EQ and Poor Performance

This workshop teaches how to use emotional intelligence in handling performance problems. Most seminars only talk about general principles. This workshop shows you, simply, what steps to follow, with practice and feedback. (If necessary, this course can be facilitated with a labour attorney)

WINNING COMBINATION – winning conflict handling techniques and tips from a practicing psychologist combined with practical steps for fairly handling poor work performance from a hands-on labour lawyer

YOUR EQ ANALYSED – have your “skill at regulating your own and others’ feelings to guide thought and action” analysed by an internationally accredited psychologist.

PRACTICAL INSIGHT – into your style of communication and conflict handling, at work and home

REALISTIC PRACTICES – in a non-threatening simulated work environment handling typical excuses offered by staff confronted with their own incompetence, with professional personal feedback.

PRACTICAL AND FAIR STEPS – practical, easy-to-use steps which are Labour Law and Good Practice Code compliant for improving performance, or dismissing staff for incompetence.

HIGH PARTICIPATION – maximum 20 participants ensures maximum interaction, participation and feedback.

FLEXIBLE TIMING – a choice of two workshops. Each is 2 non-consecutive days so you have time for your job in between, to apply what you´ve learnt on day and bring your problems to day 2 for personal help.
