Social Intelligence

Social Intelligence
Date and time
9:00 AM - 4:00 PM, April 05, 2017

The newest of the multiple intelligences, and akin to Emotional Intelligence, Social Intelligence (SQ) can help you select and train team members that can work well with others, within the social context of the work environment, as well as convince others to cooperate with them. Everyone in the workplace needs to exert leadership in some form or another. One of the key aspects of an effective leader is the ability to develop, communicate and create a shared sense of vision - in other words, get everybody on board. SQ hones your "social radar" to help you become more aware of the feelings, needs and interest of others.

Workshop Objectives:

  • Define Social Intelligence (SQ)?

  • Its place within multiple intelligences, such as IQ & EQ

  • SPACE - the five elements of Social Intelligence

  • SPACE out or SPACE in

  • Reading the SQ of others

  • Assessing Your SQ: the SPACE instrument

  • Analyzing Your Social Intelligence

  • Managing yourself in social situations

  • Managing others in social situations

"More people have lost jobs, friends, and mates as a result of social incompetence than for any other reasons." (Karl Albrecht - developer of the SPACE model for SQ)

So, join us in this workshop to hone our "social radar" and gain a set of practical skills for interacting successfully in various situations.
