When the world around you changes in an unprecedented way managing emotions can be difficult. Without normal structures and routines many may spiral into bouts of strong negative emotions such as depression, fear and frustration.
Organisation’s are trying to support staff remotely who are all dealing with different challenges. Some are isolated and lonely, some are struggling to cope with increased family needs and others are fearful around health or vulnerable family members who are far away.
Building skills in emotional intelligence can help to develop resilience and ensure that the negative emotions come, but don’t linger too long and we are able to have more positive emotional experiences.
When people hear ‘emotion’ they often think it is soft and fluffy and not related to business. Surely people succeed by keeping emotions out of the workplace? Right? We can’t help but have emotions. They are always there and they always influence how we behave, whether we choose to recognise them or not.
Basically, emotions matter for every important aspect of our life. Emotions are not ‘soft’ they are ‘hard’; in that they are difficult to master and impact every tangible outcome that we might use to measure our success in life.
The Emotional Intelligence virtual EQ training is split into two, 180 minute workshops. The first one focuses on the self and can be delivered as a stand-alone workshop. The second workshop focuses on the relationship aspect of emotional intelligence and building social connections with others.
