Moreover, the event attracted a large number of experts, managers, scholars, and representatives from businesses to participate both in person and online via Zoom.


Kicking off the workshop, Dr. Phùng Danh Thắng, Director of IFI, affirmed the similarity between IFI and VFPI in terms of interdisciplinary nature and the French factor in their development strategies.

Following that, Assoc. Prof. Dr. Nguyễn Thị Mỹ Lộc, the Director of VFPI, expressed her hope that the workshop would have a positive impact on the community in general and on psychology experts in particular. According to Ms. Mỹ Lộc, alongside intelligence quotient (IQ), emotional intelligence (EI) is becoming increasingly important, especially in the age of technology, as artificial intelligence is gradually penetrating all aspects of human life. Therefore, the theme "Emotional Intelligence in the Workplace" of the workshop will address contemporary issues and provide valuable knowledge and experience for leaders, human resource managers, teachers, or individuals who need to enhance their understanding of emotional intelligence and its practical application in the workplace.

Additionally, he presented a progression model of escalating conflicts in the workplace, thereby suggesting some ways to apply emotional intelligence to address these issues. At the end of the lecture, many audience members in the auditorium posed interesting questions to the speaker to resolve specific conflict cases in their respective workplaces. With extensive professional knowledge and rich practical experience, Dr. Lê Nguyên Phương answered all queries comprehensively and proposed solutions to enhance the effectiveness of business management, thereby promoting the overall development of enterprises.
