Live Webinar – Emotional Intelligence at Work
Tuesday, May 3, 2015, 1:00 p.m. – 1:30 p.m. EDT
How well we can manage our own emotions and deal with the emotions of others are two important aspects of our emotional intelligence. From a definition by Dr. Reuven Bar-On, emotional intelligence is “an array of non-cognitive capabilities, competencies, and skills that influence our ability to succeed in coping with environmental demands and pressures.” Through practical examples, certified experiential psychotherapist and emotional intelligence coach Sue Freeman outlines what emotional intelligence means for personal and professional growth, developing successful teams, and satisfying clients.
A recorded session of the webinar will be made available after the live event, and can be watched on-demand. More information on how to register is available on the CCOHS website.
