Emotional Intelligence and Rapport BuildingTo get the best from our working relationships, we need to be self-aware and understand how our words, actions and feelings impact those around us. Listening skills and empathy play a vital role in understanding other people’s perspectives, which in turn provides the bedrock for successful networking and collaboration. In this 7-minute podcast, Sukh Pabial suggests questions to ask ourselves as well as practical approaches for developing stronger working relationships. Sukh Pabial is an occupational psychologist by training and a practitioner in positive psychology and emotional intelligence.
