In a nutshell, it's what makes you more successful!
Social and Emotional Intelligence is a form of intelligence that drives success in work and in life and in our business and personal relationships. It is the most important factor in developing leadership, workplace effectiveness, happiness and well-being.
It is about being aware of ourselves and others, and using that awareness to manage ourselves (our behavior and responses to stressful or challenging situations), and manage our relationships with others.
Social and emotional intelligence (S+EI or sometimes referred to as EI or EQ) encompasses many skill sets, including:
Unfortunately, we see it most when it’s lacking – think of the boss who explodes when a deadline is missed, the co-worker whom no one trusts, or the salesperson who launches into his pitch and fails to ask thoughtful questions to determine the prospect's needs. These people are limited by their lack of S+EI skills.
The good news? Unlike IQ which remains relatively constant, S+EI (or EQ) can be learned and strengthened throughout our lives. It’s never too late to add these essential skills to your career strategy or to improve your organizational culture and effectiveness by enhancing your team’s S+EI.
Ward Leadership offers a variety of specialized assessment, coaching and training services to
increase emotional intelligence. Scroll down for details.
The Business Case for Social and Emotional Intelligence (S+EI)
Consider these findings prepared for the Consortium for Research on Emotional Intelligence in Organizations
by Cary Cherniss, Ph.D. of Rutgers University:
Research shows that high S+EI in an organization greatly affects business outcomes:
“People with positive emotions earn 33% more over their lifetimes.”
Laura Belston, PhD, Institute for Social and Emotional Intelligence

Social and Emotional Intelligence Coaching
S+EI coaching can help you or your organization develop and leverage the so-called “soft skills” that lead to improved business outcomes and highly successful career trajectories.
Did you know?
According to a 2005 study by the Center for Creative Leadership, “The top reasons careers are derailed are related to a lack of social and emotional intelligence(S+EI).” Knowledge and technical skills may get you in the door, but alone they are not enough.
What leadership skills would you like to improve?
“Emotional intelligence is much more powerful than IQ in determining who emerges as a leader. IQ is a threshold competence. You need it, but it doesn’t make you a star. Emotional intelligence can.”
Warren Bennis, author of On Becoming a Leader
Research has proven that the fastest way to enhance S+EI skills is through coaching.

In addition to the coaching program, Ward Leadership also offers a variety of lively, interactive, and highly informative training modules in social and emotional intelligence (S+EI or “EQ” for short).
Half-day The half-day workshop will focus on Social + Emotional Intelligence and provide participants with their very own Social + Emotional Intelligence Profile™ so they can identify their strengths and potential vulnerabilities in S+EI. It covers an introduction to the topic, a review of the 26 S+EI competencies, a segment on the “so-what question” (or the business and health case for social + emotional intelligence), as well as an overview of the assessment, what it measures and what it means.
Full day If S+EI training is a new initiative in your organization, this workshop that will include all components of the half-day workshop as well as competency modules customized for your team.
For teams/organizations that have already completed the half-day workshop, we will focus wholly on development of specific additional competencies that have been identified as areas for growth (i.e. effective communication, listening skills, stress management, constructive conflict, behavioral self-management).
One hour breakfast or “lunch and learn” workshops
