Emotional Intelligence Workshop in Fortune 500 Teams
The Emotional Intelligence training workshop in Chicago, Illinois teaches critical skills for personal and professional success. Approximately 90% of all high performers in the workplace have high Emotional Intelligence (also known as EI or EQ).
Emotional Intelligence Predicts Job Success
Research shows that although IQ and a strong resume may get you the job interview. But those with high EQ are more successful in a team, leadership, and an organization.
Employers Value EQ Over IQ
Emotional Intelligence is more important for job success than IQ, experience, or technical ability for any job at any level in the organization. Studies across industries show that Emotional Intelligence predicts job performance 2 to 1 over any other job competency in the workplace. People with higher EQ are better able to remain calm under pressure. They resolve conflict effectively and demonstrate empathy toward their coworkers.
What Is Emotional Intelligence?

The 4 Core Emotional Intelligence Skills
Like four pieces of a puzzle, all four EQ skills are interconnected with each other. First made famous by Daniel Goleman, the EQ assessment consists of personal and social competence in four core areas: (1) Self-Awareness, (2) Self-Management, (3) Social-Awareness, and (4) Social Management.
Focus on YOU. Focus on OTHERS.
- Self-Awareness is your ability to accurately perceive your strengths, limitations, and emotions and be able to monitor them in real-time. This includes staying aware of how you respond in challenging situations and with difficult people. Self-awareness displays both a healthy self-confidence and a humility that is open to feedback and the perspectives of others.
- Self-Management is your ability to act upon and effectively manage your self-awareness. You can only control what you can see. Self-management demonstrates emotional self-control. It also takes the initiative to develop your strengths, manage your weaknesses, handle stress, display healthy assertiveness, and positively direct your behavior and emotional reactions in challenging situations and people.
- Social-Awareness is your ability to connect with individuals through empathy. Many times, this means being able to read what people are feeling behind what they are saying (or not saying) even though you might not think or feel the same way they do. This skill helps us connect with people and build trust in our relationships. Social-awareness allows us to be able to read the “emotional mood of the room.”
- Social Management is your ability to use your emotional awareness (personal and social) to manage relational interactions with others successfully. Strong social management allows us to relate with others in stressful situations but with a non-anxious presence. Skills like managing difficult conversations, using clear and direct communication, and providing timely and constructive feedback.
