Emotional Intelligence:

Strategies for Choosing Effective Emotions

Course Description:

Emotional intelligence, also called EQ, is the ability to be aware of and to manage emotions and relationships. It’s a pivotal factor in personal and professional success.

IQ will get you in the door, but it is your EQ, your ability to connect with others and manage your emotions that will determine how successful you are in life.

When we look at truly extraordinary people who inspire and make a difference you will see that they have effective emotions for current situations and connect with people at a personal and emotional level.
