EQ Workshop

Emotional Intelligence is the new yardstick for success in the business world and your life!

Emotional Intelligence is an array of non-cognitive abilities, competencies and skills that influence one’s ability to succeed in coping with the environmental demands and pressures. Emotional intelligence thus refers to the non-cognitive dimensions of intelligence such as personal, social, emotional, innovative, and survival skills.

As organisations diminish in size, the people who remain behind are more accountable and more visible. These people have to interact more widely with peers, subordinates and customers. They not only have to become more adept at handling relationships, but must also be able to deal with feelings and influence those around them in a more efficient manner.  

The multi-cultural work climate in South Africa adds to the dynamics involved in co-ordinating working relationships. In short, emotional intelligence has never been more important for South African workers than it is right now. It is the single biggest factor that will determine success in a multicultural work environment.

Research Facts

  • Emotional Intelligence accounts for 85% of leadership success.

  • 18 of 21 competencies needed for top performing leaders are EI competencies.

  • Employees who developed EI are up to 12 times more productive than their low EQ counterparts.

  • 63% reduction in sales staff turnover for those who attended EI courses.

  • 74% of top performers were high in EQ while only 24% of low performers were high in EI.

  • Emotional intelligence explained nearly 60% of job performance across companies in the study.

Research clearly shows that Emotional Intelligence is an overwhelmingly more important and critical factor determining employee success than IQ.

The approach is scientific and holistic

Four components make up the approach for developing Emotional Intelligence and they are facilitated over a three day process:

  1. Assessment: Identification of each delegate’s stressors including monitoring of the heart rate variability and the physiological levels of stress.

  2. Feedback: Group feedback about psychological barriers restricting optimal stress management.

  3. Training: The latest research on Emotional Intelligence is presented with the emphasis on practical techniques for regulating emotions, growing positivity and developing self-esteem.

  4. Development Plans: Each individual makes a commitment to a 21-day contract and is assigned a buddy to assist the transition into daily functioning and promote prolonged implementation.
