7 February 2020 - Government leaders need emotional intelligence to manage people well.

The Civil Service Commission (CSC) invites participants to the first quarter offering of the Civil Service Institute (CSI) Leadership Series entitled Emotional Intelligence and Leadership to be held on 18 March 2020 at the CSC Resource Center, Quezon City. This one-day learning and development event focuses on emotional intelligence or EI as a crucial element for leaders to motivate their people and influence their organizations.

In the field of human resource (HR) management, EI is defined as an individual’s capacity to understand and manage one’s emotions. A leader’s EI is manifested in the way he or she handles interpersonal relationships, steers organizational performance, and influences organizational culture. EI also encompasses wide-ranging leadership functions that go beyond technical skills.

The learning forum is the first of four CSI Leadership Series for 2020. Public sector executives, managers, directors, and division chiefs or those in equivalent positions are encouraged to participate.

Registration is ongoing. Interested participants are required to register online. Registration fee is Php5,000 per participant. A certificate of completion with eight (8) leadership and management training hours will be credited to participants who have successfully finished the program/course.
