Safety is imbedded throughout all levels of helicopter operations, but managers can unintentionally create an atmosphere that diminishes safety instead of fostering it. This class will discuss the importance of developing emotional intelligence (EQ) to improve awareness, communication, and behavior. Developed EQ creates more effective leaders and stronger team and crew cohesion for better decision-making under pressure. The result is enhanced safety and higher performance and productivity to meet business and safety needs. Attendees will apply what they learn in class by developing a personal “EQ-I 2.0” learning plan.

Learning Objectives: By the conclusion of the course, participants will have learned:

  • The role EQ plays in effective leadership and safety
  • The problems organizations experience when EQ is absent,
  • Why it’s important for managers to assess their crew’s EQ.
