About this Course

Whether you’re a manager or an individual contributor, a seasoned professional or new, emotional intelligence is key to career success. Emotional intelligence is the ability to identify and manage your emotions and understand the behavior of others. In the workplace, it’s considered a “soft skill” that can help you mobilize people to achieve business goals. According to LinkedIn’s 2019 Talent Trend report, soft skills are increasingly important in landing a job — and being successful.

This course is designed to illustrate the underlying thinking patterns that drive behavior and teach techniques to help you have greater control over your actions. First, you'll learn to identify your thinking patterns and associated behaviors, then we'll focus on developing more effective responses. Through this process, you'll improve skills such as communication, decision making, influence and collaboration so you and those you work with can thrive.
