EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE

Emotional Intelligence (EI) is the dimension of intelligence responsible for our ability to manage ourselves and our relationships with others. Up to 90% of a leader’s effectiveness in the workplace is related to their level of emotional intelligence skills. Self-awareness is one of the most valuable skills a leader can possess. Participants in our EI program will have the chance to increase their self-awareness through an individual EI assessment. They will learn about and practice ways to expand competencies in the areas of:

Emotional self-awareness: The foundation upon which all other competencies are built. The ability to understand what we are feeling and why and what caused those feelings.

Self Regulation and Impulse Control: Refraining from taking action aimed at short-term gratification in favor of long-term goals. Requires the ability to pause in the moment to gain self-control.

Empathy: The ability to understand, be aware of, and be sensitive to the feelings, thoughts and experiences of another.

Assertiveness: The ability to express an honest, direct statement of what you are thinking or feeling in a way that is respectful and considerate of others.

Social Skills or Interpersonal Relationships: The ability to establish and maintain mutually satisfying relationships. Requires an ability to listen, focus on the needs of another, establish trust, and communicate honestly.

Problem Solving: The ability to identify and define problems as well as to generate and implement potentially effective solutions. Requires alertness, observation, attention, patience and perseverance.

Self Actualization: The process of striving to reach one’s full potential capacity, abilities and talents. Requires the ability and drive to set and achieve goals.

“Emotional Intelligence is the capacity for recognizing our own feelings and those of others, for motivating ourselves and for managing emotions effectively in others and ourselves."
