~Research shows that Emotional Intelligence (or EQ) is twice as important as IQ in contributing to excellence and that EQ can be increased.

~The ability to choose how we behave in stressful situations is a competitive advantage for leaders of every stripe. 

~Help your clients reframe “negative” emotions that arise in stressful situations and leverage the inherent gifts of each. This knowledge and action will facilitate your client’s shift from reflexive reaction to conscious behavioral choice. 

~In this session we’ll also look at the definition of EQ and the assessment tool (EQ in Action Profile) available to evaluate your client’s EQ dimensions. 

At the end of this interactive session, you will leave with the following practical tools:

  • A working definition of Emotional Intelligence your clients can use every day
  • The ability to help your clients recognize and leverage the power of “negative emotions”
  • An overview of the EQ in Action Profile, an EQ assessment tool
