Learning is part of a jigsaw comprised of many parts and everyone learns in different ways. Whilst these online personal and professional development courses are free for anyone to access over the internet, our full-day open courses are designed with group interaction at their heart. The feedback from our clients tells us that a significant proportion of the learning experience is gained from interacting with their peers during the workshops. If you are located in the United Kingdom and would like to attend one of the full-day open courses to engage in group learning with your ICAEW peers, please visit our upcoming full-day open courses page.

Emotional intelligence for success is one of the free CABA courses developed from research by Dr Hilary Lindsay, which identified career adaptability as a critical element of lifelong learning and professional development.

The research identified 5 attributes within career adaptability - engaging, exploring, experimenting, positive attitude and self-belief. Emotional intelligence for success along with our other professional and personal development courses will show you how to develop these attributes, helping you to shape your career and have the future you want.

What's this course about?

Emotional intelligence is the ability to manage your emotions as well as understand and interpret those of other people. Higher levels of emotional intelligence can help you make better decisions and think more rationally.  

Ground breaking research by Daniel Goleman redefines intelligence and success. In his best selling book "Emotional Intelligence: Why it can matter more than IQ" he asks does IQ define our destiny? Goleman argues that our view of human intelligence is far too narrow, and that our emotions play a major role in thought decision making and individual success.

This course shows how, as an aspect of career adaptability, developing your emotional intelligence can improve your success and wellbeing, both personally and professionally.

You'll explore the fundamental aspects of emotional intelligence, including self-awareness and self-regulation (understanding what drives you and how to regulate your emotions); how to 'read' others by developing your emotional and social 'radar'; plus how to acknowledge, reflect on and learn from your experiences.
