Course Description

Social Intelligence: Transform Relationships

Humans are naturally social beings and all human interaction takes place within settings such as the workplace, home, and communities. Mastering these interactions within these settings is vital. Social Intelligence (SI) is mostly learned and is developed from experiences with people and learning from successes and failures in social contexts. It is more commonly referred to as “tact,” “common sense,” or “street smarts.” Many people tend to value Intelligence Quotient (IQ) and Emotional Intelligence (EQ), but our “social intelligence” equally affects our relationships and is a much bigger part of our lives.

In this seminar, discover how social intelligence is an essential aspect of self-awareness and can make you a well-rounded individual by enhancing your (IQ) and (EQ). Develop an awareness of how social dynamics, interactions, and reactions that govern social situations may enable you to build social intelligence. Examine strategies to improve your social intelligence in specific settings.
