Course Agenda

1. Theory: Introducing the Idea of Emotional Intelligence

Charlotte will start by discussing the importance of emotional IQ, particularly when compared to more traditional forms of intelligence. She’ll go on to define the two domains of emotional intelligence: personal and social.

Once the definitions are established, Charlotte will discuss how our emotions cause reactions within those domains. She will then introduce the concept of the Emotional Intelligence Pyramid and how we, as individuals, progress through it.

Duration: 8 minutes

2. Discussion: What Are The Behaviors of Emotional Intelligence?

The first discussion is designed to identify behaviors that demonstrate high and low emotional intelligence. Your team will collaborate to specific five high EQ behaviors and five low EQ ones.

Duration: 15 minutes

3. Theory: Learning the THINK Method to Enhance Emotional Intelligence

Following the discussion, Charlotte will return with a list of her own high and low EQ behaviors. She will then introduce the THINK method. This is a procedure employees can use to assess if they’re contributing to the team in an emotionally intelligent way.

Duration: 5 minutes

4. Discussion: Putting the THINK Method to Work 

The second discussion will present a fictional scenario in which the subject’s level of emotional intelligence will produce very different outcomes. Charlotte will then ask the team to use the THINK method to determine the most appropriate response. 

Duration: 10 minutes

5. Theory: Understanding Different Types of Reactions 

After the discussion, Charlotte will provide a quick debriefing. Simultaneously, she will explain how one’s self-awareness, self-regulation, and social awareness will dominate the suggested reactions. 

Duration: 2 minutes

6. Discussion: What Three Habits Can Our Team Implement to Nurture The Four Components of Emotional Intelligence?

The final discussion will pose a question to the group, aimed at identifying three actionable habits that the team can immediately begin demonstrating. These habits are intended to be achievable and practical.

Duration: 5 minutes

7. Theory: Wrapping up the Session

At the end of the session, Charlotte will revisit the main concepts behind emotional intelligence, including the THINK acronym and the four components of EQ.

Why not share your feedback with us, allowing us to further enhance your team's development.
This team course really demonstrated how emotional intelligence affects the workplace. As Charlotte explained the various concepts, everyone on the team was pointing to one another because we could all identify times we’d done something similar. This was really an eye-opening experience and I think the benefits will be clear as day."

What is included with each Teamioed team course?

Each Teamioed soft skills training session consists of a 45-minute to 1-hour guided learning experience. Leaders, managers or individual contributors are provided with a course and summary guide to help them direct each team learning and development exercise. However, our knowledgeable Teamioed virtual coaches will handle most of the work, so there’s minimal preparation involved. Simply gather the team together and get ready to learn!

Does Teamioed provide coaching tips or resources for managers? 

We do! Leaders, managers or team leaders are provided with an in-depth guide covering each team eLearning course. This lets them better understand what we’ll cover in the soft skills training experiences. It also gives them valuable information on how to contribute to the Learning experience and development activities.
