Online Instructor-Led Emotional Intelligence Course for Healthcare Professionals
Heart Smart: The EQ Advantage in Healthcare
Available Formats: Virtual Classroom Course
This communication skills course for healthcare providers will:
Define emotional intelligence.
Explain the value of a high emotional intelligence quotient when working in healthcare settings.
Describe how providers with strong emotional intelligence can enhance the patient experience.
Suggest methods for improving emotional intelligence.
When patients feel their providers connect with them and are genuinely concerned about their well-being, satisfaction scores improve. Of course, the opposite is also true. If providers lack people skills, the patient experience suffers, and healthcare providers find themselves in a seemingly endless cycle of service recovery and playing catch up.
Good news: healthcare organizations don’t have to practice defensive medicine if they practice caring medicine, and this course is designed to help people do just that by developing their emotional intelligence.
At this program’s conclusion, participants should be able to:
Demonstrate self-management during emotionally charged interactions.
Practice impulse control.
Increase patient sensitivity during times of stress and tension.
Recognize, read and respond appropriately to a patient’s cues.
Demonstrate empathy and the ability to connect through active listening.
Remain optimistic and encouraging during difficult yet delicate patient conversations.
Implement strategies for managing and responding to problematic stress behaviors.
Apply Emotional Understanding
By the conclusion of the course, participants will understand the role emotional intelligence plays in providing outstanding service to patients and other customers.

“I have never attended D&I training before and didn’t know what to expect. This exceeded my expectations. It wasn’t boring. It was timely and relevant. D&I can be a sensitive topic with some and I felt like the approach here brought people along with being judgmental or condemning anyone.”
Training Participant, ICBA
“My director just called me and said whatever discussions you and Stefanie had made this training focused, interesting, fun, and valuable – she’s already getting additional feedback on the team (they love the interactivity). She already wants me to work with you and Chris on something else. And she’s not an easy push….so thank you, thank you!”
Leo S., Training and Development, HHS
“Our customer service manager of 21 years stated that this training was the best and the most relevant class she attended in her career.”
