“If your emotional abilities aren't in hand, if you don't have self-awareness, if you are not able to manage your distressing emotions, if you can't have empathy and have effective relationships, then no matter how smart you are, you are not going to get very far.” - Daniel Goleman.
According to relevant research, emotional intelligence accounts for about 80% of success - the percentage rises to 90% for top leadership positions! EI matters at the individual, group and organizational level.

The workshop is conducted virtually through ZOOM or other available platforms and combines relevant theory with practice, based on the principles of coaching.
