Team Furman – Tamara and Charles Furman

Emotional Intelligence

Workshop/Class Overview:  Emotional Intelligence (EI) is an important consideration for anyone who realizes that relationships and the ability to work well with others is critical to individual and group success.  Emotional Intelligence is defined as 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.  Someone’s Emotional Quotient (EQ), which is different from his/her Intelligence Quotient (IQ) reflects one’s overall wellbeing and ability to succeed in a variety of situations.   While Emotional Intelligence isn’t the sole predictor of human performance and development potential, it is proven to be a key indicator in these areas.  Emotional Intelligence is not a static factor.  In fact, one’s Emotional Intelligence can change over time and can be developed in targeted areas.

Learning Objectives:  Gain a general understanding of the 5 scales and 15 sub-scales of Emotional Intelligence and how they impact relationships, individual performance and success, both personally and professionally.
