This event is for everyone who wants to improve their EQ in a fun and engaging way. What is EI/EQ?  Emotional Intelligence (EI) refers to a distinct combination of emotional and social skills and competencies that influence our overall capability to cope effectively with the demands and pressures of work and life. Why should I develop my EQ?  Research shows that people with higher EQ experience better (mental) health and wellbeing. Our participants have been rewarded with a 20% average increase in EQ & Wellbeing in just 24 hours of in-person work.   According to the World Economic Forum, 10 out of 10 "top skills needed to thrive" in 2020 will fall into the Emotional Intelligence category. Will EQ help me in my career or business?  IQ often gets you in the door for a job, but emotional intelligence (EQ) is what helps you move up. The Carnegie Institute of Technology carried out research that showed that 85% of our financial success was due to skills in “human engineering”, personality, and ability to communicate, negotiate, and lead and only 15% was due to technical ability. In other words people skills or skills related to emotional intelligence are crucial skills. What can I bring into the event? A clear mind! Lunch will be provided.
