Workshop description

Training for trainers and team leaders

Emotional intelligence is the capacity for recognizing our own feelings and feelings of others, for motivating ourselves and for managing emotions in ourselves and in our relationships. The concept of emotional intelligence is well known: every leader, communicator, trainer and every person who manages workgroups knows the importance of the emotional dimension in the processes of motivation and learning. But how to handle emotions, starting from one’s own and especially in challenging situations, is not so obvious. In order to be effective in their work and advance learning and working groups, more and more professionals need to develop personal and social competences. The course is aimed to enhance these competences and help implementing the development of processes that lead to self- and social awareness and management.


Participants will use practical exercises and tools in the following ways:

  • picturing the current situation of the Organization or individuals (skills, manpower, organization and personal effectiveness, adequacy of available resources)
  • helping to maximize their ability to clarify the clients’ and team vision, to deal with the problematic symptoms from another perspective or other important issues
  • designing the necessary actions for the company or the individual to achieve their objectives or the desired issues
  • developing their positive perspective
  • becoming familiar with A.L. methodology

This workshop is highly experiential and participative. It consists of short theoretical inputs, concrete exercises, and group discussions. Reflecting upon and applying each tool to your real-life cases from your everyday work, you will practise and gain new insights into your current dilemmas.
