Aboitiz scholars master workplace EQ

Fifty-four Cebu college scholars supported by the Aboitiz Foundation and Aboitiz units Cebu Private Power Corporation, East Asia Utilities Corporation, Therma Visayas, Inc., and Visayan Electric Co, Inc. learned more about emotional intelligence in the workplace at the first Aboitiz College Scholars Learning Series last December 21. The event, facilitated by Dr. Shiela Marie Hocson, former president of the Philippine Guidance and Counselling Association, tackled identifying one’s personality types and tendencies, personality assessment, and techniques and methods in coping up with emotionally stressful situations and environment. The Aboitiz College Scholars Learning Series is an initiative by the Aboitiz Foundation in its pursuit of scaling up projects by developing the soft skills of its scholars to equip them with the essential skills needed in the corporate world. It is part of the Aboitiz Foundation College Scholarship Program, which has already supported 2,208 scholars (current scholars: 243) in its thrust to advance business and communities by co-creating safe, empowered, and sustainable communities.
