Emotional Intelligence (EQ) Training - Day One - PM

Goal Purpose - Have, Do, Be

8 Part SMART

Positive emotions are triggered most easily by thinking about our goals for the future.

Therefore, we need to ask people what are their goals for the future.

The role of an emotional manager is to help the team to feel able to achieve goals, the first skill of the leader is to properly set and communicate a valuable goal.

Communication and Body language.

Like it or not, people do judge you partly on appearance.

What they see, is what you’ll get.

Impression management: How you APPEAR to be, will partly determine how you are received.

Posture. Appearance. Touch. Eye contact. Hand and arm gestures. Facial expression. Orientation. Proximity. Scent. Accessories.

Reframe a negative situation into a positive situation.

The Course Training Method

The training method follows this general pattern - the training is very interactive and interesting:

  1. The trainer gives a clear explanation of the point in question with specific examples.
  2. Then, the delegates practice by doing an exercise with each other.
  3. The delegates practice by doing an exercise with the trainer.
  4. All points are supported with full written notes to take away.
  5. Delegates are asked to write down an associated action, for each point made.
    (At the end of the day, we have about twenty such actions, from which the delegates choose six which are the most personally meaningful).

Note: we do not believe in placing people in any situation of embarrassment by demanding that they 'perform' in front of the whole group. So you can relax: come on this course and be at ease; ready to learn new skills!

The content of the course was very good with lots of thought-provoking topics, eg use of words, dealing with conflict, planning and prioritising. There was lots of material to cover but the trainer covered it at a good speed with lots of small sessions of thinking time. Writing our own action plan was a great idea as much more likely to focus on what is important to us.

Emotional Intelligence (EQ) Training Course Summary

Our performance is strongly affected by how we feel, emotionally.

  • Positive emotions; optimism, enthusiasm, commitment and confidence, tend to produce positive results

We want to use that understanding to improve the way we think, talk, act, and respond to various work situations.

Our aim is to improve performance by improving our mode of thinking, feeling, communicating, acting and reacting to events.
