Blog – Thriving in a world of distractions

By Raheela Rehman

Picture if you will, a day segmented neatly into a productive and effective eight hour work day, followed by leaving on time for your one-to-two hour fulfilling hobby, or perhaps you’ll meet friends or family after work giving them your undivided attention, maybe you’ll be picking up the children from school and run them along to their fun and enhancing after-school activities. The day then smoothly eases into the evening of leisurely unwinding and prepping up for the next day, and your head gently hits your pillow at the end of the evening for an eight hour deep sleep, to start refreshed the next morning.

In a 24 hour switched-on planet, technology driven in our waking and non-waking hours, we will endeavour to get a lot more done with a lot less, striving for professional and personal efficiency. We live in a world where people around the world are connected online resulting in information overload and competing priorities. Boxing off time is a luxury a few of us might be able to afford. Research has shown that the 9 to 5 is fast disappearing, (YouGov, 2018), almost half of people either work flexibly, job share or work compressed hours, to allow them to juggle other commitments (The Conversation).

Boosting Emotional Intelligence: Secret to Thriving in a World of Distractions and Tension

Date: 18th February 2020

Location: Lucy Cavendish College, Reception Room

Time: 8.00 – 10.00 pm

As humans, we are all driven by our emotions. Only a select few amongst us fully realise that success in all matters, whether it is the career or personal, is based squarely on our emotional intelligence.

The world as we live in now is rife with digital distractions and changing political, social and economic landscapes! It is becoming hard to stay emotionally balanced as we get sucked into these influences, both personal and social.

Come along to this interactive session to learn about the power of cultivating Emotional Intelligence and why it is crucial to your success and wellbeing. You will also take away a few foundational Self-Awareness techniques that you can apply right away to boost your emotional intelligence.

The workshop will be followed by a short CamAWISE Annual General Meeting, which all are welcome to attend.

ALL genders and non-STEMM welcome.
