Emotional Intelligence

DCB 2232

EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE In our culture we look at emotions and feelings as something to be controlled or avoided. It is said over and over again, “there is no place for emotion or feelings in the workplace.” Emotional Intelligence asserts that unless people acknowledge, confront, understand, embrace and communicate human feelings and emotions more openly, appropriately, intelligently and realistically, they are doomed to keep repeating the same personal and professional mistakes that they have consistently made in the past. This course shows the participant how to develop their Emotional Intelligence so that they are better able to communicate feelings and emotions in a more effective, productive, less conflictive, more constructive way.
