EQ Improvement Program
Numerous studies have shown that high levels of EQ can lead to:
- Improved physical and mental health
- The development of sound workplace relationships
- Employees being better able to cope with high demands and stress
- Increased levels of engagement and discretionary effort
- Reduction in employee turnover and absenteeism
- Increased creativity and innovation
This programme has been devised according to the guidelines recommended by The Consortium for Research on Emotional Intelligence in Organizations, and is structured using the AFAR methodology – Assess, Facilitate, Apply, Re-assess.
The programme consists of a pre- and post-course assessment, a comprehensive set of training presentations and experiential exercises, and 8 weeks of on-going on-the-job application of skills learned.
Workplace Motivation Improvement Programme
Motivation is a self-discipline; it must come from within. However, it is possible to create an environment in which one is able to develop for oneself the habits of self-motivation.
Sadly, many organisations have not seen much – if any – improvement in the motivation levels of their staff after having a motivational speaker address them. This is because the speaking engagement is usually a “one-off”, with no follow-up opportunities to help the participants develop and practice the skills necessary for self-improvement.
The programme is based on the principles of Emotional Intelligence, and is structured using the philosophy of The Three R’s for Habit Formation – Reminder, Routine, Reward. The programme consists of a comprehensive set of training presentations and experiential exercises, and on-going on-the-job application of skills learned.
These programmes are devised and presented by Kevin Rodgers. Even after leaving the teaching profession and following a career as an IT Systems Developer and then Specialist IT Recruiter, Kevin retained his passion for developing people. He is now consulting as an EQ Coach, focused on sharing with others how they can use an understanding of their emotions to guide their thinking and behaviour to achieve improved work performance and personal wellbeing.
