Learn About Essential Interpersonal Skills with New Webinar

Emotional intelligence is very important. People who can control their emotions well and use their emotions to connect with others are often success in the workplace. Research shows that when people are emotionally intelligent they are better equipped to confront challenging issues and frequent change.

It’s important to be able to manage emotions by recognizing how thoughts and emotions are connected. Self-control can be improved by identifying physical cues that indicate one’s emotions may be taking over. Those who want to improve their emotional skills should learn how to use assertive communication to express their needs and feelings appropriately.

There are four aspects of emotional intelligence. They are:

  • Intrapersonal skills. The ability to recognize one’s emotions as they occur and to exhibit self-control in emotional situations.
  • Interpersonal skills. The ability to recognize others’ emotions, have positive relationships and minimize unproductive conflict.
  • Adaptability skills. The ability to be flexible in changing conditions, manage stress productively and solve problems effectively.
  • Resilience skills. The ability to bounce back, regain self-confidence and maintain a positive perspective in the face of negativity.

Emotional intelligence is a skill that can be improved with proper training and practice. HRDQ is hosting an hour-long webinar on July 31 that will show attendees how to develop this skill. Webinar host and interpersonal communication expert Alvina Peat will explore the four vital components, including intrapersonal skills, interpersonal skills, adaptability, and resilience. She will also discuss strategies for continuous improvement, conflict resolution techniques, and more.

Attendees will learn what emotional intelligence is and why it’s important in today’s organizations, how emotional intelligence can improve performance and success in the workplace, and how to create an emotional intelligence development plan.

For a more in-depth look at how to develop one’s emotional intelligence, HRDQ also offers ‘Emotional Intelligence: A Scientifically Proven Method for Developing the Skills of Success,’ which is a program that teaches learners how to improve this soft skill.
