Linda Beck delivers Emotional Intelligence Excellence

Emotional intelligence (EI) encompasses the personal, emotional, and social abilities and skills which allow us to succeed in coping with environmental demands and pressures. Understanding your EI will help you identify your strengths as well as areas for potential growth to enhance your personal performance. Research has shown that EI is just as important, if not more important, than IQ for success on the job. Linda Beck has developed a passion for EI as it is an important element of success in all the workshops we offer.

Our workshop will provide participants with the following:

  • an understanding of emotional intelligence
  • an awareness of the importance of developing your emotional intelligence
  • an understanding of the connection between behaviour, emotions and performance
  • strategies for developing your emotional intelligence to achieve personal and business success

Who should attend?

All staff who wish to understand the link between using the “right emotion at the right moment” and achieving success.


The Many Faces of Emotional Intelligence

The ability to respect oneself while understanding and accepting one’s strengths and weaknesses. Self-Regard is often associated with feelings of inner strength and self-confidence.

Self Actualization

Emotional Self-Awareness

Recognizing and understanding one’s own emotions. This includes the ability to differentiate between subtleties in one’s own emotions while understanding the cause of these emotions and the impact they have on the thoughts and actions of oneself and others.


Communicating feelings, beliefs and thoughts openly, and defending personal rights and values in a socially acceptable, non-offensive, and non-destructive manner.


Being self directed and free from emotional dependency on others. Decision-making, planning, and daily tasks are completed autonomously.
