The ability to manage your own emotions and develop an evolved sense of emotional intelligence (EQ) can lead to greater success and happiness in life and in the workplace. This workshop will build on the skills you have learned in Emotional Intelligence in the Workplace to utilize EQ. Recognizing and being able to effectively communicate about your own emotions and self-awareness can enhance your ability to build a strong team either in a leadership role or as a member. When we are able to act with empathy, it fosters an environment where team members can shine as both as individuals and as a whole. 

Join us for this practical, results-oriented workshop that links Emotional Intelligence concepts to the practice of cultivating a high performing team. This session builds on the content of Emotional Intelligence in the Workplace and focuses on advanced applications and life-long practices. The goal is to deepen your understanding of EQ and how it relates to working with others.
