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.

Positive Personality Profiles: Myers Briggs Temperament Indicator (MBTI) Insights to Understand Yourself and Others
The Myers Briggs Temperament Indicator (MBTI) profile is a non-judgmental tool used for discussion of people's behavioral differences. When you participate in this MBTI program, you'll be asked to complete a series of questions that produce a report about your personality and behavior. Bring that profile to the workshop. Understanding your MBTI profile will increase your self-knowledge, how you respond to conflict, what motivates you, what causes you stress and how you solve problems. Applying what you learn about MBTI profiles will improve working relationships by recognizing the communication needs of others.
