Emotional Intelligence Workshop (May 7)

When & Where
Date / Time:
May 07, 2021 - 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM

Why do some people have trouble being effective in their roles or working well with others? It is usually not because they lack skills; rather, it is often because they lack emotional intelligence. Emotional intelligence has a far greater impact on people’s ability to be productive and work well with others than cognitive intelligence. Emotionally intelligent people are able to identify and assess their emotions and those of others, and then use that information to guide their actions and influence the actions of others. This workshop reviews how to utilize emotional intelligence more effectively through self-assessment and skill development exercises. Participants will learn strategies that will increase their ability to engage with others and expand their influence. 

The virtual workshop will be interactive and include features such as shared screen and breakout rooms which will allow the trainer to facilitate an engaging workshop experience. A webinar link and manual will be distributed to enrolled participants prior to the session. This day-long workshop, delivered by ACHIEVE Centre for Leadership and sponsored by Yellowhead Regional Library, is ideal for library leaders and anyone wanting to build EI skills. All participants are asked to sign up via Eventbrite.
