Emotional Intelligence

Emotions and how we handle them determine our success or failure in business interactions.

  • Is worry, overthinking and stress in the way of your and your business’ success?
  • Are subtle patterns of anger, frustration or impatience corrupting your ability to create your desired results?
  • Are emotions the reason for lacking rapport and relationship quality?
  • Could you use positive emotions more to engage, inspire and empower yourself and others in your working environment?

85% of our personal & professional success is determined by the way we handle ourselves, remain inspired and cheerful aand engage others. The quality of our relationships and performance is directly linked to our level of Emotional Intelligence.

Theory and background of IQ and EQ and Emotional Intelligence

The EQ concept argues that IQ, or conventional intelligence, is too narrow; that there are wider areas of Emotional Intelligence that dictate and enable how successful we are. Success requires more than IQ (Intelligence Quotient), which has tended to be the traditional measure of intelligence, ignoring essential behavioural and character elements. We’ve all met people who are academically brilliant and yet are socially and inter-personally inept. And we know that despite possessing a high IQ rating, success does not automatically follow.

Emotional Intelligence – EQ – is a relatively recent behavioural model, rising to prominence with Daniel Goleman’s 1995 Book called ‘Emotional Intelligence’. The early Emotional Intelligence theory was originally developed during the 1970s and 80s by the work and writings of psychologists Howard Gardner (Harvard), Peter Salovey (Yale) and John ‘Jack’ Mayer (New Hampshire). Emotional Intelligence is increasingly relevant to organizational development and developing people, because the EQ principles provide a new way to understand and assess people’s behaviours, management styles, attitudes, interpersonal skills, and potential. Emotional Intelligence is an important consideration in human resources planning, job profiling, recruitment interviewing and selection, management development, customer relations and customer service, and more.

Build all Four Attributes of Emotional Intelligence:

Self Awareness:You recognize your own emotions and how they affect your thoughts and behavior, know your strengths and weaknesses, and have self-confidence.
Self Management:You’re able to control impulsive feelings and behaviors, manage your emotions in healthy ways, take initiative, follow through on commitments, and adapt to changing circumstances.
Social Awareness:You can understand the emotions, needs, and concerns of other people, pick up on emotional cues, feel comfortable socially, and recognize the power dynamics in a group or organization.
Relationship Management:You know how to develop and maintain good relationships, communicate clearly, inspire and influence others, work well in a team, and manage conflict.

At Conscious Solutions we offer a program on Emotional Intelligence which empowers participants to meet and transform emotions at the onset. The first step is for everyone to take responsibility for their emotions in a way that eliminates assumptions and accusations.Professional relationships that are based on Emotional Intelligence are more effective and successful and empower everyone to be more of who they truly are.

Emotional intelligence (EQ) is the ability to identify, use, understand, and manage emotions in positive ways to relieve stress, communicate effectively, empathize with others, overcome challenges, and defuse conflict. Emotional intelligence impacts many different aspects of your daily life, such as the way you behave and the way you interact with others. If you have high emotional intelligence you are able to recognize your own emotional state and the emotional states of others, and engage with people in a way that draws them to you. You can use this understanding of emotions to relate better to other people, form healthier relationships, achieve greater success at work, and lead a more fulfilling life.

Unlike other programs and online courses where you mainly receive concepts and lectures this program is hands-on. Conscious Solutions uses visual and tangible training tools to engage your people in an alive, fun and entertaining fashion. At Conscious Solutions we incorporate Emotional Intelligence into our training programs to ensure your people gain more control over their emotions and the emotions of others.

Business evaluations and specific interview processes help to objectively decide when, how and for which of your groups our programs will create greatest return.

Sample training results:

A group of 20 managers in a large hospital lost each up to three hours a day due to ineffective communication, poor meeting preparation and having to solve conflicts rather than preventing them. After applying the skills from the Conscious Solutions program they reported having recovered more than two hours a day. The ripple effects on all team members were tremendous.

Can you calculate how much time and money your organization will gain when all program participants will produce two hours’ worth of more work every day?
