Managing Self and Relationships for Peak Performance
Studies have shown that Emotional Intelligence is the strongest predictor of performance, explaining 58% of success in all types of jobs. Emotional Intelligence is the foundation for all critical skills and is an important factor that sets star performers apart from the rest of the pack. People with a high degree of emotional intelligence make more money, manage relationships more effectively, and report being happier and more satisfied with life. Communication between your emotional and your rational “brains” is the physical source of emotional intelligence.
Emotional Intelligence is that “something” in each of us that is a bit intangible. It affects how we manage behavior, navigate social complexities, and make personal decisions that achieve positive results.
Emotional Intelligence can be developed. This presentation will provide a basic introduction to Emotional intelligence. Participants will leave with practical ideas to begin improving their Emotional Intelligence and boost leadership competence.
