Ann McCracken will chair the Health @ Work Summit 2014 in London on the 12th June.
I have recently read a few articles on Counter Productive Work Behaviour – another name for inappropriate or destructive behaviour – and it seems natural to tie it in with levels of emotional intelligence. Emotionally intelligent people are less likely to speak unkindly, undermine colleagues or the organisation or become aggressive. If you have a high EQ (Emotional Quotient) you will notice your mood and the mood of others, exhibit a high self-awareness and be more likely to have a positive attitude towards life and work challenges.
[wooproduct sku=”HR167″ style=”width: 200px; margin-right:40px; float: left;”]Counter productive work behaviour undermines performance of the individual and this can have an effect on their colleagues’ performance. At any level in the workplace this is not what is required, particularly in the competitive market we currently live in.
We have recently been working with our clients on these topics through interactive workshops which have produced some “eureka” moments for delegates.
I am sure the topics at the forthcoming Health@Work Summit run by Symposium Events in June will evoke lots of “eureka” moments for all of us who will attend.
