  • Emotional intelligence: is it more relevant than we think? Emotional intelligence: is it more relevant than we think? Fiona Ferguson (L&D Manager, Tesco) and Nikhita Dost (Consultant, OPP) Recorded: Jun 30 2016 32 mins
    Emotional Intelligence is a concept that has attracted both popularity and criticism in the business world. A major challenge that HR, L&D and consultancy professionals face is demonstrating the effectiveness of what is considered “soft” skills training. Key questions remain: Can emotional intelligence be developed? Should it be trained? What is the impact of developing Emotional Intelligence for individuals, the organisation and customers?

    In this webcast, join Fiona Ferguson (L&D Manager, Tesco) and Nikhita Dost (Consultant, OPP) as they share insights from implementing and evaluating Emotional Intelligence training for leaders at Tesco. They will discuss links between Emotional Intelligence and MBTI theory, resilience and customer focus. Their findings suggest Emotional Intelligence training may have a wider reach than we think, helping to promote a better customer experience.
  • Everyday stress: avoiding, surviving, mastering Everyday stress: avoiding, surviving, mastering Penny Moyle, CEO of OPP, and John Hackston, Head of Research Recorded: Apr 22 2016 47 mins
    We can all get stressed from time to time. Sometimes things really boil over, what MBTI users call ‘being in the Grip’, but much more often we just have to manage the everyday stresses of life.

    In this webinar, Penny Moyle, CEO of OPP, and John Hackston, Head of Research, will take you through how, when we become stressed, an over-reliance on our strengths means that we don’t perform at our best, but how an awareness of our MBTI Type will help us to avoid, survive and master the effects of stress. They will also show you how to use new imagery and resources to explain these concepts to others.

    You don’t need to be a qualified MBTI Practitioner to participate in this webinar, but it will help if you know your MBTI Type preference.
