About this course

When most people think of the word “intelligence”, they often imagine someone with academic achievements or qualifications, or someone who has the ability to quickly learn new skills, solve problems, or remember lots of intellectual information. Although this is one kind of intelligence, there’s another kind that’s just as important and often undervalued... Emotional Intelligence.

Emotional intelligence (also known as EI) is the ability to recognise, understand and appropriately respond to the emotions in ourselves and others. It sounds simple, but not everyone is gifted with strong emotional intelligence. Fortunately, just like general intelligence, it can be strengthened with consistent practice.

This Emotional Intelligence training course, which is suitable for all levels of employees, aims to help the user develop and demonstrate their emotional intelligence, which they can put to very good use each and every day.

Very helpfull

Good course learnt new things

It was very relevant to my work

I work with many learners, all of whom have disabilities. Some of these learners (who are, in the main, on the autism spectrum) have quite low levels of emotional intelligence, so the course was invaluable to me, to help them. One of my learners has acute anxiety and social barriers, so raising awareness of emotional intelligence levels (and how to help in this respect) is very relevant and effective. Thank you.

Why is this training important?

Business benefits

Those with high emotional intelligence understand themselves and their emotions clearly. They are also very aware of how they can influence those around them. Essentially, emotional intelligence gives people an awareness of their emotions and their impact.

Emotional intelligence is a huge asset for employees to have, and it's understandable why. Many soft skills, like empathy, curiosity, and trust are built on the foundation of emotional intelligence, and we know that soft skills are now more important in the modern workplace than ever before.
