Learn the building blocks of emotional intelligence
If you think emotions don’t belong in the workplace, it’s time to reevaluate that assumption. Having an emotional understanding of your colleagues — and demonstrating respect for their skills, preferences, backgrounds, experiences and other elements of diversity — is key to building and working as a high-functioning team.
As international thought leader Britt Andreatta aptly explains, “Every organization achieves its goals through a series of daily conversations, interactions, and decisions. Each of these involves humans — and the more emotionally intelligent they are, the more effective they will be on every level.”
The good news about emotional intelligence is that it can be taught — and a live virtual course is coming soon to UCOP! Register today for Emotional intelligence: Attain results through people, taking place Thursday, March 2, from 1 – 3 p.m. (PT).
