Emotional Intelligence for Leaders


Emotional Intelligence describes the ability to monitor one’s own and other people’s emotions, to discriminate between different emotions and label them appropriately, and to use emotional information to guide thinking and behavior.

For leaders, it also provides great insight into how emotions influence motivation and performance. In this course, leaders will explore the concepts of emotional intelligence and mindfulness, how they interrelate, and how to apply this knowledge to focus on executing your mission, and deliver business results. You will learn what emotional intelligence is, work on developing your “EQ”, and apply emotional intelligence principles and practices to leadership and management situations.

The course meets the requirements of Government Code 19995.4(c) of 20-hours of continuing professional education biennially for all levels of supervisors in State service.
