Learning Objectives:
This course will explore various communications and social styles faced by executives in business settings, as well as the strengths and weaknesses of each. A self-assessment will help individuals understand their own emotional intelligence while positioning them to enjoy increased professional development, enhanced team skills and improved job performance.  At the conclusion of this session you will be able to:

  • Define emotional intelligence
  • Describe the advantages of having emotional intelligence
  • Define your social style and the tools to improve
  • Identify your social style and challenges to overcome
  • Identify ways to improve your versatility
  • Identify needs & values


Program Content/Course Description:
There’s a very real difference between so-called “book smarts” and what’s known as “emotional intelligence” – the ability to leverage social skills in business settings. Book smarts does not equal business success, and this course will help improve anyone’s ability to relate to people, manage difficult situations and influence and inspire others.
