Programme overview

Since the start of the pandemic, the continued disruption to many employees working lives due to COVID-19, whether going into work or working from home, has led to increased levels of anxiety, uncertainty, stress and in many cases, social isolation. Under normal circumstances, most people tend to be resilient and can adjust to pressure and increased demands. But with prolonged exposure to stress and uncertainty the mental and emotional skills that we all rely on to regulate our mood and make good decisions get worn down and our capacity to cope can be compromised. Reduced levels of coping makes us more susceptible to mental health difficulties. Common to all stress-related disorders is the feeling of a loss of control over one’s environment. And the stress of losing control leads to an experience of pervasive anxiety.

At its core Emotional Intelligence focuses on emotional regulation which is the ability a person has to exert control over his or her own emotional state. And the feeling of control is one of the wellsprings of mental health. By reducing the influence of negative emotions such as fear or anxiety, emotional intelligence, this fosters a calm mind and a greater cognitive focus. It provides us with access to positive emotions and more constructive behaviours in our work and personal lives.

In this 90-minute workshop,  several strategies will be presented designed to manage emotional overload and protect mental health and well-being. It will provide participants with a set of skills and strategies that will help them to stay healthy and productive during these difficult and challenging times.

  • How to recognise stress
  • Regulating your own emotional states and maintaining energy and focus
