Emotional Intelligence is now considered the most important skill of the 21st century, particularly for Leaders, and the greatest predictor of personal and organizational success.  At its core, Emotional Intelligence is grounded in understanding yourself at a deep level and using that understanding to guide and manage your actions and behaviors.  People who incorporate Emotional Intelligence in their professional lives report a higher level of personal effectiveness and career satisfaction.

This fully immersive 5-module course takes you on a journey that begins with:


  • A basic understanding of the science and business benefits of Emotional Intelligence
  • The course will also provide a deep understanding of your self-awareness through a series of assessments
