>>>WEBINAR SERIES 1: Understanding Personalities in the Workplace, Aug. 14, 21, and 28, 2:00-3:00 PM
If you’ve ever asked yourself, “Why did they DO that?” attend this informative and fun workshop series and find out! Participants will learn and begin to master an understanding of their own personality style; the characteristics of each of the 4 personality styles; how to interact with each of the 4 styles; and an understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of each style.
>>>WEBINAR SERIES 2: Emotional Intelligence in Your Workplace, Sept. 18, 25 and Oct. 2, 2:00-3:00 PM
Emotional Intelligence: simply defined, it’s being intelligent about emotions–yours and others’. We’ll delve into how our behavioral styles can affect our levels of emotional intelligence. We’ll also take a closer look at emotions: What are emotions anyway? Are we even aware of them when they happen? Can we control them? We’ll also probe how our emotions affect how we interact with others and discover the potential for improving our emotional intelligence, why it matters in the workplace, and why it might be challenging to do so.
