THE DARK SIDE OF EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE
Emotional intelligence (EQ) skills are more often a more significant determinant of success than cognitive intelligence (IQ). Your work ethic, your attitude, your communication, interpersonal, conflict management, and stress management skills are some of the emotional intelligence skills that are crucial for career success. However, like anything, too much of a good thing can be too much.
Being too high in one competency may come at the detriment of another capability. For instance, too much self-regard leads to overconfidence, narcissism, and an inability to admit mistakes. The key here is to learn to recognize when one of your strengths may become a hindrance to your success.
In this workshop, we will highlight the dark side of all 15 emotional intelligence competencies, and you will walk away, knowing how to better balance your soft skills for optimal results. You will learn how to create balance within your EI skills so that your strengths continue to be just that.
The more well-balanced your EQ scores are the better your emotional and social functioning in the world. Ultimately, you will be more productive, a better performer, and a happier person at work and in life.
