Psychologist Alan Lyons shares how to develop your emotional intelligence and boost your performance in the workplace.
In this webinar Alan discusses emotional intelligence (EI), how we develop it and how we can boost our performance in the workplace if we develop our EI. This session covers:

Caroline you can’t go wrong as teams who even take time out to discuss their emotions are far more likely to start to collectively develop them. As Carl Rogers stated ‘change happens where the awareness is’. Also you could use an EQ group report, which will give you a construct to position the team conversation around.

Win them over by being your authentic self – always be yourself Mohamad! Unless, of course you can be a pirate than always be a pirate!
The reason why EQ is discussed and used in development initiatives so often is because it is a great predictor of high performance and perhaps more importantly it is something you can develop and accelerate learning in.
