E.I. for Groups: A Leader's Toolkit for Building Emotionally Intelligent Teams

Emotional Intelligence is recognized as an important contributor to work performance and personal well-being. However, today, work is increasingly team-based, so group leaders need advanced skills to build an emotionally intelligent team. This class will focus on the proactive approaches and tools for creating an E.I. culture that enables respectful, effective and creative collaboration even when the going gets tough. Emotionally intelligent teams are better equipped to solve problems, adapt to change, work together more effectively and achieve greater productivity. For this class, it will be assumed that participants are familiar with E.I. and want to lead or influence a team to become an extraordinary one. Participants will have the advantage of completing the EQi 2.0 self-assessment in advance of the class — the cost is included in the class fee.
