Welcome to our latest course on Emotional Intelligence. Emotional intelligence is an essential aspect of being a good leader, and it is important to understand what it is and why it is important in your career.

Emotional Intelligence is how you understand and influence emotions; both within yourself and other people. Starting from Self Awareness (understanding yourself) going through Self-management (influencing yourself) and Social Awareness (understanding others) we finish at Relationship Management (influencing others).

In this course, we will cover the basics of Emotional Intelligence and its importance in being an effective and compassionate leader. We will also delve into the four quadrants model of Emotional Intelligence which discusses the different aspects of Emotional Intelligence and how they all fit together.

It is important to understand that Emotional Intelligence is not something that can be learned overnight, and it is essential to take baby steps to improve it. That’s why in this course, we will also discuss the best way to order your learning of these skills and where to focus your efforts.

In this introduction to Emotional Intelligence course, we will provide you with a solid foundation to start your journey to becoming a better leader. We hope this course will help you accelerate your career and improve your Emotional Intelligence.
