Emotional Intelligence: Introduction

Emotional intelligence is a facet of human intelligence that shapes your ability to adapt to life events, based on the information conveyed through both your own emotions and the emotions of the people around you. The concept was originally put forward by Salovey and Mayer in 1990 to describe two types of intelligence that Gardner had already identified, namely intrapersonal intelligence, or the ability to know and manage your emotions, and interpersonal intelligence, the capacity to be sensitive to and interact effectively with others. Goleman’s seminal book on the topic, Emotional Intelligence, published in 1995, legitimized emotional input on the job and recognized the importance of emotions in enhancing quality of life in the workplace. Emotional intelligence is indisputably a plus in the business world. Those with a high EQ are generally looked on as a having strong leadership qualities.

This seminar will enable you to acquire and fine-tune skills related to emotional intelligence and easily integrate them into your professional life. It will also empower you to develop positive work-related relationships and exercise your leadership.
