Written by admin, November 17, 2017

November 17, 2017 – with Trent University’s Dr. James Parker on December 6

Being able to read and manage one’s own emotions and those of others is essential in creating and maintaining a psychologically healthy and safe workplace. Emotional Intelligence (EI) has been talked about for several years but what is it really?  And, how do you develop it in yourself and others?

Dr. James Parker, faculty member in the Department of Psychology at Trent University has been studying this concept and will share his insights with us on Wednesday, December 6 as part of the Health at Work Breakfast Series.

This information session is ideal for HR professionals, occupational health and safety specialists, managers, and employees.  The session will be held at Peterborough Public Health, 185 King Street.  Registration and continental breakfast begins at 8:00 a.m. with the formal session running from 8:30 to 10:00 a.m.  The session fee is $15 and advance registration is required by November 30. Space is limited.  Learn more here.
