With The Chapman & Co. Leadership Institute

Want to make a change in your workplace and grow together? Well, we want to help! This course is great for teams looking to cultivate a new sense of trust and empathy in the workplace.

What is Emotional Intelligence: The One Trait your Team Needs from you Right Now?

Developing emotional intelligence in the workplace has clear benefits. Emotionally intelligent people are empathetic listeners and trusting teammates. They are resilient under pressure, open to feedback, set better examples for others to follow, and make thoughtful decisions. Emotional intelligence is one of the main qualities people look for in their leaders. And the good news is that it is a skill that you can start honing right now.

In this class, you will:

  • Become more present by developing an awareness of how you show up and the impact this has on others
  • Build trust by behaving with emotional honesty and integrity
  • Be more empathetic by seeing things from another’s perspective to ensure people are heard
  • Learn how to make better decisions by balancing both logic and emotion

A spark is something quite small and, by itself, not very powerful. But a spark has the ability to ignite. An idea is like a spark; alone it is just a set of words, but it too can ignite. A great idea can inspire others to dream bigger. Let us all work together to ignite something greater than ourselves.

Let us all be a Spark of Optimism.
