Performing Under Pressure - The Science of Emotional Intelligence

A partnership between the Institute for Health and Human Potential (IHHP) and CPHR Manitoba

Why do smart people fail? Why do technically brilliant individuals have trouble managing others and collaborating on a team? What they lack is a critical level of Emotional Intelligence (EI) and the ability to manage theirs and others emotions when they are under pressure.

Whether you are leading a team or want to increase your individual performance, this program will teach you the foundational principles and brain science of emotional intelligence. You will become a student of human behavior: understanding what your brain does under pressure and how that affects your decision making and the impact you have on others.

You will learn how to be at your best in your most difficult moments. In this program, you will:

  • Learn the brain science of emotions that drives your behaviour under pressure
  • Increase your self-awareness of the 11 key EI competencies that drive your success
  • Optionally participate in an EI360 feedback assessment
  • Learn practical strategies that help you respond more skillfully under pressure
  • Identify patterns, triggers and emotional habits that either drive or derail your performance
  • Understand how to be an effective coach to help develop others to perform under pressure
  • Develop an action plan to put these strategies into practice
