“EI is an important factor in the workplace as it can affect work output,” Kaheeru said. “Thus, this training is a wakeup call to all the staff of UECas it equips them with tips on how to motivate and endure oneself despite frustration,how to control impulses and postpone satisfaction, how to manage feelings and keep trouble from overwhelming the ability to think and to emphasize and to hope.”

“Job performance is the aggregated value to the organization of the behavioral episodes performed by individuals over time that have positive or negative consequences for the organization. Managers high on EI can foster their employees’ creativity through interaction with them leading to a better cooperation, coordination and organizational behavior and appropriate attitudes that will enable them to provide effective and efficient service delivery,” he explained.
Kaheerufurther elaborated the five aspects of EI which includes self-awareness, self-regulation, self-motivation, empathy or social awareness, and social skills.
Meanwhile, the Secretary General Manager of UEC, Msgr John Baptist Kauta, identified the timeliness of the workshop, saying it has enhanced the skills, capabilities and knowledge of employees for doing a particular job.
