Emotional Competence

Reframing Emotional Intelligence Into Emotional Competence

How This Shift Can Increase Your Effectiveness As A Leader

In this workshop, I propose that leaders focus primarily on emotional competence  instead of emotional intelligence. I clearly outline the differences and clarify why focusing on ‘competence’ will help executives quickly become more effective and perform better as leaders.

This workshop focuses on 15 areas of emotional competence on which leaders can focus in order to enhance their effectiveness and that of their organization.
