Monol International Education Institute understands how Emotional Intelligence can affect the career of its employees. To build a better workplace and impart why Emotional Intelligence is important, Monol International recently invited all employees to a Team Building Seminar on Emotional Intelligence last November 4, 2017 at the B3 Employees Lounge.
The Performance and Hiring Department of Monol International organized the event to discuss why emotional intelligence, or EQ, needs to be understood by its employees. “As an employee, you have to know yourself very well to become effective and efficient in the workplace”, says the PHD Department.
Post ESL Teachers, Teaching Department Officers, General ESL Monthly, Housekeeping, Kitchen A, Security A, Laundry Group, Driver A, and Maintenance staff attended the 1st seminar last November 4. It has 2 sessions split in the morning and afternoon. Besides the seminar there were also activities and snacks offered during the event.
The specific agenda for the seminar is as follows:
*To have a deeper understanding of Emotional Intelligence and its different domains
*Compare and contrast the impact of Intelligence Quotient and Emotional Quotient in the workplace
*Recognize the importance of emotional intelligence in the workplace and in our daily lives
*At the end of the training sessions, the following are the expected result:
- To be able to understand and accurately assess your own emotional state;
- To manage your own emotions to avoid conflicts or disagreement with co-employee;
- To be aware and empathize with the organization you are working in;
- To be able to guide and motivate you in achieving the goal of the organization
Every workplace is comprised of people with different strengths, personalities and emotions, which can greatly affect the way they work. Emotional intelligence is the ability to identify and manage your emotions as well as the emotions of others.
Having emotional intelligence increases your chances of being more accepted on teams and considered for leadership positions.
According to an article by the University of Florida, “No matter how many degrees or other qualifications an employee has, if he or she doesn’t have certain emotional qualities, he or she is unlikely to succeed. As the workplace continues to evolve, making room for new technologies and innovations, these qualities may become increasingly important”.
There will be another team building seminar on November 11 that would include the Office Personnel, Kitchen B, Security B, Nurse, Officers, ZOA, ICS, Driver B, and General ESL Hourly Teachers
