By growing our emotional intelligence (aka, our people skills) we make our interactions better—much better.
Let’s face it, we all have to interact with people, and people are emotionally complex. This can make interacting with each other challenging at times.
EI for the Regular Guy will help your people:
- Form stronger, healthier relationships.
- Resolve conflict faster.
- Communicate more effectively.
- Improve their confidence and conviction.
- Handle change better.
- Navigate challenging situations with ease.
- Better anticipate customer and co-worker needs.
- Effectively and efficiently solve problems.
Let’s take a look at how…
EI for the Regular Guy is blended-learning that meets the development needs of smart, fast-paced companies. It starts with a revolutionary, self-paced eBook, transitions into a series of application assignments, and ends with a highly interactive instructor-led event. This approach makes EI for the Regular Guy effective because it reaches all types of learners – those who learn by seeing/reading, those who learn by doing, and those who learn by hearing.
|Training that everyone can get
EI for the Regular Guy reaches a broader audience by using a design approach and writing style that is conversational, to the point, and even amusing. You won’t stumble over complex scientific terms, have to sift through unnecessary fluff, or spend your time pulling out the dictionary to look up fancy $10 words. The course speaks to the average person the way the average person speaks in real life. This makes the training relatable and impactful, allowing participants to easily absorb the concepts and grow their emotional intelligence.
|An eBook that’s revolutionary and saves time
Participants begin by downloading an interactive eBook to their tablet; they can read it when they want, where they want. The eBook lays the foundation by building the case for EI, introducing core concepts, and presenting scenarios and short quizzes for participants to work through. It helps participants gain insight and learn how to manage their emotions and behaviors so they can communicate better and have healthier interactions. And, with quirky fun facts, humorous imagery, engaging videos, and smart models, the eBook keeps participants entertained, too.
|Application occurs immediately
Practice starts with the eBook, but it doesn’t stop there. Participants get a packet of self-paced work to complete so they can immediately apply what they learned in the eBook. This helps them personally connect to the content and put the concepts into action in their own environments. Thus, they can experience the impact EI has on their ability to solve problems and positively impact the outcome of interactions. This equips participants with the tools and insights needed to take part in the high-energy, activity-heavy instructor-led event.
|An in-class event with some life to it
The in-class event is full of energy and heavy on activity. The day is built around minimal lecture interspersed between opportunities to demonstrate EI concepts. By spending most of the day in application mode, participants sharpen their EI skills and improve their ability to strengthen relationships with other people. By the time they’re finished, participants have the tools and skills to successfully form healthy relationships, increase collaboration at work, promote a positive working environment, and improve the quality of their work.
|An action plan to ensure EI success
The participant materials act as sustainable reference guides that include important pieces of information and give space for recording personal insights. The action planning connects the concepts to the individual on a more personal level. Throughout the in-class event, participants get opportunities to customize the tools and techniques to align with their own EI needs and goals. This supports participants’ emotional intelligence development beyond the training experience.
|An EI experience that keeps facilitators top-of-mind
The materials are designed to support a novice facilitator, as well as more experienced trainers. For the novice, the materials include special tips, suggestions, back-up plans, watch-outs and much more. Experienced facilitators get that stuff, but they also have the option to teach from shortened section outlines that skip those extras. Facilitators can use the materials to support their level of skill as they see fit. After just a little prep time upfront, facilitating this course is a breeze.
