EQEmotional Intelligence is the ability to recognize the meanings of emotion and their relationships and to reason and problem-solve on the basis of them.

Because it decides HOW you interact with people in your life through things like intuition, empathy, stress management capacities, resilience and integrity, it has a significant impact in your success at work.


Join us for this 1 hour in-person training session to:

  • Learn about Emotional Intelligence (EI) and how it can foster a more productive professional and personal life.
  • Understand how emotions (both your own and others) impact communication and can affect outcomes.
  • Gain quick tips on how to diffuse and navigate emotionally charged situations.
