Emotional Intelligence (EQ)

As we have seen this past year, increased complexity demands increased capability. Leaders today not only need to show logistical knowhow when driving teams, they need to show empathy and compassion to win people over. Ironically, seeing how today’s increasingly remote workspace has become the new norm, EQ has become an ever-increasing essential element one needs to achieve continuing success.

The Goodman Group’s Emotional Intelligence (EQ) Seminar is designed to help maximize soft skills. It will help instill the ethos that a more reflective approach, one increasing understanding, and responsiveness, will help ease team anxiety and stress. The program’s practical people skills approach, when combined with business acumen, will become an essential toolkit for any aspiring leader to master.
