How To Develop Your Emotional Intelligence
Emotional intelligence is our ability to be self-aware and to recognise and manage our emotions and those of the people around us.
Emotional intelligence provides a framework to enable us to get the results we want in managing others and ourselves.
Unlike IQ, which is largely genetic, the skills of emotional intelligence can be learned. It’s not easy, however.
Growing your emotional intelligence takes practice and commitment. But the payoffs are well worth the investment.
Participants will learn how to recognise and manage emotions in yourself and others by:
- understanding what emotional intelligence really is
- becoming aware of the 5 facets of emotional intelligence
- identifying your emotional intelligence profile: a self-evaluation
- knowing how to be emotionally intelligent – the 10 principles for success.
In this workshop we explore the difference between self-esteem and self-confidence and the 5 facets of emotional intelligence are identified.
Participants identify how they would like to come across to others and, using a short profile, participants also find out how they actually come across to others in real life.
In a practical activity each participant identifies their core values and then completes a short emotional intelligence profile.
The workshop concludes with every participant taking part in a very powerful activity called The Power of Affirmation.
“If your emotional abilities aren’t in hand, if you don’t have self-awareness, if you are not able to manage your distressing emotions, if you can’t have empathy and effective relationships, then no matter how smart you are, you are not going to get very far.”
Daniel Goleman, author of Emotional Intelligence
