Emotional Intelligence is widely recognised as a key differentiator of success in (and out of) the workplace. The ability to perceive and manage your own and others emotions has implications for how you manage/lead people, work as part of a team, build and develop relationships, deliver customer service and much more. This presentation will help you understand what EI is and its underlying competencies. We will explore how it can be developed, and share some case studies that show the business benefits of increased EI.
