Emotional Intelligence


Course Description

From entry-level jobs to top executive positions, the single most important factor for predicting organizational success is not the Intelligence Quotient (IQ), advanced degrees, or technical expertise. It is Emotional Intelligence (EI). Emotional Intelligence is the ability to monitor one’s own and others’ feelings and emotions, to discriminate among them, and to use this information to guide one’s thinking and actions (Mayer and Salovey). In their highly acclaimed book, Primal Leadership: Learning to Lead with Emotional Intelligence, Daniel Goleman, Richard Boyatis, and Annie McKee offer the following lesson to leaders:

“Great leaders work through emotions. No matter what leaders set out to do – whether it’s creating a strategy or mobilizing teams to action – their success depends on how they do it. Even if they get everything else just right, if leaders fail in this primal task of driving emotions in the right direction, nothing they do will work as well as it could or should.”

Vantage’s Emotional Intelligence workshop leverages the EQ-i2.0 assessment and model, highly regarded published works, state-of-the-industry practices and tools, and our corporate experience to help participants learn the four dimensions of emotional intelligence, assess personal effectiveness in emotional intelligence competencies, and employ strategies to promote self-awareness, self-management, social awareness and relationship management.
