Seminar Description

Topics: Communication and Presentation Skills, Leadership Development

Sub-Topics: Conflict Management, Influencing

Have you ever wondered why some people who don't have as much knowledge and experience seem to be more successful than those who do? They tend to get promoted more often, receive better job opportunities and are happier in all areas of life, both at work and at home. This is because emotional intelligence affects our success in every single thing we do.
As a project management professional, your emotional intelligence (EQ) determines your ability to effectively lead yourself and to influence others. It is the single greatest contributor to your personal excellence and leadership. Your level of EQ will go a long way to determine your success. By learning to maximize your emotional intelligence skills, you can find that unique blend of reason and feeling to achieve the greatest results on your projects and programs.
As a project and/or program manager, this seminar will start you on the path of cultivating the necessary emotional and social skills that will motivate your teams to deliver excellent results. Prior to the seminar, you will take the world-renowned EQ-i 2.0 emotional intelligence talent assessment and receive a personalized report. With your report in hand, this interactive seminar will help you evaluate where you are, and proffer specific behaviors and skills that will lead to increased EQ. As your level of emotional intelligence increases, you begin to align yourself with opportunities that will give you success and increase your effectiveness in every areas of life.
"Research shows that Emotional intelligence skills account for 58% of your success as a project manager. What are you doing to develop yours?" - Sunny Faronbi
Seminar participants will be asked to complete EQ-i2.0 Emotional Intelligence Assessment and will work with their results during the session. Participants will be expected to complete the assessment approximately one week prior to the session, and will be contacted by their instructor with further instructions.
The cost of this assessment is $125.00 and is included in your seminar fee. The assessment cost is non-refundable.
