Emotional and Social Intelligence at Work
This course develops the student’s understanding of the primary and secondary components of emotional and social intelligence and how they are applied in the workplace and in professional relationships within a variety of organizational contexts (including private, public, nonprofit, and military contexts). Students explore the origins of emotional and social intelligence, as well as the importance of exercising workplace emotional and social intelligence within and beyond organizational settings. Students identify their own levels of emotional and social intelligence and learn how they can further develop and apply this intelligence in a variety of business and non-business contexts. Specific applications are made to workplace relationships, communication, team collaboration, diversity, managing conflict, and leadership. Corequisite(s): ENGL 60.
