Emotional Intelligence at Work

May 27, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 12:30 pm EDT



The rapidly changing world of neuroscience has given rise to concepts of multiple types of intelligence, including emotional and social intelligence. Success in an organization is no longer solely defined by task skills, abilities, and traditional leadership models. Self-awareness of our emotions and those of others is critical to building healthy organizations. In this introductory, hands-on course, we will discuss what emotional intelligence is, examine the basic neuroscience behind the model, and assess EI competencies. We will identify how Emotional Intelligence impacts both the business of our organizations and our daily working environment. Participants will discuss how EI can strengthen leadership roles and build better teams as well as learn ways that their EI capacity can be strengthened over time.

In this workshop, participants will:

  • Develop an understanding of the role of EI in leadership and supervision
  • Explore basic tools for Emotionally Intelligent Leaders
  • Understand the importance of positive learning in the workplace
  • The role of stress in the workplace
  • Learn to map your emotional landscape using the Yale Mood Meter
  • Learn the 5 Core Concerns in interacting with others including negotiation
