Developing leaders into great leaders is a complex task for organisations and HR departments.

 

It’s extremely challenging for organisations or HR departments to support their leadership when they can’t find the right program or pinpoint why a previous training failed to deliver.

Their leadership doesn’t feel supported to do their best work and often struggle with social and self-awareness issues.

It flows down to other parts of the company, affecting interpersonal relationships, achievements and motivation.

Today’s organisations need empathetic and emotionally aware leaders. Emotional Intelligence (EI or EQ) is that intangible ‘something’ that makes a leader inspirational and worthy of following.

Neuroleadership and EI for better leadership

At EQ Academy, we combine Neuroleadership and Emotional Intelligence to create coaching, training, workshops and courses for your leaders.

It’s about understanding the brain and using science-based methods to rewire it and create new ways of working and thinking. EI programs can help boost job performance by 12 per cent.

How Emotional Intelligence (EI) benefits your organisation

Having EQ programs in place can help you attract a better calibre of employees aligned with your company’s values.

It helps companies:

  • predict future job performance
  • hire the right people for leadership positions
  • create a motivated workplace leading to a profitable bottom line
