Emotional Intelligence to Influence and Persuade


Emotions Drive People. People Drive Performance

Emotional intelligence describes the ability to understand one’s own feelings and that of groups, and how these emotions can influence motivation and behaviour. The concepts of Emotional Intelligence have been around since at least the 1900’s, but the term was first introduced by Wayne Payne in 1985.

As a result of the growing acknowledgement by professionals of the importance and relevance of emotions to work outcomes, the research on the topic continued to gain momentum, but it was not until the publication of Daniel Goleman’s best seller Emotional Intelligence: Why It Can Matter More Than IQ that the term became widely accepted by mainstream media. Today, Emotional Intelligence is being recognized as the force that separates successful individuals and organizations from the rest. Organizations and individuals who display a high sense of emotional intelligence are more likely to strife better in times of uncertainty and remain ethical even in the face of difficult and extreme challenges. Emotionally intelligent leaders are able to drive people and the organization they lead effectively and be a source of inspiration to everyone. For employees, developing your higher sense of Emotional Intelligence will allow you to manage stress, think creatively, look at life from a positive perspective and better communicate with your co-workers as well as family members to build meaningful relationships that will be your stepping stone to become successful.

Mr. Nicholas, MHA

:After attending Sandra Daniel’s course on EQ, I discovered a better understanding of my emotions and how to deal with them. The key take-away in her program is learning to better able to communicate my feelings in a more constructive way. Further, I understand how to understand and relate to those I work with. I understand the importance of recognizing the needs, feelings, and responses of those I care about and how it eventually leads to stronger and more fulfilling relationships at work. Thank you, Sandra!:

“An accomplished trainer, Sandra Daniel conducted the course in an entertaining way focusing on the 5 tenets of EQ. One cardinal point I can apply is when I can discern people’s emotions and empathize with their perspective as in this way it is much easier to resolve conflicts or possibly avoid them before they start. What’s more, I will also be better at negotiation due to the very nature of my ability to understand the needs and desires of others. I can identify how it is easier to give people what they want if I can perceive what it is.”
