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).

In this comprehensive two-hour overview, you’ll start with the fundamentals of emotional intelligence before launching into a series of experiential exercises to help you experience various aspects of emotional intelligence firsthand so you can learn strategies and behaviors to cultivate and use in your day-to-day life.

Key takeaways include:

  • An understanding of how self-awareness is the building block for emotional intelligence and how to enhance self-awareness through reflection and mindfulness practices
  • Strategies for enhancing self-awareness and therefore self-management, enabling proactive and effective communication and response
  • Tools for using self-awareness, self-management and social awareness, to be more effective in relating to people, motivating them, managing difficult situations and de-escalating conflict
