Course description

Emotional Intelligence - The New Science of Success

In Leadership and the New Science, Dr. Margaret Wheatley’s provocative book on chaos theory as it pertains to organizations, our world is described as not being made up by atoms, but rather by relationships. In today’s wired world, we are more connected to each other than ever before.

Your ultimate success as a performer in your organization depends on your ability to connect – not just electronically, but interpersonally as well. This ability to build person to person connections – to work effectively with others – is a component of a skill set which is much talked about these days: Emotional Intelligence.

The concept of emotional intelligence has been around for decades, but it captured the imagination of the business world in 1995 through Daniel Goleman’s Emotional Intelligence: Why It Can Matter More Than IQ? Dr. Goleman’s research with more than 120 organizations identified four characteristics of emotional intelligence common among corporate “Superstars:”

  • Self-Awareness – your ability to tune in to your own emotions
  • Self-Management – your ability to regulate your emotions and maximize your performance
  • Social Awareness –your ability to connect with, understand and accept the emotional states of others
  • Relationship Management – your ability to interact effectively and inspire higher levels of performance from others

Over the last two decades there has been a steady stream of new insights that further illuminate the dynamics of emotional intelligence. This course will include the latest discoveries from diverse areas of study including neurology, physiology, intentionality, engagement studies, stress management research, and the insights of networking experts to deepen your understanding of emotional intelligence and enhance your ability to apply it in your workplace environments.
