Leadership Managing People Managing yourself

About Emotional Intelligence

Emotionally intelligent people understand their own feelings and the feelings of others around them. They manage their moods, put themselves in other people’s shoes and build rewarding relationships. 95% of us think we are emotionally intelligent, but less than 15% actually are.

It’s easy to lead like-minded people, but what about people on a totally different wavelength? Can you control your instinctive fight-flight-freeze response with people or situations that make you anxious or stressed? Do you let your emotions get the better of you?   

Perhaps, like one in seven of us, your brain processes information differently. Do your colleagues understand how you work best?  Or do you suspect you have neurodiversity in your team, but don’t know how to start a conversation about it?

Soft skills like these can be hard to learn but they are leadership game-changers. The good news is that high EQ isn’t just for super humans. This session is packed with practical techniques from Cognitive Behavioural Psychology and Neuroscience. You will learn how to manage your emotions in the moment and boost your leadership effectiveness.
