Why Choose this Training Course?
In his famous book, Emotional Intelligence: Why It Can Matter More Than IQ, Psychologist Daniel Goleman brought the idea of EI to the masses. Goleman based his ideas on emerging work in neuroscience that shows that the brain’s emotional centres are involved in everything we think and do and are enormously important in our daily life.
