Course Overview

“IQ gets you hired, EQ gets you promoted.”

 Why does 3% of the global population hold 97% of the total wealth?  Why do smart and highly educated people fail while less brilliant enjoy massive success? Why do people with average intelligence (IQ) outperform those with high intelligence (IQ) 70% of the time? It is not because of a lack of technical intelligence or professional skills. Far from it, there is another variable that can explain the anomalies above and it’s called Emotional Intelligence (IE). To succeed in the modern world one must go beyond depending on the traditional IQ.

Emotional intelligence is the ability to sense, understand, and effectively apply the power and acumen of emotions as a source of human energy, information, connection, and influence.   If your emotional abilities aren’t in hand, if you don’t have self-awareness, if you are not able to manage your distressing emotions, if you can’t have empathy and build effective relationships, then no matter how smart you are, you are not going to get very far in both professional and personal spheres. 75% of careers are derailed for reasons related to emotional intelligence incompetency e.g. poor interpersonal skills, unsatisfactory team leadership during times of difficulty or conflict, inability to adapt to change or elicit trust, and so on.

The capacity to effectively recognize, leverage and manage emotions in oneself and others is an invaluable skill to a modern-day executive. This highly intense two (2) day course is designed to teach you just that; how to harness the power of emotional intelligence at individual level and use it to build an emotionally intelligent workplace.
