Positive HR – Using the Science of Emotional Intelligence in HR Practice

  • Perceiving, understanding, using and managing emotions will enhance your HR practice.
  • EI capability can grow, and learning the foundations of EI is crucial for wellbeing and performance.

In this programme you will learn specific abilities to help you to monitor your own and others’ emotions and use this information to support outcomes.

Modern neuroscience has turned around the way we think about emotions. We now know that emotions play a critical role in influencing and guiding our thinking and behaviour – what we think, how we think, how we make decisions and how we act on them.

Evidence from the field of EI states that rational thinking and decision-making depend on input from emotions. Decisions are never made ‘unemotionally’, and actions are never fully ‘rational’.

“Far from interfering with rationality…the absence of emotion and feeling can break down rationality and make wise decision making almost impossible.” Damasio, A. (1994).

During change, growth, downsizing, or developing other new ways of working an HR practitioner needs emotional intelligence for wellbeing and to help team members navigate the future.

The programme is delivered in three ‘live’ virtual classroom sessions by Melanie Weir, one of our most experienced facilitators and HR experts. The classroom time is two hours, (Including a short break) and attendees receive interactive workbooks, an EI self-assessment tool, research papers and additional learning resources to further their knowledge in the field.
