EQ and Positive Psychology in the Workplace

This course was designed to develop social and emotional intelligence which will have a positive impact on job performance and the productivity of the company.  

The bottom line mentality has been a trend for so long it has become the norm.  However, many organizations now recognize the value and importance of their workplace culture.  The importance of health and the professional and personal development of employees has also been proven beneficial.  We know that employees who are positive, motivated and able to deal with the day to day stress of work will produce greater results for their organization.

There are great benefits to promoting employee strengths, creating an environment of self determination and regulating our emotional responses to others.  Emotional Intelligence and Positive Psychology teach us to effectively manage our negative emotions and even create more positive feelings such as optimism, hope, creativity and overall life satisfaction.  

Therefore, building on the psychological capital of staff can have positive effects on the overall organizational behavior. Studies have shown that self-efficacy, hope, optimism and resiliency improved performance in the workplace.

Organizations should learn to coach employees to set realistic, challenging, measureable goals.  The use of EQ and positive psychology can help people achieve these goals and enhance job performance and satisfaction.
