Workshops - Emotional Intelligence: The Leading Edge**

Smart people make the best leaders.  Well, sometimes! General intelligence is certainly a factor in developing successful leaders.  However, a growing body of research suggests that Emotional Intelligence (EI) may be more important to overall leadership effectiveness and success.

Emotional Intelligence (EI) is concerned with understanding oneself and others, relating to people, and adapting to and coping with environmental demands and challenges. Think of EI as organizational "common sense" or the ability to get along with others.

Using the BarOn EQ-i® assessment tool as a foundation for this half-day workshop, participants will:

  • Gain an understanding of EI and why it is important
  • Learn about the major components of EI
  • Assess their personal EI strengths and developmental needs
  • Build EI capability and skill in the areas of Self-Awareness and Empathy
  • Develop their ability to manage teams and diverse groups


While general intelligence (IQ) is mostly fixed at an early stage in life, the good news is that Emotional Intelligence (EI) skills can be learned and improved throughout life. More importantly, enhancing your Emotional Intelligence capabilities may yield better performance and success in work and life.
