Photo of Professional & Personal Development Courses in DublinLeading with Emotional Intelligence:
toBE’s Leading with Emotional Intelligence Programme is an integrated approach to the development of leaders for optimal performance. This intervention will increase our participants’ awareness of the power of Emotional Intelligence (EQ) while also providing the opportunity to enhance their leadership effectiveness by smarter use of their EQ.

EQ refers to the capacity for recognizing our own feelings and those of others, for motivating ourselves, and for managing emotions in us and in our relationships. It allows managers and leaders to have:

- The trust to build fruitful and productive relationships;
- The resilience to perform under pressure;
- The courage to make decisions;
- The strength to persevere through adversity;
- The vision to create the future with others.

EQ therefore influences how you handle yourself and others in coping with the demands and pressures of your business and personal life. Research shows that EQ is more than twice as important as IQ and technical skills as to what sets star performers apart from the average.

When it comes to technical skill and the core competencies that make a company competitive, the ability to outperform others depends on the relationships of the people involved that ultimately relates to the degree of EQ of its employees and leaders. In addition, there is a ripple effect - leaders possessing EQ will create an effective work climate that will further develop EQ in other parts of their organization. This programme uses the original and most validated EQ tool: the BarOn EQ-i.

Confident Assertiveness:

toBE assertive is not just a difficulty for some – everybody ‘suffers’ from it somewhere. Do you often find that others coerce you into thinking their way? Is it difficult for you to express your positive or negative feelings openly and honestly? Do you sometimes lose control and become angry at others who don't warrant it? A "yes" answer to any of the above questions may be an expression of "lack of assertiveness."

Assertiveness is the ability to express yourself and your rights without violating the rights of others. It is appropriately direct, open, and honest communication which is self-enhancing and expressive. Being assertive will allow you to feel self-confident and will generally gain you the respect of your peers and friends. It will improve your decision-making ability and possibly your chances of getting what you really want from life.
This course, based on positive psychology, gives you the insights and techniques to be confidently assertive in the most daunting experiences. It is run by Petra Costigan-Oorthuijs
