Emotional Intelligence (EQ) is becoming a critical skill for leaders.  Research has shown that 90% of high performers possess high emotional intelligence.  Traditionally, many managers have been promoted because of their technical/functional skills and for their dedicated service to their organisations.  However, with a newer generation of younger and more diversified group of employees, many of these leaders who are not trained in EQ skills, face difficulties in engaging and motivating their employees to perform. 

Emotional Intelligence LeadershipEmotional Intelligence is the ability to understand and manage our own emotions, and the emotions of others around us.  It is a set of emotional, social and relational skills that guides the way we perceive, understand and express ourselves; connect with others; manage interpersonal communication and cope with challenges.  EQ skills can be learned, developed and augmented.

Emotional Intelligent Leaders are fully aware of their own emotions and are able to maintain composure and presence in challenging situations.  They are able to articulate their thoughts, recognise the emotions in others and to provide feedback.  High EQ leaders are able to coach, facilitate change and resolve conflicts among team members leading to greater team performance.

This is a blended learning course which consist of:-

  • Pre-course self-paced eLearning session,
  • EIQ2 self-assessment survey and
  • 2 days facilitated classroom session cum assessment

It is an advanced follow-on module to our popular “Coaching for Performance and Capability Development” workshop which covers the foundation of Leadership Coaching.  Unlike other similar Emotional Intelligence courses in the market, this course has been contextualised by integrating the International Coaching Federation, ICF Coaching Competencies for leaders to coach at the transformational level.



The objective of this course is to equip the learner with the emotional competence to manage oneself and to coach and lead others.  The ability to express and control our own emotions is important, and so is our ability to understand, interpret, and respond to the emotions of others.  The ultimate goal is to achieve the organisational goals by building relationship, motivating teams, enabling change and managing conflicts through these practical EQ Leadership Coaching skills.

This is the second of a series of 4 modules leading to the Certified Performance Leadership Coach (CPLC) certification program.
