Emotional Skills Training for Work

Emotional skills training for work? You have been learning skills since you were born and most of us have enough to get us through the day. Do we need more training?

Sadly, some people grow up in circumstances that don’t help them learn many skills. People who develop good skills enjoy huge advantages, so it makes sense to keep learning as we grow more experienced.

As awareness of emotional intelligence grows, research is revealing its importance. Your EI skills are more important in your chance of succeeding in your career than any other factor. If you want a responsible or demanding career, or to work in an industry that keeps you on your toes, then good EI skills are a must. The good news it that you can continue to learn new skills throughout life. What’s more, our increasing understanding of neuro-psychology is making it easier to learn!

Learning by doing – the best way to learn emotional skills.

An increasing number of self-help books teach emotional skills. For people who love reading books, and thinking deeply about what they read, that is a great way to learn. But if it was that easy to learn from a book, we would all know everything we needed by now. We are not all great book learners, and everyone is different in their background and experience; one size does not fit all. Emotional skills training for work can be a game changer.

Learning EI skills is not difficult, but it happens inside you, not in the pages of a book. While it seems easy when you have been shown how it works, not being familiar with your inner world means that learning on your own can be hit-and-miss. You can read about driving a car, but you learn to drive in a car with an experienced teacher beside you. This is an experienced professional who shows you how to drive the car; you learn from their experience.

Emotional skills training with Campbell Education is just like that, it is more akin to driving lessons than anything else, in fact, the first session in technical performance training is actually called Driver Training. You learn by doing, and your coach shows you how to do it.

Basic Level TPT – the emotional toolkit you need for work

Technical Performance Training (TPT for short) provides emotional skills training developed specifically for work. A single hour of live online training can change the way you understand and manage your emotional life. Driver Training puts you in control of your emotional engine.

A Basic course (3 hours of live training online) provides you with enough skills to manage yourself and take care of yourself in a demanding social environment. Just those three sessions can ensure that your emotions are not a problem for yourself – or for others. It shows how emotions shape your feelings and motivate you. You begin to see how they shape the world around us. Good basic skills put us in a strong position to manage and improve the social exchanges we take part in every day.

TPT training may be designed for work, but the skills are transferrable to every area of life; if you are trained on behalf of your employer it is probably the most useful work based training you will ever get.

Why do people need to learn this? Emotions don’t belong at work.

Humans and their emotions are inseparable. Emotion is – literally – the energy that moves you, the juice in your engine, the pep in your pepper. Denying, suppressing, ignoring or avoiding this aspect of life is not only damaging for health, happiness and wellbeing. A poor emotional environment impairs learning, suppresses creativity, hampers social cooperation and limits productivity at work.

Culture has changed. While older generations are still operating under the buttoned-down, nothing-to-see-here regime of the past, the young are not. The younger generations are tuning in to authenticity and social responsiveness. In this business environment emotional intelligence is king; so ignore it at your peril.

Emotional intelligence is essential for learning from experience. No modern workplace is static. Learning, unlearning and relearning are constant processes in the working environment. This cannot happen in a fearful or constrained environment. Good EI skills accelerate learning and free creativity in ways that go way beyond the mundane concerns of achieving mental and emotional wellbeing. Emotional skills training for work can bring the skills you need, and it doesn’t take a lifetime to learn them!

If you want to unstick your culture, your systems or your communications, you need to unstick your staff. If you want to do that – you need to unstick their emotional skills.

How can I find out more about emotional intelligence training?

The Campbell Education website has a Library of free material and course information for you to find out more about emotional intelligence, emotional health and wellbeing, emotional culture and emotional skills training.

If you want to meet Helen Campbell to ask her in person on a Zoom call you can easily do so. You can book a free place on a Wednesday evening Q&A at 7pm London time with your query. You can also book a personal discovery call with her on her scheduler. If you send her an email via the office it will be answered as quickly as possible. If you want to explore her profile on LinkedIn you will find a wealth of information and can message her through her inbox. This can be faster than relying on email.

Is it worth paying for emotional skills training when information is so easily available?

One of the things that clients and research participants say more than anything is how surprised they are. Why have they not been taught these things before? The information is out there, but the training has not been available. Learning is easy, powerful and the benefits are immediate in training, which is not the case when you are learning by trial and error. Training is life changing, empowering and wholly beneficial.

Money is an issue for some people, and as ever, they will set their spending priorities accordingly. No client or participant who has been asked (and we do ask) has ever considered the price to be more than the value of the service. In many cases coaching clients say that the value is beyond price, the cost is no longer a consideration.

For those in public service there is a reduced tariff to thank and support our vital services. Full information on services and prices, and the current Preferred Professions list, is easily available on the website.

What are my options in learning emotional intelligence?

If you want a fast introduction you can book a single hour of emotional skills training for work called Driver Training. This will show you how to stay in control in the moment. If you want a grounding in the skills you need for work, a three-hour Basic TPT Course will provide them. Basic TPT includes Driver Training. Anyone who has done the first session can pay the top-up fee and continue. If you loved your skills training,advanced coaching is available for approved clients.

People who wish to develop more deeply can opt for Personal Development or Executive Coaching rather than training. This is a more personal service which focuses on the client’s life and issues. It is a good choice for developing the soft skills that contribute to excellent staff management. It delivers the same skills as emotional skills training for work, and more. As a private and confidential listening ear, coaching is a good choice for managers. Working in a competitive and stressful environment can result in wear and tear and requires complex skills. Coaching is a great place to explore what is happening at work and learn the skills that make you more effective.

Emotional Intelligence is good for you!

Emotional skills training for work is valuable because good basic EI helps you to beat stress and anxiety from the inside out. People with good skills are sensitive to the emotional atmosphere around them. They are self-supporting, and not subject to anxiety and stress that affects those who cannot self regulate. Their skills make them careful of the needs of others. This means they are alert to toxic behaviours that negatively affect the workplace. Emotionally Intelligent people do not bully, because they know why it is not a useful strategy at work. These are all essential skills in management positions.

Some people are more interested in developing emotional health and wellbeing. Emotional Health Training (EHT) with Campbell education is more suitable for their needs. For advice on which of these is most suitable for you, get in touch. It could be the most useful question you ever ask.
