Stephen J. Blakesley, Managing Partner of GMS Talent L P announces new emotional intellignece training in three specific areas: Leadership, Selling and Coaching.
"After years of research, we came to believe that there are some powerful and effective tools available to corporations that are just not being used properly or possibly not being used at all. To address that gap, we have devoted substantial resources to new training and education methods,and content. We proudly announce our new "Foundation Skills Training."
In just one year, for instance, American corporations spent 50 billion dollars on Leadership training. Around the world, corporations spent another 20 billion on sales training. In the U.S., corporations are believed to spend over 1 billion dollars on coaching, annually."That much money spent on anything deserves accountability," says Blakesley. With those facts in mind a legitimate question might be; What are we getting for our money?
One only has to watch the nightly news to wonder if all that money is being well spent. GMS Talent believes that Leadership training has, for too long, focused on the tasks a leader must do while overlooking the "touches" they need to perform. We belive that Sales training has focused on the process of selling rather than the emotional skill required to sell, at a higher level. A commitment to identifying strengths and weaknesses, learning how to apply our talents is almost a lost art.
Training corporations and individuals on the application of emotional intelligence to each of these three, core functions is producing results and opening eyes to the need to return to fundamentals and make sure our people are first, grounded in the essentials before working on the "nice to haves."
Most will agree that IQ and EQ are equal partners in building a success track and seldom can one achieve the objective without the other.
