Emotional Intelligence & Communication
When things get emotionally heated, it can be difficult to address a situation productively – one can feel that their choice is limited to speaking out of anger and frustration or to avoiding the conversation altogether.
Our Emotional Intelligence & Communication workshop shows participants that a far better option exists. They learn a simple yet powerful framework for addressing emotionally-heightened situations in the workplace, including identifying, evaluating, and influencing the emotions of the parties involved in a charged situation. They see how improved self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, and relationship management skills can directly impact their professional success.
Theories come alive during fun, interactive exercises, including customized role-play simulations that capture the specific challenges they face in your organization.

The Practitioner Advantage
Each member of the Consensus team has more than fifteen years of field experience, working on behalf of clients as their negotiators and mediators. As practitioners, we routinely test and apply cutting edge strategies and theories as part of our various client situations, ranging from hostage situations to billion-dollar business transactions to political standoffs.
Accordingly, we are highly informed about the strengths inherent to different approaches and frameworks, and how various theoretical concepts would or would not apply to your contexts. Our practitioner experience translates into more concrete advice based on firsthand experience, a true understanding of how theories play out in the real world (and when popular ideas would fall short), and an ability to relate to professionals at all levels of seniority – including members of your C-suite.
Contact Consensus to determine which Negotiation & Influence workshop would best meet your learning objectives and participant needs.
We also would be happy to discuss a fully-customized curriculum that addresses other related topics and goals.
