Emotional Intelligence

This 2-part workshop explores emotional intelligence: the ability to identify and manage one’s own emotions, as well as the emotions of others.

Emotional intelligence can impact your ability to manage effective relationships and is a quality often sought by employers.

  • About emotional intelligence: understanding ourselves and others

    In this 2-part workshop, participants will use the TICK behavioural questionnaire to understand their communication style, and to “pick” the style of others they deal with each day. In understanding your own style you can leverage your style strengths and determine strategies to limit your potential hindering behaviours to build better relationships and gain better work outcomes. In understanding the styles of others you can learn to adapt your own style behaviours to assist better working relationships and outcomes.

    Session 1 will concentrate on better understanding our own styles and the natural strengths and limitations it brings to our communication with others.

    Session 2 will combine the principles of emotional intelligence – self awareness/management, social awareness and relationship management - to the way we understand the styles of others proactively to set relationships and work outcomes up for success.

  • Workshop timeframe and dates

    The workshop is delivered across two 3-hour sessions. Prior to session one, participants will be required to complete the TICK behavioural questionnaire which should take no more than 15-20 to complete. Participants are then expected to attend both workshop sessions in full.

    The next workshop is scheduled for 4 October (session 1) and 11 October 2019 (session 2) and will be held on the North Terrace campus.
