Who will the Course Benefit?
This course will benefit managers that are looking to improve their emotional intelligence to subsequently deliver individual & team goals.
90% of high achievers have high Emotional Intelligence (EI). EI is recognised as the most significant contributor to business success and the key to excellence in Leadership. We can learn to be more Emotionally Intelligent and therefore increase our ability to deliver success in both our business & personal life.
This programme looks at how Managers can improve their own EI and the EI of their line reports. An EI self-assessment will identify current EI strengths & areas for development enabling each delegate to create a Personal Development Plan for the future. Throughout the day the focus is upon tips & techniques linked to the 5 EI competencies which impact on individual & team performance, with unique content across a range of subject areas. It includes, for example, how we think & how this can act as a barrier to delivering results plus how the Manager acts as the “Emotional Thermostat” for the team & the temperature which should be set to generate team achievement.
In addition there is a session on “How to be an Owl” by being wise about the importance of Political Awareness in the workplace and how through increased Political Awareness, teams & individuals will achieve more. As Plato said “One of the penalties for refusing to participate in politics is that you end up being governed by your inferiors” This course will build the capability of Managers to “govern” using EI techniques for personal & business success.
