Emotional Intelligence: Techniques to Increase Team Engagement & Results
Canadian Management Centre
Emotions affect people twenty-four hours a day regardless of where they find themselves. It goes without saying that emotions have a significant impact on how people behave and communicate, as individuals and as members of groups.
Emotional intelligence (EI) is the intelligence that people have when they are in tune with their emotions and are also aware of what people around them are feeling. People with emotional awareness then use this knowledge as they manage their own behaviours and as they interact with others.
Research indicates that people with a high degree of EI are more likely to be successful. They have a knack for communicating effectively and building relationships that allow them to draw on the abilities of the people around them.

" There was lots of interaction. The small group allowed more time for in depth discussions. "
" The instructor was very knowledgeable and provided information that could be put to use immediately. Also, questions were answered in a direct manner, with assistance from the group. "
" I liked the opportunity to interact with other project managers. "
" I enjoyed the pace, the knowledge and the background of the instructor and the fact that he shared his experiences. The size of the group was small. Also, the course helped identify where the gaps are in our succession planning program. "
" The instructor was very energetic & dynamic. She provided excellent examples and skillfully directed the discussions. She also has a wonderful sense of humour. "
