Valentine’s Day is not just about romance - it’s a good time for leaders to consider their relationships with the colleagues with whom they share their working lives, according to the e-learning company Learning Heroes.
The company says that improving our emotional intelligence is key to success inboth a personal and professional capacity, and one of the key factors in job performance. Now it is offering learning and development managers a free Emotional Intelligence course to celebrate Valentine’s Day.
“We associate emotions with romantic love and not the workplace - yet emotions are always present at work, even if we don’t always realise it,” says the company’s CEO Adam Kara. “To survive as a modern leader, we need the skills to recognise and manage our feelings and those of other people.
“Research shows emotional intelligence is perhaps the most important factor in job performance and life success and is even considered more important than IQ.However, unlike IQ, emotional intelligence is something we can work on and improve.”
Learning Heroes’ Emotional Intelligence course was developed on demand from clients and has become one of its most popular courses.
Adam Kara adds: “When I tell learning and development managers that we have an emotional intelligence course they chuckle and say, ‘We need some of that here!’
“It’s certainly a hot topic, so on Valentine’s Day, there’s no better time to share the love and learn how to improve our personal and professional relationships.”
The offer is open until 5pm on Friday 17th Feb - visit the Learning Heroes site http://www.learningheroes.com/emotional-intelligence/
