    AFFORDANCES: WHAT WE SHOULD EXPECT OF OUR WORKPLACE

    LEADING WITH EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE
    10:15 – 11:45 a.m. | 1.5 IDCEC hour

    In school, we were put into teams, but we were never taught how to work within those teams. Our instructors gave us stress, but they never taught us how to handle and manage our stress. You see, most of these life skills are not taught in school or the workplace, for that matter. In today’s day and age, soft skills are just as, if not more, important than hard skills. Being aware of your emotions and those of others and learning to lead with emotional intelligence are skills that can be taught.

    Learning Objectives:

    • Discover what emotional intelligence is and why it is critical to leadership.
    • Learn about the EQ-i 2.0 model and explore its five composite scales.
    • Determine how the 15 EI competencies impact workplace effectiveness.
    • Gain a basic awareness of your EQ and understand how it relates to your work.stern_headsot.jpg

    MANAGING DIFFICULT PROFESSIONAL CONVERSATIONS
    12:30 – 1:30 p.m. | 1 IDCEC hour 

    Difficult conversations can pose challenges for even the most seasoned professionals. Over the last twenty years, Dr. Tim Black has developed a workshop template for assisting non-mental health professionals in developing the skills required for effectively entering into and exiting difficult conversations, while also maintaining the relationship with the individual.

    This workshop introduces participants to the template and provides the opportunity to practice the template with colleagues, using situations chosen by the participants themselves. Learning the template is important and, when combined with practice and professional coaching, the skills can be applied successfully within days of completing the workshop.tim_headshot.jpg
