Emotional Intelligence In Workplace Communication

Emotional Intelligence has been construed to mean different things ever since the original work on emotional intelligence started in the late 80’s. The enthusiastic response to Daniel Goleman’s book resulted in an explosion of interest in the concept which over night created a cottage industry of tests, methods and unfortunately wild claims as to what emotional intelligence predicts. Having a series of tests is good for recruitment purposes. How does it pan out in the way we communicate and build relationships at the workplace? This course provides a clear and quick understanding of the topic as well as some practical ways to use empathetic methods in the daily challenges in any organization. The learning points provided can be applied when communicating with co-workers and suppliers. Participants will have access to an online library of sample documents and letters for their reference after the course.
