Emotional Intelligence (EQ) is widely misunderstood. EQ was never about being nice to people, it is about understanding the impact of emotions (visible and hidden) on decision making, leadership and building effective relationships. This session will briefly introduce EQ but then deeply focus on two important areas; optimism and stress tolerance. In times of uncertainty these two unique elements of EQ are proving to be the difference between success and failure. This is all made even more challenging as we lead and manage remotely. Things that come easily face to face are harder in the virtual world. This makes understanding EQ even more important.

This session will help you assess where you are in these areas and give you usable tools to:

  • Differentiate between EQ and pity
  • Develop strategies to increase optimism and stress tolerance
  • Increase team effectiveness
