The world of work is changing, with an ever-greater need for improved leadership capability. The World Economic Forum predicts that 42% of current core skills will be outdated by 2022, and that, ‘Emotional Intelligence, leadership, and social influence will see an outsized increase in demand.’ Since its inception nearly 30 years ago, Emotional Intelligence (EI) has evolved and will become ever more established as a core attribute to meet the demands of a constantly changing workplace. The presentation will discuss why EI matters, how it relates to the current and future needs of organisations, what is the current status and value of EI for the assessment and development of people within the workplace, and how developable is EI for individuals and organisations seeking to create a positive organisational climate.

About the organiser

The Division of Industrial-Organizational Psychology (DIOP) was established in May 2000 under the Hong Kong Psychological Society (HKPS). We are a professional association that promotes the identity, professional status and recognition of industrial-organizational (I-O) psychologists in Hong Kong.

With our prime focus to further develop members' professional competences in I-O psychology, and to promote the discipline to the public, industry and potential service recipients, DIOP organizes regular events to update all levels of our members, HR practitioners, and the general public the current topics in the field. We collaborate with a wide range of disciplines in our events to discuss the latest emerging trends in the workplace and pick up new insights to thrive in this ever changing world.

If you are hosting an event that you believe would be beneficial to our members or the wider I-O Psychology community, please feel free to get in touch with us at
