MGT675: Agile Emotional Intelligence: Everything DiSC Agile EQ

Brookings_Seal(RGB)1000-01-1
Course summary:
The more volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous our working environments become, the more critical a truly agile workforce is to success. Each day, we are called to make progress faster, while pivoting on short notice. To stand firm in our ideas while remaining open to new perspectives. Staying agile demands that we develop and use our emotional intelligence (EQ)—a level of sophistication that has never been demanded before.
 
Course experience:
Everything DiSC Agile EQ helps learners explore the concept of emotional intelligence and introduces the idea of Agile EQ—the ability to stretch beyond one’s comfort zone and adopt the optimal response in a given situation. It helps participants understand the need for and value of a variety of responses and provides tips and guidance for learning to stretch to those responses that might initially feel uncomfortable. This will help learners become better at navigating different workplace challenges and interactions.
