Do your working relationships always run smooth? Or do you find yourself embroiled in arguments, office politics or unproductive dynamics?

If so, improving your level of self-awareness and emotional intelligence is absolutely vital.

Symposium have launched a new training workshop entitled ‘Emotional Intelligence: Self-Awareness at Work‘, the first of which will take place on 9 September in Shoreditch, London.

This 1-day course is designed for HR professionals who want to improve how they, their managers and their staff  interact and engage with others in the workplace. The course will help you improve your listening skills, develop a greater level of self-awareness and learn how to handle colleagues and customers with greater confidence, assertiveness and empathy to promote wellbeing and maximise efficiency.

You will:

  1. Learn specific tools for improving your emotional intelligence and handling challenging situations
  2. Gain increased insight into your triggers, behaviours and responses to others
  3. Understand how to handle conflict and feedback with calm, gratitude and openness
  4. Shift into a higher level of self-awareness and personal responsibility

The course leader is experienced trainer Duncan Lewin. Duncan brings a deep level of personal experience to this work. In the early part of his career, he was poor at handling feedback, handling others’ opinions and working in teams. This left him stressed and unfulfilled. Eventually the stress got too much and he began a deep, personal journey in finding a new way of relating to feedback and conflicting opinions. The effects have been huge; Duncan now actively seeks feedback, feels comfortable with conflict and has learnt how to handle even the most difficult conversations with (he hopes) assertiveness and grace.

Duncan Lewin is an ex-Deloitte consultant and continues to work with a range of illustrious clients including BT, Accenture, Exxon Mobil and Canary Wharf Group.
