In his famous book, Emotional Intelligence: Why It Can Matter More Than IQ, Psychologist Daniel Goleman brought the idea of EI to the masses. Goleman based his ideas on emerging work in neuroscience that shows that the brain’s emotional centres are involved in everything we think and do and are enormously important in our daily life.
Emotional Intelligence (EI) is the ability to observe, distinguish, control and appraise our emotions. The aim is to use our awareness of EI to manage our behaviour and relationships. This five-day course will help you develop and enhance your EI and communication skills. It will focus on practical skills development that will significantly benefit the persona individually and in their work life.
This course will focus on how EI relates to the work of engineers. It will be run by recognised global expert and author in the area.
