Emotional Intelligence Workshop
A two-day workshop on Emotional Intelligence (EI) was conducted by Cdr. Adil Raghina (Retd.), who is a certified trainer on Emotional Intelligence by the Forum for Emotional Intelligence Learning (FEIL). 32 CCIans took advantage of the training to better understand and enhance workplace environment. The training focused on various aspects such as decision making, conflict management, emotional intelligence, and team functioning. Topics such as emotionally-intelligent leadership, emphatic inquiry and trust, and managing anger and negative emotions were dealt with in detail by the trainer. In the end, participants also went through a self-assessment test to check their own current EI levels.

Team building at Diveagar
In February 2013, CCIans enjoyed an expedition to a nearby picturesque spot, Diveagar, for a team building workshop with Augustus Mallier and Maranna Mallier as external trainers. Participants enjoyed various activities that helped engrave team spirit and bonding. Activities included games and tasks that taught associates how to better work together, communicate, and coordinate to overcome limitations. Associates also enhanced their skills in the areas of trust, collaboration and maintaining balance in a team. Being in the lovely beach town, associates also played rounds of Frisbee and a game of charades and enjoyed parasailing and bonfire.
