The Importance of Emotional Intelligence for Health, Safety, and Environment with Dr. Britt Andreatta
Almost all EHS professionals have “heard” about Emotional Intelligence or EI. But not nearly as many are aware of the benefits, in some cases tremendously significant benefits that training on EI can provide.
Dr. Britt Andreatta is an expert in EI and conducts workshops and training sessions for managers and leaders in Emotional Intelligence, and how to bring it in to the workplace.
She will also the explain the connection between mental health and Emotional Intelligence, as well as the potential synergy that exists between the two.
And finally, as you can probably guess, there are many aspects of emotional Intelligence that can affect behaviour, and as a result health and safety performance.
This is a very interesting, educational, and (what I found) “illuminating“ conversation with one of the world’s leading experts in this field.
