Our Approach

Problem Statement

The impact of COVID-19 on the workforce has significantly impacted employee well-being. Organizations are tasked with finding solutions to address the immediate needs of the post-pandemic workforce (Hite & McDonald, 2020). The current workforce landscape includes new work behavior trends, uncertainty, and role ambiguity, negatively impacting employee well-being. Job demand theory propagates the two reinforcements of organizational outcomes: job demands and resources (Akanni et al., 2020). Job demands deplete employee resources and, therefore, negatively impact well-being. In contrast, job resources neutralize the negative effect on employee well-being (Akanni et al., 2020). Job resources include learning opportunities to increase emotional intelligence within the organization (Akanni et al., 2020). If emotional intelligence is cultivated, then employee well-being will increase. Increasing EQ is at the heart of everything we do.

Virtual Self-leadership Program

 Implementing an online professional development program using the self-leadership framework can serve as a meta-competency to cultivate emotional intelligence. Self-leadership is a self-influence process where an individual employs a wide range of skills, such as cognitive reframing, self-observation, motivation, and self-reward strategies directed toward one’s goals (Krampitz et al., 2023). Participants will take an employee well-being assessment before the professional development program. Employees will attend (1) 45-minute webinars for six weeks to learn self-leadership competencies. After the program, employee well-being will be re-assessed. Professional development opportunities that increase employee well-being will result in a workforce that will be better equipped to address future unexpected events and be more resilient in coping with the adjustments of the post-pandemic workforce (Hite & McDonald, 2020).

Emotional Intelligence

Research has shown that our success at work or in our personal lives depends 80% on emotional intelligence and only 20% on intellect. While our intellectual capacities help us solve problems, make calculations, or process information, emotional intelligence allows us to be more creative and use emotions to solve problems. Our emotions represent the factors that significantly influence how we react, make decisions, relate to our system of values, and communicate with others. Our lunch & learn webinars, effective communication, strategic problem solving, stress management, and emotional literacy are each designed to build emotional intelligence by focusing on one skill at a time.
