♡ Luncheon Meeting with DTI Sec. Ramon Lopez

Venue Sarika Function Room, Dusit Thani Manila
Description In December 2018, the Asian Development Bank projected that the Philippines will continue to be among the fastest growing economies in ASEAN and globally in the years ahead.

While these notable measures are expected to make the Philippines a more attractive investment destination, several reforms are needed to be put in place for the country to fully maximize its potential.

The ECCP Luncheon Meeting with Department of Trade and Industry Secretary Ramon Lopez will be an excellent avenue to learn from DTI and discuss topics from importanct to the European-Philippine business community, with special emphasis on the following:

Implementation of the Ease of Doing Business

♡ EQ Workshop: Self Management for Maximum Effectiveness

Time 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
Venue TO Be Announced
Description For several decades, one of the greatest corporate dilemmas was why some otherwise smart employees fail. Prior to identifying EQ (Emotional Quotient), IQ has always been assumed to lead to success in any professional endeavor. However, the corporate world is littered with the unremarkable careers of intellectuals destined to be exiled into corporate backwoods. On the other hand, there is a whole bunch of individuals who are in some ways academically challenged who rise to the very top of their chosen fields.

Empirical research in a variety of organizations across different industries has boosted the argument that emotional intelligence (EQ or EI) and not IQ is the most important factor in determining career success.

Unfortunately, most training stems from the academic model of education and therefore doesn't focus on EQ. Here now is a program that is geared towards assessing, explaining and reinforcing belief systems that are consistent with high EQ.

EQ is that part of intelligence which has something to do with how we manage ourselves and our relationships with others. It is the factor that determines motivation, improves creativity, enhances teamwork, drives our goals, and boosts our influence.

This highly effective program starts with an assessment of each participant's base line EQ and allows them to view their beliefs vis-à-vis EQ philosophy. Participants can then compare what beliefs work and don't work, allowing them to reflect on what they need to change. It challenges participants to create new personal philosophies that will improve their EQ, and provide a team system to reinforce the behavioral changes underlying the new belief systems.

Program Outline
Historical Perspective: How EQ Complements IQ Self Awareness & Control

Gaining awareness of one's values and core beliefs
Knowing one's emotions Self-Control & Self Mastery
Channeling Negative and Positive Emotions
Anticipating and Planning Emotional Reactions to Stress

Empathy
Understanding others' perspectives
Sensitizing one's self to how others feel
Maintaining one's perspectives while
Understanding others' belief system

Interpersonal Expertise
Creating true relationships with others
Being forthright in expressing feelings, even negative ones
Building relationships
Caring, Support, Concern for Team Mates
Resolving Conflict
Developing Networks

Personal Influence
Providing inspiration through words and action
Exerting influence to meet one's goals
Confront concerns that affect relationships and goals
Developing Personal Motivation and Initiative

Mastery of Vision
Setting Directions based on personal philosophy
Communicating and Articulating with Passion
Developing resilience and strength
Overcoming obstacles
Developing consistency between behaviors and beliefs
