Emotional Intelligence and Mindfulness for the Modern Workplace


Emotional intelligence and mindfulness are well respected ideas and concepts used extensively over the past few decades to help individuals, teams and organisations work more effectively at numerous levels.

This one day workshop will help develop a greater understanding of what emotional intelligence and mindfulness are all about, as well as how they fit at a personal, business and organisational level.

The session is led by Martin J. Smith PhD. Martin is a senior lecturer in psychotherapy at Nottingham Trent University and independent training consultant, specialising in the understanding and development of better individual and team workplace behaviour - and also a greater understanding of presenting personality types and attitudes.

He draws from both a deep understanding of the psychology of people but also past real management skills applied in large organisations at various levels.

An Acas senior adviser will also provide input on the implications for workplace procedures and good practice.

Business need

Making links with positive psychology, current coaching practices and ideas around improving resilience and overall coping skills, this programme will benefit managers and HR professionals at all levels of an organisation.
