Emotional Intelligence at Work

Emotional Intelligence involves the ability to recognize, understand and manage our own emotions, as well as the ability to recognize, understand, and influence the emotions of others. Various qualities, skills, practices, and behaviors contribute to how we can develop and foster Emotional Intelligence. I am excited to offer public workshops/courses, as well as tailored programming to organizations and groups. I also have current openings for  Emotional Intelligence-Based Executive Coaching.
Upcoming workshops and Seminars…
1) Emotional Intelligence at Work (Intro Level)

This introduction level workshop offers a rich foundation for understanding the concepts and qualities involved in Emotional Intelligence in the workplace and especially in leadership impact. Participants will engage in experiential learning, practices, reflections, and exercises around the 5 Components of Emotional Intelligence as delineated and researched by psychologist, Daniel Goleman:

  • Self-awareness – This is the foundation on which the other components are built, and involves our ability to recognize and understand our own moods and emotions, needs, and drives, as well as their effect on others
  • Self-regulation – entails our ability to control or redirect disruptive impulses and moods especially that may not serve us or contribute to the outcomes we are seeking, and involves our ability to suspend judgment and to think before acting. Hallmarks include trustworthiness and integrity; comfort with ambiguity; and openness to change.
  • Motivation – focuses on the development and connection to our internal vision and motivation that can be an anchor, grounding us and helping us focus and navigate our lives and work, especially in times of uncertainty and conflict.
  • Empathy – entails the ability to understand the emotions of others as well as the skill in being able to respond to people from this place of emotional understanding.
  • Social skills – involve effectively managing relationships and building networks, as well as an ability to find common ground and build rapport.
