Emotional intelligence (EI) for the new world of work Workshop

The ever-changing and fast-paced world of work places ever greater demands on individuals. It is widely accepted that emotional intelligence is a better predictor of effective leadership and general success in the workplace than IQ.

Emotional intelligence empowers us to recognise and understand our own emotions and feelings, gain insight into how we express ourselves, improving our empathy and develop and maintain healthy social relationships. By developing our emotional intelligence, we learn to cope with environmental demands and pressures more effectively.

Emotional intelligence has been identified as one of the core skills needed for the new world of work. This refers to the skills needed to identify, understand and manage our own emotions, and those of the people around us.

This workshop will equip delegates with the knowledge and practical skills to discover their own levels of emotional intelligence, as well as to enhance their strengths, and address areas for development.

Benefits for the individual include:

  • Being more positive about themselves
  • Being less impulsive
  • Coping more effectively with stress
  • Managing interpersonal relationships better
  • Positively influencing those around you

Benefits for the organisation include:

  • Improved quality of leadership
  • Increased overall productivity
  • Improved decision-making
  • Enhanced ability to cope with change
  • Improved interpersonal relationships
  • Improving empathy
  • More effective teamwork and collaboration

Some food for thought: Solid research confirms that improving emotional intelligence in the workplace does not only have a positive impact on the individuals, but also on the organisation’s bottom line.


This half-day workshop will be beneficial for Managers, Leaders, Team leaders, Supervisors and individuals and business professionals who want to improve performance and relationships.
