Emotional Intelligence: Aligning Skill, Behaviour and Emotion
Using Mental and Verbal Agility to Manage Yourself and Others
How well do you know yourself?
How well do you manage your emotions?
Do you possess the mental and verbal agility to influence those around you?
Having these skills are crucial in life and because of the environment we are now in, we fundamentally believe that we have the responsibility to produce an EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE course with the right focus. This means truly addressing the challenges that exist in the workplace in a way that will create IMPACT.
This means developing people, inspiring change and transforming work environments where processes are clearer, communication is more respectful and people are more human.
Emotional intelligence (EI) is a measurement of a person’s ability to monitor his or her emotions, to cope with pressures and demands, and to control his or her thoughts and actions
It is different from Intelligence Quotient (IQ), which is a measure of relative intelligence determined by a standardized test.
EI is an assessment of your ability to think and reason. EI is broken into five (5) distinct parts which are: Self Awareness, Self Regulation, Motivation, Empathy and Social Skills. All of these are important for daily functioning and are major players in achieving both our short and long-term goals. It also helps us to create the right habits and develop the courage to make the right choices.
In this highly interactive 2-day session, participants will learn how to better manage themselves through self-awareness and more effectively influence others through effective social awareness and relationship management. Follow-up sessions will add support to all components of Emotional Intelligence in terms of how it aligns with actual performance.

“I went into this with a great deal of hesitancy and unwillingness to engage but Tony’s demeanor, delivery and positive attitude became so intoxicating that it was difficult to withdraw. I honestly feel more aware of my emotional cues to certain situations and was given insight and practical guidelines on how to deal with different situations and people. I would highly recommend this workshop to anyone and would like to have it administered with some of my NGO colleagues.”
