Emotional Intelligence Training

Emotional intelligence: why this is so important for leaders

You can’t become a high functioning team just by having the most intelligent leaders on your team. Emotional intelligence (EQ) is also a factor. EQ goes beyond managing your numbers and KPI's etc. Instead, high performing teams learn how to add value by working ‘smart’ together. To do this means 'tuning into' the team story that sits behind your business.  

To access this sort of mindset requires developing empathy, listening skills, and 'tuning into' to your deeper insight and gut feelings as a team. These are subtle skills and need time to nurture and embed. Applying EQ is a highly effective way of growing as a team and adding value to your decision-making processes.

For senior people who already have the ‘right’ leadership character, then EQ can be learned, practiced and practically applied. Using emotional intelligence as a team is powerful, underpinning good teamwork.

At its core, emotional intelligence is self-awareness, effective listening, managing yourself, reading others, empathy, social awareness and being able to build effective relationships with others around you. 

" To work smart together requires collective emotional intelligence (EQ).  "

Developing your EQ capacity brings forth the courage to transform beyond basic survival, protection, and ego-driven values. You start to ‘tune-in’ to each other as a team. 

EQ helps you become mindful of how your decisions impact on the wider culture and others around you. Instead of avoiding issues, or tit-for-tat, political game-playing, or win-lose scripts, you focus your energy on higher growth-based win-win values instead. 


Leaders and executives I work with on EQ value the practical processes I use. 

I can help your team boost your EQ, so you can learn how to collaborate, and cohere together and become a highly effective leadership team. 

I facilitate 1, 2 and 4-day practical emotional intelligence training workshops for teams.

For soft skills, development programmes, training, coaching and team building days for leaders, managers, and teams, please contact me.
