- Emotional Intelligence Event on April 21 Geared To Helping Workplace Leaders More Effectively Support Staff -

(COBOURG) – If you want to develop the emotional smarts to better manage, support and lead employees, then mark April 21st on your calendar.

That’s the day that workplace relations specialist and noted author Mary Ann Baynton will be in Cobourg to help workplace leaders develop emotional intelligence skills. The Workplace Wellness in Northumberland Committee, along with the Haliburton, Kawartha, Pine Ridge District Health Unit, is organizing an informative workshop that is ideal for managers, supervisors, employers and leaders in local workplaces:

WHAT: ‘Emotional Intelligence: Strategies for Leaders’ Workshop

(Presented by: Workplace Wellness in Northumberland Committee)

WHEN: Thursday, April 21, 9 am to 3 pm (Registration starts at 8:30 am)

WHERE: Cobourg Lions Centre (157 Elgin St. E.)

WHY: Workplace relations specialist Mary Ann Baynton will promote the concept of ‘emotional intelligence’ to better lead staff. The workshop will offer practical strategies to help workplace leaders: communicate effectively, understand emotional triggers, and manage the reactions and emotions (especially negative thoughts) of their staff and employees. Takeaway resources are also provided.

TO JOIN: Cost is $125 per person (includes lunch, refreshments and takeaway resources). A discounted rate of $100 per person is available for groups of five or more individuals. To register, call the Northumberland United Way at (905) 372-6955, toll-free at 1-800-833-0002 or by email at People can also click here for more information.

“Given the challenges of supporting the different emotions, mental and physical health issues, capabilities, perceptions, and expectations of individual employees in the workplace, it’s virtually impossible to effectively manage each person the same way,” Baynton says. “There is growing recognition that improving emotional intelligence is one clear way to strive towards excellence in managing, supporting and leading people.”
