Seminar underlines role of personality, emotional intelligence in workplace

The Brunei-United States Association (BUSA) recently organised a seminar on the crucial interplay between personality and emotional intelligence in the workplace, in commemoration of World Mental Health Day.

The event held in Kampong Kiarong was themed ‘Empowering Heart, Inspiring Change.’

The seminar served as a sequel to a previous event that focused on understanding the intricacies of the human mind and its impact on workplace dynamics through understanding different colour brain processes.

Public affairs officer of the US Embassy in Brunei Darussalam Katherine Ntiamoah was among the attendees.

The seminar, led by Zulfa Hassan from the Ministry of Education, highlighted the significance of acknowledging and embracing personality and emotional differences between oneself and others as avenues for self-improvement.

“Such recognition and respect for these differences provide opportunities to harness the collective strengths of a team and foster an inclusive work culture.

“Awareness is a powerful catalyst for improved communication and collaboration, paving the way for a more harmonious, inclusive, and productive work environment,” he said.

The event concluded with a gesture of appreciation from Ntiamoah to Zulfa Hassan, followed by closing remarks from BUSA President Sha binti Haji Zulazmi.

Established in the 30th year of diplomatic relations between the US and Brunei Darussalam, BUSA continues to uphold the spirit of mutual respect, cooperation and friendship between the two countries.
