EQ (emotional intelligence) is central to our success in work and life. It is the ability to recognize our emotions, understand what they're telling us, and realize how they affect people around us. EQ also involves our perception of others, and understanding of how they feel allows us to manage relationships effectively. For a leader, EQ provides a vital edge.

Emotional Intelligence_ The Leader’s Edge with Georgetown University’s Prof. Michael McDermott (FINAL) from Ideas for Leaders on Vimeo.

Our psychological make up consists of three main elements: personality, IQ (general intelligence), and EQ. Personality and IQ are fairly stable and relatively fixed. Whereas EQ is not fixed and can be learned or enhanced.

In this webinar, we will look at simple processes you and your team can use every day to ensure that you are exhibiting emotional intelligence. And you will learn: 

  • What we mean by EQ
  • Goleman’s model of EQ
  • How your EQ fits with other elements of your personality structure
  • Why it is important to develop your EQ for leadership effectiveness; and
  • How to manage energy and motivation in yourself and your team.
