P&F Coaching International, a leadership training and development organization producing emotionally intelligent leaders across the world, is urging all corporate executives and senior management staff to sign up for a three-day Emotional Intelligence (EI) assessment training Programme.
The training programme, which is slated between 11th and 13th August, 2021, is targeted at CEOs, executives, top managers, boards, and human resource executives with the aim of equipping them with the right mindset and skills to handle the emotions and intelligence of their employees.
To deliver an all-round comprehensive emotional assessment, the three-day programme will delve into the science of emotions, introduction and components of emotional intelligence on day one. The second day provides lessons on models for improving on EI, leading with EI and the impact of EI on productivity, whilst day three provides insights on resilience and mindfulness, as well as a personal 360 assessment.
Patrick Abah-Dakou, CEO of P&F Coaching International and Certified Leadership, Genos Emotional Intelligence Coach and Facilitator, touching on the importance of this training to leaders stated that there is a direct relationship between the way people feel at work and the way they perform, emphasizing that the more people are emotionally intelligent, the more they have a high degree of confidence and the more likely the returns the employer will receive.
He stressed that a successful EI training can decrease staff absenteeism on average by 30-40 percent, and decrease staff turnover by 10-25 percent.
“Emotional Intelligence can increase productivity. People who perform well create more value for their organization than their less performing counterparts. For example, high performers in unskilled labour demographics typically return 40 percent more whereas high performing, qualified managers typically return 80 percent more.
This is because performance levels can be monetarised this way and emotional intelligence accounts for some of this performance, we can estimate in monetary terms the likely gains in productivity that will occur from developing the emotional intelligence of employees,” he said.
Citing an example from a research work by Becker, Huselid and Ulrich 2001, in a book titled “The HR Scorecard,” he elaborated that it was shown that someone average in performance (i.e., at the 50th percentile) typically returns the annual salary they are paid. Thus, if they are paid $100,000 per year and are average in performance then they would typically return $200,000 per year in value.
On the other hand, people high in performance (one standard deviation above average or at the 84th percentile), typically produce 40 to 80 percent greater return on their salary compared to average performers (depending on their role level or role complexity).
“Over the last decade Genos International has shown that emotional intelligence assessment and development programs can improve employees’ emotional intelligence by an average of 20 percent,” he reiterated.
Paskaline Monlouis, CEO of Prieres 100% Business, Paris France, a beneficiary from an EI training programme, stated that EI brings huge impact on people’s lives and is crucial to top leadership of corporate organisations and state officials. She is therefore recommending the upcoming training in Ghana to every leader that is mindful of productivity growth.
Patrick is in agreement with Genos’ assertion that, “Levels of emotional intelligence as measured by Genos EI, create value for organisations that can be reliably estimated and monetarised because of the way emotional intelligence contributes to employee performance, absenteeism and turnover”.
