It is time for our fourth discussion in this course. This discussion is about the importance of emotional intelligence in the workplace (see page 76 in textbook).
Communicating for success is vital for success in the workplace. This discussion is about emotional intelligence and the positive effects at work.
As you studied the chapter on emotions, it is important to manage emotions according to role expectations and social norms (page 265 in textbook). The goal is to create positive emotions (see page 255 in textbook) that create positive feelings when interacting with co-workers and customers alike.
For this week’s discussion please address the following questions:
What would be your part in contributing to a positive work environment with your co-workers? If you do not have work experience, discuss positive emotions you experienced that you might have had participating on a sports team or in a volunteer capacity such as a fundraising event.
What nonverbal messages (body language, tone of voice, eye contact, smiling) can you send that would create an enriching emotional environment. Ultimately, what strategies would you use to create your “dream job?”
Remember, arguably we all might have had in some way or another unsatisfactory experiences in the workplace but the focus in this discussion is on creating and maintaining a positive and polite work environment.
Please contribute your primary post of approximately 250-350 words to our discussion and I will send two post to make two Responses of approximately 100-130 words each
