Next Level Emotional Intelligence: Developing for the Future
How can you build your knowledge and skills around emotional intelligence?
There are many introductory courses on emotional intelligence. Many of them are very good and cover the topic well. But what if you want to learn more than just the basics?
This course has been designed to take a deeper dive into emotional intelligence looking at the various elements of emotional intelligence in more depth.
Emotional intelligence is how you combine your thinking with your feelings in order to build good quality relationships and to make good authentic decisions. It is managing who you are in the moment to meet your emotional needs through conscious choice and is fundamental to leading a full, rich and rewarding life.
Your knowledge and skills in this area will enable you to understand that emotional intelligence is the difference that makes the difference. Being human, you are not going to get it right all the time as you are going to have values, preferences and ways of experiencing life that lead to prejudice and bias. Awareness of these and working with these is a part of being emotionally intelligent.
Your emotional intelligence is your responsibility! How you react and respond to events is governed by your emotional intelligence. You can work to develop your emotional intelligence, but this is not easy.
The course covers
- Emotional Intelligence and your Inner World
- Emotional Intelligence and your Outer World
- Emotional Unintelligence - Behaviours that are NOT Emotionally Intelligent
There is a practical activity exploring the behaviours of Emotionally Unintelligent Leaders for you to complete outside of the course to find out what behavioural traps you can fall into. This involves some honesty and some reflection. It will help to guide you on what and how you need to change. [WARNING: this takes some effort and you may not like what you find out!]
Changing the way that you work with your emotions is not easy. This course will give you some insights BUT developing your emotional intelligence will take you time and a lot of effort, and even then you are not going to get it right all the time!! Emotional intelligence is about improving performance, engagement and well being in a sustainable way, so that it sticks.
The course contains narrated videos, activities and some fun material to download.
