Program Description: 

The most effective professionals have a high degree of what has come to be known as emotional intelligence. The qualities that make up emotional intelligence – self-awareness, self-regulation, motivation, empathy, and social skill – enable the most successful professionals to raise their own and others’ performance to a higher level. 

Here’s the bottom line: In the rough and tumble world of work, having negative thoughts and feelings is unavoidable. However, if we understand and expand our Emotional Intelligence capabilities, we will be able to overcome our negative thoughts and feelings, and learn to act in a way that reflects our values, rather than what we are feeling at the moment. 

In this highly interactive session you will not only learn: 
- How to Give and Receive Professional Criticism
- How to Understand Your Emotions and Respond Professionally
- How to Incorporate Perception Checking and Keep Conversations Civil
- How to Motivate Yourself and Others
- How to Build a Supportive Communication Climate
