The 2017 World Economic forum cited Emotional Intelligence as the fourth most necessary skill required for people and businesses to succeed. Over time it has been viewed as “soft and fluffy stuff”, however, now the research shows it has hard consequences.

This program is grounded in contemporary neuroscience and psychology to help participants develop and explore their emotional intelligence and apply it at work. This discipline provides a context for each module of the program.
