Furthermore, as the pace of change increases and work makes greater demands on a person’s cognitive and emotional resources, this particular set of abilities will become increasingly important.
Staff with emotional intelligence training will decrease their stress related to the new challenges and will allow regional staff to increase productivity. Furthermore, this training is expected to develop the ability of staff to perceive, understand, and regulate emotions. As a result of this, staff should achieve a higher level of customer service skills. It is also expected the Emotional Intelligence Training will provide staff with competencies to handle difficult situations.
Scope of Work/Requirement: The contractor shall perform off-site classroom instruction and focus group participation on Emotional Intelligence to include technical expertise, materials, supplies, and certified trainers/coaches. The following list details the objectives that should be reached within the training:
” Ability to manage emotions in order to improve listening skills
” Ability to improve interpersonal relationship
” Ability to deal with providing unfavorable information
” Ability to deal with rapid change
” Ability to manage feelings and handle stress
” Ability to learn how to manage the emotional aspect of conflict
” Ability to manage emotions in order to achieve desired outcomes.
” Ability to recognize, express and cope with feelings and emotions of self and others
” Ability to cope with the demands and pressures of the supervisor’s/leader’s role
” Ability to react proactively by building relationships and leading by example
” Ability to focus on understanding others before seeking to be understood
” Ability to pose incisive questions and challenge when deemed necessary
” Ability to support others to set and achieve goals that benefit both the team and the individual
” Ability to motivate and encourage others to greater achievement
” Ability to maintain a positive mind-set in times of change and in challenging situations
In addition, the contractor shall provide verification of attendee’s presence at the training sessions, all pertinent training material, handouts and audiovisual for required training session, and provide sign in sheets to indicate employee presence at the training sessions.
