Level II Developing EQ
This next phase of EQ skill development builds sophistication in personal and social competence. Ten hours of curriculum in 5 modules develop deeper understanding and advanced skills practice. Over 2 days, learn how to facilitate this program, expanding your offerings and expertise.

Phase 2 of Emotional Intelligence Skill Development:
Advanced Learning and Skills Practice

As a learning and development professional, you know that developing new skills in others doesn't happen overnight. Participants need several touch points over time where past knowledge is built upon, new connections are created, and real-life practice opportunities are made available. Developing Emotional Intelligence was created to follow Discovering Emotional Intelligence with this very goal in mind.

Developing Emotional Intelligence will push your participants to think in new ways about how their emotions operate day-to-day, considering the moments at work and in life that often go undetected or dismissed—and unresolved. Through the latest in adult learning techniques, Developing Emotional Intelligence will facilitate conversations, self-reflection, thinking, and skill practice to build savvier approaches to dealing with daily hassles and big challenges.

In 2 days (immediately following Level I: Discovering Emotional Intelligence), you will learn how to deliver the program and acquire the very best practices for how to use the modules to facilitate skill development. With your certification, you will receive 10 hours of advanced curriculum and learn about several proven design options in 1-day, half-day, and 2-hour formats, and identify the option that will best fit your needs. Learn how to access and use TalentSmart's participant learning kits, our license to use Hollywood movies clips selected for deeper discussions in your sessions, and a complimentary set of TalentSmart assessments for you to experience or share with your organization (a $700 value).
