- Export as iCalendar
Location: Microsoft Teams

Emotional intelligence is a crucial skill which you can use to build a better research team and increase their effectiveness and productivity. Emotional intelligence also is crucial for conflict resolution and managing others. As with any other skill, emotional intelligence can be learned to help you become more emotionally adept, and resilient and manage better any challenges during your PhD.

In this workshop, which will be supported by a qualified and licenced low-intensity psychological wellbeing practitioner, you will learn the difference between self-esteem and self-confidence, and the 5 facets of emotional intelligence will be identified. We will also mention the importance of your core values and help you to identify your own core values (beliefs). The workshop will also introduce you to the Power of affirmation.

By the end of this session, you will be able to understand what emotional intelligence is, identify your core values and understand how to become more emotionally resilient and intelligent. There will be no need to disclose private or confidential information; we will just be discussing a practice which you can apply in your own time.
