Think emotions don’t belong in the workplace? Whether we want them there or not, emotions play a principal role in our workplace satisfaction. The primary reason employees leave a company is because of the relationship with their boss. The Emotional Intelligence (EQ) course works with leaders and direct reports to manage emotions in the workplace for a more successful and productive environment.

What Other Participants Thought:
“It was very interactive & that was helpful to engage in different scenarios which may be relevant to real life.”
“Physical activity as a mechanism of engagement was highly effective. Role playing is not only fun but sufficiently ‘different’ that it really works!”
“I really enjoyed learning about EQ in action—it was a great reminder to step out of my automatic habits in order to get different results.”
“I learned more about myself. My feelings are not alone. Everyone has stress and many people get the fight or flight reaction. Nice instructors and students.”
