Training details

Training overview

Background

Emotional Intelligence is just being nice to people, right? Absolutely not.  It’s so much more nuanced than this. Emotions are our key internal feedback mechanism. Emotions indicate, and help us facilitate change. To make the most of change, we need to understand and work with this mechanism.

Emotional intelligence is the capacity to recognise, discern between, work with, manage and express emotions appropriately, in yourself and with others, to support the quality of your thinking and behaviours.  Sometimes called EQ, it helps us understand what’s most important to us, to navigate our lies effectively to perform well and succeed.

Solution

Our approach is unique.  This great introduction course educates, inspires, challenges and teaches emotional awareness and management from different key perspectives. Unlike most which still focus somewhat on the cognitive, we teach EQ holistically. We focus on mind-body as well as cognitive-emotional development techniques.

Who should attend?

Audience

Do you have a pulse? Then this course is for you. In truth, sceptics are often converted on this course, but we’d prefer you to be curious already & ready to see yourself, others & life differently.

Course Length

This course now runs for a full 4 hours. We pack a lot into this seminar. On completion, you’ll realise not only how much we cover but also how much more there is to learn leaving with lots of food for thought & practical tips. 1 -4 day tailored in-house courses are also available.

How we embed change

Embedding change

To gain the most from EQ training we ask attendees to be open, to use the comprehensive EQ guide as directed after sessions and to practice key tools and techniques daily. Combining these with EQ testing and coaching is the ultimate way to make significant changes you and your teams will feel and others will notice.

Pre-reading

Attendees receive a pre-course questionnaire to help take stock and think about areas of focus.  We ask attendees to these bring along. But don’t worry no one has to share anything they don’t wish to.

Additional Option: Taking an overall or social EQ psychometric assessment provides a baseline of an attendee’s EQ attributes which can be developed further with one-2-one coaching. Any changes can then easily be monitored going forward.  EQ testing is not necessary for the course but helps embed learning.

Stakeholder engagement

When there are stakeholders or champions for a programme delivered in-house, the engagement and take-home can dramatically increase. We strongly encourage programme sponsors within an organisation to uncover their own EQ initially so they can see how EQ may be further integrated into cultures.

In-depth programmes

Whether you’re looking for introduction EQ courses or more comprehensive programmes, we’ve got you covered.

We run tailored in-house EQ masterclasses (when face-to-face is allowed) as well as webinar modules online. Programmes can also include coaching programmes that deepen and embed learning.

These ultimate EQ change-maker programmes combine tailored elements of training, EQ testing & executive coaching. These are profound leadership training programmes that bring out leadership skills that matter most for particular roles, people & their teams.

We can actually reveal often complex team dynamics & distil them into easily understandable insights & training programmes. EQ programmes leverage the psychometric tests that we use to uncover exactly what’s needed & also prove what’s improved.  Again, our approach is unique here, by utilising not one but two profound EQ psychometric assessments you & your team uncover both overall personal, as well as detailed social, attributes.

 

Online EQ Webinars

Online EQ Webinars

Since the end of March 2020, we started running online EQ webinars, where attendees sign in from a PC/MAC anywhere using Zoom.  We hope to start up face-to-face workshops again when safe to do so (hopefully Autumn ’21) when the Covid19 pandemic subsides.

These great online webinars run for 90 – 120 minutes and can be run as modules to build up EQ knowledge over weeks. They are interactive using chat, hands-up, thumbs-up, group discussion, group polls, slides, videos and Q&A. We also use the pre-course questionnaires and follow-up quizzes. People are often surprised by how engaging and effective the webinars are.

Ask us how online EQ webinars can work for you.

London Workshops - TBC

We’ve been running public face-to-face emotional intelligence workshops in London, UK since 2010. We’ve had to take a break since March 2020 because of the Covid19 pandemic. However, we will be back, hopefully in the Autumn of 2021, still in our excellent central London venues. Meanwhile, we’ve been tweaking our EQ webinars over the past year to be as engaging and interactive as possible. We have also managed to run face-to-face training programmes, where legally permissible, across Europe.
