 What is Emotional Intelligence?

Emotional intelligence is a set of emotional and social skills that influence the way we perceive and express ourselves, develop and maintain social relationships, cope with challenges and use emotional information in an effective and meaningful way.

Why is Emotional Intelligence important (for Leaders)?

The secret weapon of impactful communication, strong stress management, healthy assertiveness or good leadership is mainly understanding and managing your own emotions and those of others. The term emotional intelligence originated a long time ago from scientific research into social intelligence (Thorndike, - 1920 & Walker and Foley - 1973). Science, and psychology in particular, has long sought the origins of success and happiness in individuals. There was a suspicion that successes were not achieved solely through one's cognitive ability.

And how is Emotional Intelligence linked to good leadership? In addition to the research supporting this report, fifteen years of research has shown that leaders tend to score higher in Emotional Intelligence than the general population. Also, many professionals find it easier to focus on improving a few specific skills that underlie broader leadership competencies, making the EQ-i 2.0® and EQ 360® subscales the perfect building blocks to reaching your leadership potential.

"One of my Managers attended your Emotional Intelligence Masterclass to improve social skills. The effect of the course was profound and resulted in a noticeable transformation. After the training, this colleague demonstrated an improved people-oriented focus and this provided her with a new role in which she could apply the EQ concepts and practices she had learned.”

Erik V. | CIO

"With a diverse marketing team of 15 people, spread across Europe (Belgium, the Netherlands, France, Germany, Italy), Covid-19 and the lock down hit hard. In 2021 we decided it was time to focus on team cohesion, communication and EQ. Mentorprise took the entire team on a six-month journey with group sessions and individual sessions."
