Emotional Intelligence (EI)
Building and maintaining effective relationships is not only critical to our success at work, but to our survival as a species. Emotional Intelligence is a key set of specific skills that helps us build, maintain and enhance our relationships with others. These same skills also help us manage our stress, make more effective decisions and build our personal resilience.
We live in a fast-paced, complex and uncertain world which provides us with many opportunities at work and at home to have our emotional hot buttons pressed. Neuroscience is helping us understand how these emotional triggers work and is also confirming what we probably intuitively knew already – that as humans, we are not designed for social isolation, but for connection. But how do we build the skills we need to connect effectively with others?
In our Emotional Intelligence workshops, we start by explaining the science behind EI and help people gain a baseline understanding of what constitutes productive and unproductive emotions.
We integrate insights from Neuroscience to help participants become more conscious of their stressors and emotional triggers and equip them with practical tools and strategies to demonstrate more productive and helpful emotions in the real-life situations they face.
Our EI workshops
Our EI workshops are designed to help:
- Develop increased levels of self-awareness
- Build an understanding of how emotions impact the results we get
- Enhance our ability to observe emotions in ourselves and others
- Choose our emotions intelligently to align more effectively with the situation we face
- Apply effective self-management tools and strategies
- Build our capacity to be more present, genuine and effective with others
Workshops can be customised to meet your organisation’s specific needs and supported by follow-up one-on-one coaching if required. Please contact us for more information.
Assessing Emotional Intelligence using Genos Feedback
Developing our EI is most effectively achieved through understanding our strengths and opportunities for development. We use the Genos Emotional Intelligence assessment tool to provide workshop participants with this feedback and support them in developing a set of core emotional intelligence skills.
With the gift of greater self-awareness, we can be more conscious of when our emotions might be aligning or misaligning with the task at hand and we can choose how to behave to interact more effectively with the people around us.
