Project Description

"When we strive to become better than we are, everything around us becomes better too."

The 24 months project DISAWORK – Development and Implementation of a Social Emotional Approach to the Workplace – aims at raising the awareness on the importance of Emotional Intelligence in the labor market, providing high quality management in emotional skills to European entrepreneurs, managers and SMEs, as well as their workers and employees.

The project takes off from the assumption that in an everchanging world, the job industry also changes and it requires new skills that can be adapted to new contexts and needs. Entrepreneurs, executives, managers and workers are required to develop new skills and strategies in order to stay in the market and be more able to set new quality standards and fight the risk of unemployment.

In this context Emotional Intelligence is a priority, considered as a new, important and valuable skill and an extra weapon to keep the level of employability, but also the standards of quality in a new economic and social scenario. By creating training tools and for improving Emotional

Intelligence skills, the partner consortium aims to achieve the overall objective of the project, which is to highlight the importance of Emotional Intelligence Skills in the new global scenario.
