Emotional Intelligence (EI) Development

Success in today’s fast paced, rapidly changing world requires more than intellectual or technical skills. Organizations want self-confident, highly motivated employees that can thrive in chaos and lead their organizations to higher levels of performance.

Emotional intelligence (EI) has emerged as a critical competence for career and organizational success. EI defines how we manage ourselves and how we relate to others. Emotional intelligence exists at the core of who we are as human beings. In fact, we are ‘hardwired’ for emotions – they drive everything we do.

The good news is that EI can be developed!

Crescendo Inc., is pleased to offer Assessment, Coaching and Training to support Emotional Intelligence Development.
