When and where: Steiner Academy Exeter – 21st August 2018, 9-1pm

Do you want to:

– understand yourself and others a little better?
– be able to manage and lead your teams more effectively?
– improve your resilience at home and at work?
– develop yourself?
– be more successful at your job?

Emotional intelligence plays a major role in our personalities and our relationships with others. Happy, successful people usually have high emotional intelligence. 90% of top performers are high in EI.*

Good news: it can be learned.

So how emotionally intelligent are you? You’ll find out as part of our introductory course: Emotional Intelligence.

We’ll take you through an understanding of emotional intelligence, what it really means and how it influences our daily lives at work and at home.

We’ll create and explore your own personal report and get you started using tools that will help tune up your emotional intelligence.

You’ll leave us with a clear plan of how you’re going to use and develop your new skills. Increasing emotional intelligence can make a big difference in our lives. 

Here’s what the course includes:

1.  Exercises and discussions
 – What is Emotional Intelligence and how does it impact our lives?
– The importance of Emotional Intelligence
– The relation of Emotional Intelligence to stress and burnout

2.  Your personal EI report. We build the reports from a detailed questionnaire you complete before the course. The report will highlight your real strengths and identify areas for further development.

3. Improve your emotional intelligence
– Building on your strengths
– How to develop your emotional intelligence, including coaching
– Your personalised plan

We’ll keep hunger at bay with a continental breakfast, snacks, tea and coffee

The group size is limited so we can provide a more effective facilitation and group coaching with two very experienced facilitators.
