Self Awareness, Self-Regulation, Motivation, Empathy, and Social Skills. 

This program will include an Emotional Quotient (EQ) assessment that will be taken by each attendee in advance and measures emotional intelligence, or your ability to sense, understand and effectively apply the power and acumen of emotions to facilitate high levels of collaboration and productivity.

With EQ training, your employees will develop the skills and knowledge to better understand your customers, how to manage their expectations, and ultimately meet their needs.
