Taster Workshop: What is Emotional Intelligence?
Wednesday, February 5, 2020
1:00pm - 4:00pm
“Emotional intelligence” refers to a set of competencies that support our ability to manage ourselves and our relationships with other people.
People with strong EI are able to understand other people and the dynamics of an organization, and influence events to achieve their goals and the goals of the company. They have strong interpersonal relationship skills, can adapt to rapidly changing environments, and maintain balance during high-stress situations.
During this introductory workshop, attendees will receive an overview of the EI framework, and learn ways to increase their own level of self-awareness. We will explore ways to better understand what triggers our reactions, and how to manage our emotions in the moment.
In this half-day workshop, we will:
- Define and discuss what is EI and its importance in the workplace
- Explore the EI Competency Model
- Begin to develop your EI capabilities and identify areas of personal development
- Learn tools and strategies that can be applied immediately at work
Complimentary snacks, coffee, tea and water will be available throughout the event.
