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.

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.
