Interpersonal/Emotional Intelligence is one of the primary 

determinants of success in both our work and our personal lives. 

However, unlike IQ, Interpersonal Intelligence can be increased and enhanced.

  • Psychology at Work’s Interpersonal Intelligence Programme helps individuals, teams and organisations to optimise their interpersonal style by helping individuals shift behaviour that complicates relationships and limits the attainment of their objectives.
  • This process allows for behaviour shift in various contexts. For example, if we are motivated to change the way we manage upwards, i.e. our boss - and it is successful - then we are likely to generalise our new skills and behaviour to other contexts, like our intimate partnerships, relationships with our children and even mother-in-laws, as well as subordinates, etc.
  • A cognitive behavioural methodology is employed so as to enable deep, meaningful and sustained change. To help give participants the courage to change, the facilitation process and style makes full use of humour and irreverence to enable them to appreciate their humanity! (Be warned!) 

                                                           How does the Interpersonal Intelligence Programme work? 


Facilitated understanding of the behavioural model, with colourful and personal   examples.  By the end of day 1, individuals share a common language in the classification of different behaviors.


Cognitive behavioural techniques are used to facilitate a self-managed mind-shift in term of behavior. By the end of day 2, participants will have an awareness of how to emotionally manage themselves and how to deal with others.


Recipes for dealing with specific interactions are practiced. Feedback from the group and the facilitator(s) is shared.  By the end of day 3, individuals will have practised their new interpersonal style.


Giving and receiving feedback in a “live” situation helps individuals entrench their new skills and gives them the opportunity to achieve a successful experience.  By the end of day 4, individuals will have given one another real-time feedback.
