Program Description-Session 1-Improving Your Emotional Intelligence Through Self-Awareness
Success in our professional and personal lives is largely dependent on having a good amount of emotional intelligence, also known as EQ. In fact, 90% of top performers also have high EQ. According to Dr. Travis Bradberry, “Emotional Intelligence is the ability to recognize emotions in yourself and others, and your ability to use this awareness to manage your behavior and relationships.” Some of the characteristics of people with high emotional intelligence include, the ability to remain calm under pressure, the ability to effectively manage conflict, the ability to be empathetic to team members, and the ability to be thoughtful decision-makers. The good news is emotional intelligence skills can be improved with a strong commitment to increased self-awareness and a willingness to make small behavior changes.
Self-Awareness is integral to improving our Emotional Intelligence. Research suggests that when we see ourselves clearly, we are more confident and creative. We make sounder decisions, build stronger relationships, and communicate more effectively. We are better workers who get more promotions and we’re more effective leaders with more-satisfied employees.
