Augusta University Health offers workshops to help you develop emotional intelligence

A brain

The concept of emotional intelligence — the ability to identify and manage one’s own emotions and the emotions of others — has been regarded by some experts as one of the secrets to success within an organization.

Augusta University Health‘s Center for Patients and Families embodies this idea as they focus on finding unique ways to build collaborative partnerships between staff, health care providers, administrators, the patient and families.

One of the ways they are accomplishing this is by offering E3: Culture Transformation, a three-hour workshop designed to teach AU Health employees how to use emotional intelligence and empathy in their communication. Participants will explore the various techniques on how to understand and manage emotions and human behavior to have successful encounters with others. The training is one of the many ways AU Health is creating a culture of making an impact on every person, every encounter, every time.

  • 1-4 p.m., Augusta University Medical Center, Room BI-4081
