Course Description

Tangent at Trinity – Masterclass in Emotional Intelligence for Future Leaders

Trinity College Dublin

In a world of constant change, where agility is required of our organisations and of ourselves, Emotional Intelligence can be the key difference between struggling and thriving. Emotional Intelligence (otherwise known as Emotional Quotientor, or EQ) can be defined as the ability to recognise and manage our own emotions and recognise and influence the emotions of others.

This masterclass will help you to understand and develop your EQ. This will help you to recognise your strengths and weaknesses, and increase your self-awareness about your values and biases. It will provide you with tools to increase your resilience with emotionally challenging situations at work. You will gain an understanding of the importance of empathy in developing social awareness and navigating more difficult interpersonal dynamics like conflict and relationship repair.
