Emotional intelligence - the ability to understand ourselves and others – is central to career and personal success. In this workshop we will explore the five key principles of emotional intelligence to improve our self-understanding and ability to adapt to others. We will identify how being emotionally intelligent enables us to communicate more effectively and build stronger working partnerships.

By the end of this workshop you will have:

  • Developed an understanding of the key components of emotional intelligence

About Working with others

The ability to work effectively with others is critical to success in professional and research contexts. Research teams and successful collaborations rely on individuals who have emotional intelligence, communicate effectively and engage positively with others – particularly in leadership roles.
