Building Up Your Emotional Intelligence
By its very nature, the workplace sometimes involves conflict and stress. Even mundane day-to-day work activities require negotiation and compromise.

EI is a positive force that can have significant impact on you, your team, and your organization. In this course, you'll learn what EI is and how it drives personal excellence in the workplace. You will learn some best practices and strategies to become aware of your emotions and use that awareness to manage your behavior.

Working Well with Others
At some point, all of us will encounter competing personalities at work, all vying to get things done their own way. Interpersonal differences and personal perspectives, whether with a manager or a colleague, can increase stress, drain energy, impact morale, and affect productivity and happiness. But there are strategies for mitigating tension and building stronger, more trusting relationships, such as adjusting our own behavior and understanding the situations and behavior of others that can challenge us. In this course, you'll learn how to assess, identify, and manage your own behavioral style to help you avoid and control conflict before it happens. You'll also investigate how to handle common situations that provoke conflict at work, how to work effectively with different personality types, and how to build habits to help you handle interpersonal conflict in the workplace with grace and patience.
