DISAWORK: Bringing EQ in the Workplace

May 2, 2022News

What is emotional intelligence, and why is it important? On this course, you’ll explore how emotional intelligence influences not only our relationships with others but also with ourselves.

DISAWORK aims at raising the awareness on the importance of Emotional Intelligence in the labor market, providing high quality management in emotional skills to European entrepreneurs, managers, and SMEs, as well as their workers and employees. The project takes off from the assumption that in an everchanging world, the job industry also changes, and it requires new skills that can be adapted to new contexts and needs. Entrepreneurs, executives, managers, and workers are required to develop new skills and strategies to stay in the market and be more able to set new quality standards and fight the risk of unemployment. In this context Emotional Intelligence is a priority, considered as a new, important, and valuable skill and an extra weapon to keep the level of employability, but also the standards of quality in a new economic and social scenario.

In this course you will learn about 10 emotional skills as well as how it can be used to develop relationships and guide self-development.
