Imsimbi Training’s emotional intelligence course is a life changing programme that can have a tremendous impact on the success and effectiveness of your work life, career and home life. Over one thousand delegates have attended Imsimbi Training’s Emotional Intelligence course and have found it very beneficial.
Emotional Intelligence is the single most important indicator in producing people who are able to work effectively in organizations at the highest levels. Longer term sustainability, requires that people go beyond I.Q. and develop their full E.Q.
This course is an invitation to go on a journey of self-awareness and develop effective and professional interpersonal skills. Furthermore the course helps you understand and manage your negative emotions and increase your resilience. In fact it is known that it is not the hardest working or most intelligent people who succeed, but people who have high levels of emotional intelligence and who are able to illicit the cooperation of their colleagues and lead and motivate teams of people.
EQ explains why some people excel while others who appear to have similar capabilities lag behind. This course will contribute to both personal excellence and greater leadership capabilities. We explore the solidity of our self-confidence and the way in which it supports our sense of competence, capability and ability to win out in changing or adverse situations.
The course helps delegates develop a range of tools and techniques for building their emotional intelligence for an effective and successful life.

“I want to thank you for the privilege I had of attending this course. It was everything I expected and more! The course was informative and the trainer made it very interesting and interactive. The course was insightful, educational and most definitely helpful and useful in the workplace. If I had any say in the matter, I would suggest that each and every person attend this course. Purely for the reason that employees need these skills to be able to make our working environment a pleasure to be in every day.”
