PSI - The impact of Emotional Intelligence in the workplace

PSI’s masterclass started by inviting attendees to consider the extent to which agile is being adopted within organisations. Then, using the concept of emotional intelligence, PSI led delegates in an exploration of how mindset can create an agile climate and decrease defensive behaviours. Through an interactive workshop based on a specific work challenge, delegates explored how people need to feel and what beliefs they need to hold in order to be more flexible, adaptable and innovative. The session showed delegates how their organisations can create a journey to agile ways of working – changing how work is done, and leading others to lasting mindset change.
