About this event

About this virtual workshop

Emotional Intelligence enables better Collaboration. This webinar will explain the basic principles of Emotional Intelligence and how to develop its attributes. E.I. helps manage emotions that drive our own, and others, behaviour and reduces the tensions which arise in diversity. Elements of E.I. are self-awareness and knowledge of what you feel and why we feel it, self-management and the ability to express feelings in the right way. Developing motivation gives the internal drive to change the way we feel and expressing empathy means seeing issues from other’s perspective. The outcome is social skills which enable us to communicate and build strong connections. E.I. development takes time but the payback is significant.
