Driving Performance with Emotional Intelligence

"Companies can continue to give top priority to financial performance -- but many now also realize that technical and intellectual skills are only part of the equation for success. A growing number of organizations are now convinced that people's ability to understand and to manage their emotions improves their performance, their collaboration with colleagues, and their interaction with customers. After decades of businesses seeing "hard stuff" and "soft stuff" as separate domains, emotional competence may now be a way to close that breach and to produce a unified view of workplace performance."

Program Overview

During this session we will explore the importance of understanding, managing, and utilizing emotions in ways that enhance interpersonal communication, foster satisfying relationships, and result in greater productivity.  Many people have been conditioned to believe that emotions are not welcome or useful in the workplace.  In other words, all workplace decisions should be based on entirely on logic and reason.  The problem with this approach is that we are by our very nature emotional beings.  We simply can not be unemotional.  Our only choice then is to embrace our emotions, understand how they work, and become better prepared to leverage them productively. 

Learning Objectives:
During this program we will:

  • Describe the importance of  emotions and emotional intelligence in the workplace
  • Increase your level of self-awareness through the BarOn EI assessment
  • Examine how emotions impact communication, decision-making, and problem-solving through the use of engaging, experiential exercises
  • Identify personal strengths and growth opportunities for development in your emotional intelligence

Five critical EQ categories to be addressed:

  • Intrapersonal: the ability to know and manage yourself 
  • Interpersonal: understanding and relating to others
  • Adaptability: flexible and realistic problem solving
  • Stress Management: the ability to face adversity with calmness
  • General Mood: overall outlook and satisfaction
