Based on the groundbreaking work of international bestselling author Daniel Goleman, this seminar looks at the implications of “EQ,” not “IQ” for personal excellence. The research shows that for people in entry level and executive positions, emotional intelligence is more predictive of achievement and promotability than advanced degrees or technical expertise. With this knowledge, members of work teams, project leaders, and supervisors will improve their ability to influence others and coach effectively. Goleman’s insights into the latest research produced 25 criteria for improving an employee’s EQ and ideas on how to cultivate EQ in oneself and others.
Intended Audience
