Emotional intelligence and self belief
Sophia Bourne, Susan Edwards
We will start with understanding the concept and applications of emotional intelligence, to lead to greater understanding of yourself and your abilities, and appreciate its importance in the healthcare environment. We will also look at how to develop more emotionally intelligent environments by seeking ways of encouraging self- and other-awareness in how we manage upwards and outwards.

Working in healthcare isn’t the same as working in many other professions. Pressure can be felt at all corners of the organisation and this can take its toll; both physically and psychologically. Professor Maben describes one of the challenges of working in healthcare as the ability to cope with the three d’s, 'distress, disease and death' on a regular basis. With this context in mind, building resilience and well-being is critical not only for individual personal health but also for patients and teams. This interactive session will concentrate on your strengths and resilience, reviewing new research that you will be able to instantly apply to your working lives.

Here we look at the theory around stress and where these feelings and responses originate from. We will be exploring human functioning and the role of emotions in what we do and how we process aspects of our environment and experience. Ultimately, we want to change how we feel and respond so we will be looking at how we change thinking to effect behavioural change.

Research suggests that individuals are better able to deal with pressure, demand and challenges when they have adequate social support in place. This workshop is about more than creating a network of support, instead equipping you with coaching skills and the framework to set up your own active support networks on your return. We will be understanding and applying coaching approaches during the workshop in different ways: co-coaching with reflective partners and group coaching within “Balint”-style groups, in order that you experience coaching and being coached.
