Emotional Intelligence (EI) is about understanding and managing your emotions, along with the ability to establish and maintain relationships with others. Law Enforcement, Corrections, Parole or Courts are a relationship-driven profession. Individuals may work on their EI competencies but do we work EI into the organizational culture?

Recent events have focused attention on relationships outside the internal agency structure. The pressure to “be nice” along with the appearance of a lack of organizational support creates stress throughout the organization. The organization while a thing, is made up of people. Organizations thrive or fail through culture. Is the organization supportive, caring and respectful of its members or focused on maintaining the status quo?

Our webinar focus on internal relationships and how to develop EI as part of the organizational culture. We will look at the impact of perception from a top-down/bottom-up approach and how that affects emotion.  Discuss how empathy is a major player in motivation. And how to develop a more transparent communication process within the organization.
