What You Will Learn

This course explores little known ways that emotional intelligence can be used in the workplace by investigating what it is and what it is not. It covers the main models of emotional intelligence and what they mean but more importantly how they can be practically applied at work.

The course resolves any confusion you may have around some of the terminology used in various emotional intelligence courses, such as what is the difference between EI and EQ? You'll get to understand why EI is a broader term that covers emotional intelligence in much more depth.

People often talk about positive and negative emotions. This is not that helpful as emotions cannot really be labelled in that way.

The course investigates the advantages and disadvantages of emotional intelligence, ways it can be improved and some do's and don'ts of working with emotional intelligence. It will test your emotional intelligence!

  • Recognize the importance of understanding the emotions that you experience.
  • Examine how to practice and learn how to develop emotional intelligence.
  • Discover how to improve your relationships and performance by gaining insights into the emotions of other people.
  • Identify why you react to situations with a particular focus on how your feelings and emotions impact upon your performance.
