Emotional competence of the leader

The Emotional Competence of a Leader course is focused on how to use work with emotions to improve relationships and atmosphere in the team .

“Our team is a great group, we enjoy our work, we have the courage to do new things, we can understand each other even if we have different opinions. When we succeed in something, we experience joint joy. We are interested in each other, we can appreciate each other and we can tolerate each other even with different points of view. We have a lot of work to do.”“For us, it’s like a summer on a sled. I feel like we’ve resigned, we argue sometimes and we kind of don’t care what we think about things. Instead of looking for solutions, we often blame ourselves. I’m upset and I’d like to go somewhere else.’
