LILRC Webinar: Making Space for Self – Developing Emotional Intelligence Skills in the Workplace
October 14 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Confucius said: “Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.” There are those who are consistent high performers. There are those who excel at maintaining a sense of calm and rarely react to stress. Considering the on-the-job stress, interpersonal challenges at work, how do we hear the words of Confucius and have a job we love; so that ultimately, we can feel motivated and motivate others?
We will look at filling your EI toolbox with skills needed to build a bridge between the cognitive brain and the emotional brain to have higher workplace satisfaction.
