This will enable you to maximise the benefit for yourself and the organisation you are working within, creating a win/win outcome.

* Understand the key concepts of emotional intelligence

Using this knowledge you can develop powerful techniques and skills to help you overcome a variety of challenges. For example, preparing for an effective job or work placement interview; managing your university group work more effectively; progressing your career in the direction you want, as well as challenges that may occur in your personal life. 
 
This approach moves behaviour out of the realm of personal criticism and helps us to discuss our behaviour and that of others in a constructive way. 
 
You will receive 30 minutes of one-to-one support to help implement the techniques learned.  
 
The programme delivery is a mix of interactive sessions, workshops and discussions.  
This course will be offered on the 29th March 2017, 9.00 until 12.30 at the City South Campus. Please click here to book your place via the eventbrite booking page.
