This is an online training and development programme designed for emerging African leaders in the private sector. Emotional intelligence is a skill that employees need to succeed in the workplace and in society.
Indeed, it is a key leadership skill: “The most effective leaders are all alike in one crucial way: they all have a high degree of what has come to be known as emotional intelligence. It’s not that IQ and technical skills are irrelevant. They do matter, but…they are the entry-level requirements for executive positions… emotional intelligence is the sine qua non of leadership.
