Episode 0 – What is Emotional Intelligence? Dr Ben Palmer breaks it down to Marie El Daghl.

If you’re new to the topic of emotional intelligence, this is the right place to start. On EI at work, you’ll hear real stories, results and business insights on the power of EI in the workplace. But before we get started, it’s important to know exactly what EI is. In this opening episode, hosts Marie El Daghl and EI Expert Dr Ben Palmer, talk about the science of emotions, what EI is, who should develop it, and how it makes a difference.

 Episode 1 – Emotional Intelligence and Its Impact on Aged Care Quality, Standards and Workers

The Aged Care sector supports over 1.3 million Australians and has a workforce of over 400,000 people. Residential facilities and home care services are trusted to look after our most loved ones, yet this sizeable and critical sector is failing to fulfil basic duties of care.

In February 2021, the Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety released its final report titled, ‘Care, Dignity and Respect’. This revealed harrowing information on the dire state of the sector. From residents being neglected and abused, to staff being untrained and burned out; the shortcomings of Aged Care services are clearer than ever.

Can EI help to improve the quality of care in aged care? Leading aged care provider IRT Group is banking on it.
