Lagos trains, tasks employees on emotional intelligence
Lagos State Ministry of Home Affairs organised a three-day retreat for workers to ensure the staffers are emotionally stable and well-motivated to discharge their functions.
In his opening remarks at the retreat, which had ‘Leading with Emotional Intelligence for Organisational Success’ as theme, the Commissioner for Home Affairs, Anofiu Elegushi, said the retreat became imperative to ensure that the workforce is motivated and sensitive to emotional wellbeing.
Elegushi maintained that it was delightful to note that all the middle and senior management workers of the ministry, after a very busy period of Ramadan and Eid-el-Fitr celebration, gathered to strategize and reinvent ways on charting a better course to enhance optimal delivery of service and governance to the good people of the state.
“The retreat would afford every member of staff, irrespective of their status, the opportunity to express their views on ways of improving work ethics or mode of operations that could further enhance the progress of the ministry and state government, which ordinarily wouldn’t have been possible in the office”, Elegushi said.
