Most people have heard of emotional intelligence and many people know what it is, but far fewer people know how to use it to improve their performance, wellbeing and relationships. Particularly in times of stress, it can be easy to forget being emotionally intelligent. The good news is that spotting triggers and consistently responding in a more emotionally intelligent way can be trained!
The benefits of emotional intelligence are manifold: (1) improved performance - better decision making, time management, presentation skills, change tolerance, and earnings; (2) improved wellbeing - decreased anxiety and stress, and better stress tolerance, resilience, anger management and assertiveness; and (3) improved relationships - more empathy and compassion, and better communication and people skills.
Key elements of emotional intelligence are self-awareness, self-regulation, mindfulness, motivation,
social awareness and interpersonal skills.

The training day will provide an understanding of emotional intelligence on a theoretical and, most importantly, on a practical level. The morning session will: (1) look at communication between the emotional and rational brain; (2) provide a brief overview of the key components underlying emotional intelligence and mindfulness; (3) provide strategies for noticing and self-managing difficult emotions, such as fear and anger; and (4) provide strategies for harnessing positive emotions to boost passion and motivation.
The afternoon will focus on social awareness, including empathy, compassion and relationship management. The session will conclude with time for questions and for reflections on how skills learned throughout the day can be incorporated into participants’ personal and work context. The presentation style will be interactive, and will include examples, case studies, audio visual material, exercises and role-plays.
