Professional Presentation Skills

Many people fear public speaking, yet many business professionals are required to deliver powerful presentations as part of their jobs. This could include presenting a business idea to gain budget approval, the progress of a project or a business unit’s status. Whether you are presenting to an individual, a small group or a large audience, it is not knowing just what to do but being able to actually do it.

Emotional Intelligence in the Workplace

Emotional intelligence or EQ, is the ability to be aware of and to manage emotions and relationships. It’s a pivotal factor in personal and professional success. IQ will get you in the door, but it is your EQ, your ability to connect with others and manage the emotions of yourself and others, that will determine how successful you are in life. We have all worked with and listened to brilliant people. Some of them were great and… well, some were not so great. The mean and the meek and all those in between can teach us more than they realize. When we look at the truly extraordinary people who inspire and make a difference you will see that they do this by connecting with people at a personal and emotional level. What differentiated them was not their IQ but their EQ – their emotional intelligence.
