Self-Knowledge, Emotional Intelligence, and Resilience Masterclass


21 Apr 2021




Virtual Classroom



Is your leadership style built upon a foundation of self-awareness and a knowledge of your own emotional intelligence (EQ)? This new practical and highly interactive masterclass, delivered by two exceptional trainers – Jane Fordham and Clara Wilcox - will super-charge your performance and deliver a personalised blueprint for the long-term resilience and wellbeing of yourself and your team, turning wellness into a strategic enabler.

Social science tells us that even the smallest shots of positivity can give someone a competitive edge. Positive mindsets have been proven to transform engagement and business impact. Self-knowledge, EQ and wellbeing in a leader’s toolkit drives impactful communications, an ability to influence, engage and inspire a team, indeed all stakeholders. With this front of mind, workshop attendees will have the chance to complete an online EQ self-assessment in advance and have a 45 minute feedback session with trainer and ‘TEIque’ practitioner, Jane Fordham.
