The theory? EQ = success + productivity²
Are you of the view that emotions don’t belong in the workplace? Like it or not, emotions play a principal role in our workplace satisfaction, (the primary reason employees leave a company is because of a negative relationship with their supervisor…) success and productivity.
The truth is that regular old IQ, technical know-how and subject expertise only get you so far in business today. Emotional Intelligence, or EQ, is the ability to manage your emotions and connect with others. This ability is critical in our culturally diverse, dispersed, fast-paced, global workplaces — and will make all the difference to your career.
And now you can get to grips with your EQ at our FREE evening event.
Facilitated by speech and communications expert, Dr Rebecca Johannsen, this is a masterclass in managing emotions in the workplace for a more successful and productive environment. Utilising performance skills, Dr Johannsen has helped transform workplaces in diverse fields from science and engineering to government and the military, and on both sides of the Atlantic, by means of leveraging EQ.
In an exciting session that will combine theory and practice, you will be empowered to take the skills learned in the course and apply them immediately to the real world.
You will learn all about:
- Identifying emotions in self and others and labelling them. Interpreting emotion in faces, posture, gesture, voice, and physiology
- Understanding emotions, their causes and consequences, and how they influence attention; thinking; decisions and behaviour
- Using emotions to facilitate the task at hand — knowing how and when to express emotions appropriately with different people and in multiple contexts
- Managing emotions: using effective cognitive and behavioural strategies to prevent, reduce, initiate, maintain, and enhance emotions
