Introduction

In today's work environment, grooming and etiquette plays a very vital role in any business endeavor. Protocol, manners, behavior and formalities appropriate to the occasion, greatly enhance the chances of successful interactions and fruitful negotiations, leading to lasting personal and business relationships. Thus, it is imperative for executives at all levels to learn and practice the same to have that crucial edge, in the business scenario.

More deals are struck over lunch and dinner than in the office. Many business functions take place in dining situations – whether it's meeting an employer for a interview or business discussions with clients/colleagues. Mastering impeccable dining and table manners gives you that extra confidence to concentrate on your clients or colleagues. You want to focus on discussions instead of worrying about which fork/cutlery to use and other dining emergencies. Understanding the flow of the different courses in a meal and handling them with ease, with good manners, is very conducive to desired outcomes.

The 2 days workshop aims at giving practical inputs to enable participants to groom themselves appropriately, build a professional attitude and take their business and dining etiquette to the next level. The participants will also be introduced to fine dining etiquette across cross cultures. The workshop also employs world class tool of 'Image Management', to ensure complete image makeover.

Note on 'Image Management'

Image management is the science and art of pro-active ongoing evaluation and control of the impact of appearance on self, others and the achievement of  goals. Image influences public perception of you, which in turn results in an impression of you.  You judge others via first impressions, and the image they portray is part of those first impressions. Most people are unaware of the fact that a major part of communication is visual. What we see we remember and what we hear we forget. For this reason creating first impressions is very crucial and important in today's competitive scenario. With Image Management, one can master the art of expression through physical appearance, body language and business etiquette to project confidence and trustworthiness. These factors also assist in projecting an image of capability and Leadership, for e.g, at a conference or an important meeting. This in turn, ensures achieving full potential and ultimate success. An organization's corporate image is reflected in the employees and this impacts how clients, prospects and business partners perceive your organization. What we see, we believe, is the latest mantra in the Corporate. In today's environment, success not only depends on traditional factors like knowledge, sincerity, hard work, performance etc. but also is dependent on the superficial image we project.

Deliverables

The 2 days workshop will enable the participants to:
  • Understand the importance of making lasting impressions and fundamentals of corporate grooming and etiquette
  • Create an unique identity with great impact, by developing an appropriate image, to achieve goals successfully
  • Develop a personal style through body language, power dressing and grooming
  • Conduct  in a professional manner to make social and business interactions pleasant and productive
  • Be adept at dining etiquette and table manners
  • Understand the style of dining etiquette across cross cultures

Benefits

The 2 days workshop will immensely help Organizations in empowering their employees to project a professional and consistent winning image, in consonance with defined business objectives. The sure takeaways for Organizations are numerous viz., Premium Projection, Positioning & Pricing, Larger Market Share, Attracting Best Talent & Retention, Lower Attrition Costs and reaching new levels of Employee Morale, Culture and Engagement etc.

Workshop on Emotional Intelligence in Pune on 15-16 March' 2013

Workshop on Emotional Intelligence in Pune on 15th and 16th March' 13

QICPL (Quantum Infotrainers & Consultants Pvt. Ltd.) is a young & dynamic organisation. At the very core is its belief in Quality Commitment & Ethics. Ever since its inception on 5th Sept 2001 it bridged the gap between the requirements of the industry and the curriculum of Educational Institutions

Quantum will be hosting a two days workshop on "Emotional Intelligence (EI)" at Pune. The details of the workshop are as follows:

What is EI?
The expression (EI) indicates a kind of intelligence or skill that involves the ability to perceive, assess and positively influence one's own and other people's emotions. EI is a mix of skills, such as awareness of emotions; traits, such as persistence and zeal; and effective behaviour.

Organizational change and increased stress levels seem to go hand in hand these days. The corporate sector in India is going through a rapid metamorphosis, bringing with it a tremendous change, not providing sufficient time to employees to adjust to it. This poses a challenge to employees whose beliefs can make them resistant to change, or intolerant of and resentful to the discomfort caused. The pressures that come along with this, may cause individuals to generate negative self-defeating internal dialogue which can lead to negative emotions such as anger, anxiety, depression, rage, resentment etc. this ironically comes in their own way, and keeps them and the organization from reaching their goals, and contributes to their failures.

Goleman claimed EI is "twice as powerful" as IQ, and may predict far greater success in life, as compared to cognitive and analytical skills.

Description of the workshop:
This workshop is intended for people seeking the skills and emotional understanding to work with complex, interpersonal situations such as conflict. It starts by examining the principles of EI. It then looks at how these can be used to understand situations and how to select and apply techniques and approaches to effectively achieve desired outcomes. The first section examines the development of emotional expression, beliefs and behaviours in order to better diagnose and read other people's (and our own) behaviour, particularly emotional messages and reactions. This provides an understanding of why conflict is often complicated and not easily resolved. Included in the first day are EI techniques for remaining calm and not becoming defensive or caught up in difficult interactions. Practical exercises are used to illustrate and practise communication skills and techniques for using group dynamics to set up and conduct constructive resolution processes. Other workshop elements include understanding and working with over-reactions, anxiety, anger and defensiveness. The workshop has a very practical focus and participants are encouraged to bring with them examples of real conflict situations so that these can be addressed.

Workshop Contents:
» What is self talk?
» Identifying self talk
» Thinking and emotions
» The importance of emotional regulation
» The ABCD'S of Emotional intelligence

» Identifying your core beliefs
» Identifying faulty thinking
» Emotional intelligence in the workplace: do's and don'ts
» Ways to enhance emotional competencies in one self and others.
» Personal Action Plan

Organizational Benefits:
Researchers have found a significant relationship between emotional intelligence and the different level of meaning an individual holds towards work. They also believe emotional intelligence can enhance workplace performance, depending on the nature of the position. Emotionally intelligent individuals performed better under difficult and stressful tasks. Emotional intelligence may be an important, even necessary, ability for leaders, to motivate and influence others.

EI predicted organizational commitment and job satisfaction, particularly when combined with job control. Ashkanasy and Jordan (1997) found that emotional intelligence predicted the ability to endure job insecurity and periods of short-term unemployment. People who deal better with emotional problems experienced less burnout caused by work. Empathy, self-regulation of mood, and self-presentation are significantly related to emotional intelligence.

Workshop Particulars:
Location: Pune, Dates: March 15-16, 2013 (Fri & Sat)
Time: 9:30 am - 5:30 pm

Methodology:
This workshop is respectful of people's preferences for approaching this sometimes challenging material, and will provide ways for people to be self-determining in their own participation. Participants will be encouraged to work with the EI concepts and skills in relation to situations they have experienced, or those they are currently facing.

A variety of methods will be used in the workshop including:
» The presentation and explanation of frameworks, skills and techniques
» Interactive discussion of concepts and their applications
