Emotional Intelligence for Employees and Leaders

Emotional intelligence (EQ) is “a set of emotional and social skills that influence the way we perceive and express ourselves, develop and maintain social relationships, cope with challenges, and use emotional information in an effective and meaningful way (mhs.com).” The Emotional Quotient Inventory (EQ-i 2.0) assesses the application of these emotional and social skills, reflecting on an individual’s overall well-being and capacity for success in life. While EQ is not the sole predictor of human performance and development potential, it is proven by research as a key indicator in these areas. EQ is also not a static factor—on the contrary; an individual can change and develop their EQ over time in targeted areas. This course uses the EQ-i 2.0, which assesses the interaction between a participant and the environment in which they operate. Using the recognized leading EQ-i 2.0 model, the course examines the 16 components of EQ and uses the assessment’s results in helping participants identify strengths and weaknesses within their EQ. The course provides participants with methods for establishing targeted development programs and focuses on increasing participant performance, interaction with others, and leadership potential based upon the components of EQ. The EQ-i 2.0 identifies developmental potentials and provides participants with targeted strategies, making it a highly effective tool for employee development. This course is interactive and includes direct instruction, group discussion, and the EQ-i 2.0 assessment.
