Course Overview

Are you an emotionally intelligent leader? Have you ever wondered why some leverage, while others struggle with emotions in a business environment? The foundation and success for all effective leaders include their ability to optimize their natural talents AND their ability to leverage the talents of others. IQ and business acumen is a starting point.

The "fuel" to leverage your cognitive intelligence, business acumen, and professional skills is emotional intelligence. We experience the value and downfall of "being emotional" but are we aware of how it impacts us and those we lead? During this course, we will move from learning to understanding, and then to applying tactics and strategies to leverage emotional intelligence.
