Programme title: [Get Professional] EQ at Work

In the World Economic Forum’s 2018 report on the ‘Future of Jobs’, Emotional Intelligence (EQ) was identified as a key skill required for the future world of work.

This workshop will help you gain an understanding of EQ, how it applies to the workplace, and enable you to pick up strategies to enhance your own Emotional Intelligence. You will be introduced to the four EQ skills and each of the 12 EQ competencies, with real-life business examples, and have the opportunity to develop your own EQ action plan.

This programme is suitable for persons with visual impairments and provides accessible PowerPoint slides. For persons with visual impairments, please email accessible@nlb.gov.sg to register and to obtain the slides.
