Emotional intelligence has been identified as a fundamental leadership skill in the 2020's.
Using emotional information appropriately builds relations and supports problem solving. Decisions are confidently made that are ethical, authentic and empathetic.
Critical thinking refers to the ability to analyse information objectively and make a reasoned judgement. Good critical thinking involves the evaluation of sources, such as data, facts, observable phenomena, and research findings.
Critical thinking abilities are among the most sought-after skills in almost every industry and workplace.
Often thinking is considered separate from emotions, but good critical thinkers use emotional intelligence to draw reasonable conclusions from a range of information sources determining what is useful and what isn’t.
This course explores the connection between critical thinking skills and emotional intelligence skills. Combining the two makes for a powerful combination.
Although the course is based on scientific research, it does not go into detail around the research. We explore the concepts in a straightforward, pragmatic manner to understand what they mean and how they be applied in the workplace.
This is not an introductory course on emotional intelligence. There are many courses by a range of good instructors that explain the some of the fundamental basics of emotional intelligence.
