Emotional intelligence can significantly shift the culture of a team and build resilience. Recent research indicates that advanced emotional intelligence skills help you and your team to build a strong, positive culture and foster transparency, compassion, and empathy that will ultimately improve decision-making and productivity in your workplace.

This is a four-part workshop starting with an online questionnaire where you self-rate your own emotional intelligence – this will generate a comprehensive 20 page personalised report that will set the conversation and learnings for the rest of the workshop. A one of one session occurs 1-3 weeks beforehand with Dr Nigel Gribble to review your report. You will then attend the two half-day workshop sessions held at Curtin St Georges Terrace. Approximately 6 weeks after you will attend a 2 hour group session to share how the emotional intelligence strategies have been implemented into your workplace.
