Overview

In this 2-day course, you will discover how the frequency of certain types of emotions effect your motivation, efficiency, job satisfaction and overall quality of life. It has been scientifically proven, that emotion work is a necessary process to regulate organizationally desired behavior. In fact, Dr B. Zei’s very own research (presented at the Scientific Meeting of American Psychosomatic Society) showed that positive emotional climate improves vital aspects of our professional lives. Among those are team performance, decreasing stress levels, and overall employees’ well-being.

Who should take this course?

This class is designed for, but not limited to, individuals working within variety of industries such as human resources, marketing, sales, education, as well as anyone in leadership roles. If you are managing projects or work with people, then we are talking about you! UPG champions will enjoy the priority, when it comes to choosing the winner.
