A leader leading with emotional intelligence (EQ)

In this full-day workshop, participants will be equipped with skills, knowledge and attributes to develop their Emotional Intelligence to increase their effectiveness at the “people side” of leadership. A leader with higher Emotional Intelligence can manage his or her own impulses better, communicate with others more effectively, manage change well, solve problems quickly, and use humour to build rapport in tense situations. These leaders also have empathy, remain optimistic even in the face of adversity, and are effective at educating and persuading their teams in their workplace.

Participants will learn techniques and strategies that are essential for transforming them into Emotionally Intelligent leaders.

When your leaders are more emotionally intelligent, your company will witness improvement in performance, profitability and organisation climate as a result of improvement in trust, teamwork, planning & decision making, motivation, energy & drive, and interpersonal relationships.
