Essentials of Emotional Intelligence for Improved Decision Making
Current research shows that stress and anger can seriously impede productivity and problem-solving in the workplace, as well as inhibit team building and decision making. Learn how to manage your emotions and mitigate their negative consequences through enhanced emotional intelligence.
A high level of emotional intelligence is critical in the learning and development industry. L&D professionals spend their time developing relationships, team building, influencing people, and negotiating, often in an intricate environment. By enhancing your emotional intelligence, you can perform better in these roles, as well as improve your decision-making and problem-solving abilities, influence the goals and outcomes of a project, and most importantly, deliver performance value to your stakeholders.
Research shows that when someone becomes overly stressed at work from a specific incident, it can take them more than four hours to recover. Stress and anger impede decision-making abilities and cause teams to fall apart. How can you become more aware of potential stressors and other emotional “triggers,” and their effects on yourself and your team?
This workshop will introduce and enhance your understanding of Emotional Intelligence (EQ) – your ability to identify and manage your own emotions and those of others – so that you and your team can make better decisions. You’ll gain a better understanding of how others react to stress, and learn strategies for how to best react to problems caused by stress.
