Increasing Your Emotional Intelligence in the Workplace and Beyond

HRDQ-U Webinar | Increasing Your Emotional Intelligence in the Workplace and Beyond

60 minutes

Emotional intelligence is the ability to comprehend your emotions and to manage them effectively. It helps you say the right thing and accurately judge how the other person is reacting. It encompasses self-awareness (knowing what you are feeling when you are feeling it) as well as self-regulation (using your emotions to serve you, not get in the way). It also involves motivation (delaying gratification to pursue important goals), empathy (sensing what others are feeling) and social skills (interacting with others comfortably, cooperating, negotiating, persuading, leading).
