Learn the principles of emotional intelligence about how your emotions influence the way you understand yourself, how you build relationships, how you manage stress and how you make decisions.
Emotional intelligence is a set of emotional and social skills that collectively establish how well you:
•perceive and express yourself
•develop and maintain social relationships
•cope with day to day and major challenges
•use emotional information in effective and meaningful ways
Put simply, emotional intelligence is how you combine your thinking with your feelings in order to develop authentic relationships and make good, effective decisions.
Many organisations make the mistake by focusing on developing technical (hard) skills, but overlook the importance of soft skills – also known as power skills. Emotional intelligence has been consistently shown to be the strongest predictor of job performance. Good levels of emotional intelligence in the workplace creates more rewarding, collaborative, and satisfying relationships leading to reduced stress and anxiety and greater productivity.
The Principles of Emotional Intelligence course covers the application of emotional intelligence with a business focus in different circumstances to improve and enhance performance.
The Principles of Emotional Intelligence course is not just about deepening knowledge and skill levels, it is also about applying this and developing the wisdom that enables you to generate a greater clarity of others and real understanding in others.
Reviewing diverse scenarios within work, emotional intelligence approaches are considered with emphasis on how emotional data can be applied in managing stress, in decision making and in building authentic relationships.

PLEASE NOTE – This course is NOT for you if you are not prepared to work through the practical activities that make up a fundamental part of the course. Emotional intelligence cannot be developed by learning some techniques through watching a few video lectures. The course requires you to do some reflective thinking, to get some feedback and to discuss your development with others. I’m afraid that you won’t get the best from the course unless you are prepared to do this.
