It’s the time of year when we all start to feel the pressure. Diaries start to fill with end of year events, and for some, incomplete goals trigger a need to work harder, and faster. Trying to fit more into everyday stretches our capacity, and puts tension into already busy workplaces. We start to ask, what can help us remain effective and high functioning, when there’s just so much to fit in to each day? How can we manage the overwhelm?
Join us in this insightful, interactive EQ Cafe to practice emotional intelligence as we discover answers to these important questions, and see how to use “emotional intelligence” as a powerful ingredient for “growing on the inside” and building our capacity for flourishing.
You will learn:
The meaning of growth for success (let’s define success …)
How EQ supports personal and professional growth
What does it mean to grow as a society and world, and how could we do so?
Who: Anyone interested in practicing emotional intelligence -- for themselves, at work/home/school or as a coach/trainer/educator.
25% of employees have reported that conflict or the avoidance of conflict has resulted in sickness or avoidance of work. Absenteeism and presenteeism account for an average of 3.2 days lost productivity per worker per year.
That's big hit to your:
bottom line profits;
your state of well-being
Case study after case study reveal the economic and emotional cost of conflict in the workplace. A recent report revealed conflict in Australia costs businesses $10 B per year! In addition, if not managed, conflict can progress to bullying,and new workplace health and safety legislation places a duty on workplaces to eliminate or minimise, as far as reasonably practicable, these risks to health and safety. This duty includes the implementation of strategies to prevent workplace bullying, and not being able to demonstrate that you have done so can land you in hot water.
A recent global Gallup survey revealed only 13% of employees (or 1 in 8) worldwide are engaged at work, psychologically committed to their jobs and likely to be making positive contributions to their organizations.
This finding is the result of a 142-country study on the State of the Global Workplace. The majority of employees worldwide i.e. 63% are "not engaged," meaning they lack motivation and are less likely to invest discretionary effort in organisational goals or outcomes. More concerning is that 24% are "actively disengaged", and this results in unproductive employees at work who typically spread negativity to co-workers. Sound familiar?
Nine times out of ten when our phone rings, it's for assistance to fire an employee because the business owner has had enough. Wouldn't it be great if you never got to that stage, and had highly functioning, productive employees, adding value to your bottom line?
