Emotional Intelligence
Implementing discipline over our emotional life is difficult and requires lifelong practice. Being able to choose to act or respond in a particular manner is preferable to re-acting on a consistent basis, yet it is difficult. Enhancing emotional intelligence improves our ability to master our emotional functioning. High emotional intelligence can improve our communications with all others, enhance our perception of satisfaction with ourselves and our lives and increase our productiveness overall.

"Oops" moments happen everyday. At times they are public, unavoidable and have real consequences. In the workplace, errors should be viewed as a process in which the objective is to learn from your mistakes so that they cannot hinder your future performance at work or in life. This workshop will define the next steps once a mistake is made and demonstrate that these inevitable moments can be seen as an event and not an adjective or descriptor of things to come.

How to Receive Criticism and Make It Work for You
Receiving criticism is an important and valuable skill. To achieve success in any endeavor we must be able to tolerate critical feedback and learn from it. However, receiving criticism is difficult for most people. Upon receiving criticism we feel vulnerable and become defensive and thereby miss opportunities to benefit from feedback. This webinar will help you explore why we become defensive, deliver tips for knowing when your 'hot button' has been pushed and how to accept and integrate useful criticism.
