Communicating with Impact

Anyone can become angry - that is easy. But to be angry with the right person, to the right degree, at the right time, for the right purpose, and in the right way - that is not easy." Aristotle.


Communicating with Impact
Hotel Russell
Russell Square, London WC1B 5BE


If there was ever a time for business people to learn the fine art of emotional intelligence, it is now. The concept of emotional intelligence has had a strong impact in a number of areas, including the business world. Many companies now mandate emotional intelligence training and utilize EQ tests as part of their recruitment process. Research has found that individuals with strong leadership potential also tend to be more emotionally intelligent, suggesting that a high EQ is an important quality for business leaders and managers to have. The Harvard Business Review has hailed emotional intelligence as “a ground-breaking, paradigm-shattering idea - one of the most influential business ideas in recent years”

So you might be wondering, if emotional intelligence is so important, can it be taught or strengthened? During this session, participants will learn more about exactly what emotional intelligence is, how it works, and how it is measured. We will focus on the 4 main characteristics of EQ:

Perceiving Emotions: The first step in understanding emotions is to accurately perceive them. We will explore how to build and maintain rapport through body language and the concept of matching energy.

Reasoning With Emotions: The next step involves using emotions to promote thinking and cognitive activity. A session on how to ask for what we want, how to say no, how to manage challenging conversations.

Understanding Emotions: Do others say that you have great insight into your own and others’ feelings? Or do you find yourself mystified by others’ actions and surprised to learn what they are feeling? We will look at how to identify a person’s hidden unmet needs.

Managing Emotions: The ability to manage emotions effectively is a key part of emotional intelligence. Regulating emotions, responding appropriately and responding to the emotions of others are all important aspect of emotional management. We will conclude with a session on how to use emotions without being emotional.
