    • Increase capabilities to generate solutions to complex adaptive problems
    • Challenge assumptions and perspectives
    • Equip executive leaders to navigate rapidly changing and evolving environments.

    Emotional Intelligence (EQ) is the intelligence use of emotions. You intentionally make your emotions work for you by using them to help guide behaviour and thinking in ways that enhance your results.

    “Emotional intelligence ---- the ability to deliver difficult feedback to employees, the courage to ruffle feathers and drive change, the creativity to think outside the box.”  (HBR 2017)

    Join us for this 1 day leadership workshop to learn:

    • EQ’s impact on effective leadership
    • The four domains of EQ
    • Strategies for staying aware of your emotions and managing your behaviour
    • Strategies for understanding other people’s moods, behaviours and motives to improve the quality of your relationships
