Emotional Intelligence half day course with CPA Ontario, October 15th, 2020


Part 1
Emotional Intelligence: The three most important EQ skills needed in business today.

Most people realize that being emotionally smart helps in business, and there’s no shortage of empirical evidence to suggest that this realization is pretty accurate. The real question is: can people learn to be more emotionally smart? The answer is, yes. As with all forms of intelligence, there is a natural aptitude, nature, and a learned component, nurture. Individuals displaying high emotional quotients likely got lucky in both areas, born with the abilities and surrounded by good role models. Another way to boost your skills is by attending an experiential webinar that provides a nurturing of abilities.

This, do not miss, webinar gets to the heart of what matters most in our daily interactions with colleagues, clients, family and friends…. emotion.

We explore three areas that each participant brings to their interactions: Curiosity, Resilience, and Empathy.

How is it that some people seem to coast through even the most difficult circumstances with relative ease while others are floored by them? Why is it that some employees almost never have a customer complaint made against them even if they make the same mistake as everyone else does? And why do we like going for coffee with one person more than with another? Because some people are more emotionally smart than others. And as a result they’re more resilient, more empathetic, and more interesting. Does this mean that some people, “got it” and others don’t? Thankfully, no. We all can reap the benefits of being emotionally intelligent because much of emotional I.Q. (E.Q.) is learned
