Workshop Description - 1 day in length

Emotional intelligence (EI) the capacity to be aware of, control, and express one's emotions, and to handle interpersonal relationships judiciously and empathetically.

EI impacts your ability to succeed in all aspects of life. In a climate where project teams face unprecedented pressure to accomplish more with less, EI is an absolutely essential component of strong project leadership. Without the ability to motivate and engage team members, even the most practiced and detail-minded leader will fail. This all-day, interactive course covers the EI essentials – introducing key concepts, leadership styles, the role of EI in effective leadership, the four domains of EI and related competencies, and exercises for building EI.
