Emotional Intelligence: The Foundation of a High-Performance Culture
Motivated business professionals are looking for every edge to be successful in the workplace. Naturally, many develop expertise in technical or task-oriented skills in order to enhance their careers. However, those who have a high level of awareness and control over their emotions, and use their emotions to connect with others and develop positive relationships, will find even greater success in the workplace.
This soft skill is known as emotional intelligence, and it is an essential element in the business world, especially in high-stress environments. If you are unable to control your emotions, they can preoccupy your thoughts and interfere with your ability to evaluate a situation objectively. On the contrary, knowing what triggers your emotional responses and understanding how to exercise self-control over them enables you to confront difficult issues and manage change with clarity and composure.
This program is designed to provide you with the knowledge and tools to develop your emotional intelligence. You’ll learn how to avoid self-sabotaging outcomes by altering how you perceive and respond to emotionally charged situations. In addition, you’ll improve your ability to resolve conflict constructively, create a productive work environment, build and mend relationships, and bounce back from setbacks and disappointment.

We engaged Robert Grossman (no relationship) to help us address labor-management challenges within our company. By creating a safe emotional space, sharing his expertise and personal experiences, and providing our team with valuable insight and strategies, Robert set us on the right path toward achieving a culture of high performance. Robert taught us the importance… of emotional intelligence, psychological safety, open communication, active listening, empathy, and understanding. These valuable tools help us become a healthier, more cohesive team, enabling us to focus on achieving our organization’s mission. I highly recommend Robert and Black Diamond Leadership.

I wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed the two sessions on emotional intelligence. I can’t think of a single person who wouldn’t benefit from emotional intelligence awareness. You are a wonderful presenter – thoughtful, professional and compassionate. Afterward, I had a conversation with one person who was sad the course was finished. Others really seemed… to enjoy it as well. Practice makes perfect, so I will continue to work on changing my response pathways and hopefully, it will become second nature. I am grateful Karim found you and continues to work with you. I can see clearly now why he is so excited. Read more “Nancy El-Hibri”

Thank you for your excellent presentation on Practicing Emotional Intelligence. I found your development tips tremendously helpful.
I teach Emotional Intelligence to students, unfortunately, EQ literature is often strong on good intentions rather than solid practical advice.
I can also relate to the fact that every day we face a choice to be empathic,… self-awareness and have the courage to change. I’d love to stay in touch so we can talk more about it. Read more “Diana Lenko, MBA”
