Emotional Intelligence

Emotional Intelligence

Working with others requires the capacity to recognise and shape how our emotions can impact on both personal and working relationship.
The ability to develop a well-balanced array of specific emotional intelligence capabilities also known as Emotional Quotient (EQ) is one of the outstanding strengths of effective leaders because of the direct link between business success and performance. Although this programme may be considered as relevant to secular organisations, the nature of leadership role in faith organisations involves human dynamics. The emphasis on theology alone may not be sufficient for leaders to be self-aware or to develop a profound sense of human emotions which they are most likely to encounter as part of their job. EI has s a real value for churches as it embodies what the faith stands for and can impact both the spiritual and intellectual aspects of our lives.  The aim of this course is to enable participants to improve their interpersonal and intrapersonal skills, adapt and respond positively to their work environment. The course provides an opportunity to improve personal effectiveness and team performance and also learn strategies to manage your emotions and respond to the emotions of others. The course will specifically examine the core EQ skills namely, self-awareness, self-management, social awareness and (social skills) relationship management.

Participants will be able to:

  • Understand the main components of Emotional Intelligence for achieving results
  • Enhance /develop greater self-awareness and strengthen their leadership skills
  • Demonstrate the attributes of an emotionally intelligent leader
  • Respond to difficult people by inspiring and fostering respect
  • Build and maintain an emotionally intelligent team
  • Assess their emotional intelligence on completion of the EI test which then creates an opportunity to control impulsive feelings and negative behaviour.
