Agile EQ

Agile EQ

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.

So why is emotional intelligence important? It's all about self-awareness and self-management. Research shows that people with a higher EQ (emotional quotient) find more success in their work and personal lives. These are individuals who "pick up" on the emotions of others and use that awareness to better manage their interactions with others, resulting in more positive outcomes.

Agile EQ utilizes Everything DiSC, providing participants with techniques to improve self-awareness and awareness of others, to be more effective in the workplace and contribute to a positive workplace culture. Agile EQ helps participants develop their emotional intelligence and adopt the optimal response in various situations.
