Corporate EQ Program

Emotional Intelligence training for employees
Does this sound familiar?

Teams are put together hastily to complete certain projects, without much thought on how members will get along with each other.

Team dynamics often interfere with work goals and emotions can run high when personalities clash affecting productivity and project outcomes.

Research shows that people work well individually but are unaware of how to work together in a team. By developing your employees’ emotional intelligence levels, it leads to a stronger, high functioning team. EI gives you a competitive edge over your competitors who struggle with lower performing teams.

Corporate EQ Program 

Do you want to develop first-class teams that perform at high levels? Teams that:

  • communicate openly with each other
  • resolve conflicts quickly
  • work together to achieve shared goals
  • maximise individual strengths so that every member works at their best
  • are loyal and committed to your organisation
  • give you a competitive edge over your competitors

Emotional Intelligence (EI) teaches team members how to handle their and others’ emotions in a healthier manner. EI also helps team members feel comfortable to voice their opinions, know how to treat each other with respect and resolve conflicts quickly.

Managers and/or their teams

Corporate EQ Program Outline

The Corporate EQ Program covers emotional intelligence for teams in the workplace. It runs over 12 months, with a 2-hour in-person session monthly with the trainer. Participants will also need to complete an extra 2 hours of external work as part of the program.
