Event description

Description

Why would Emotional Intelligence (EI) matter to great leaders? Because having EI makes great leaders.

A leader who is able to gauge the needs of his or her team members through deep empathy is able to create a workplace with greater collaboration, communication, and workplace productivity.

The five elements of EI can catapult a manager to success:

  1. Self-awareness
  2. Self-regulation
  3. Motivation
  4. Empathy
  5. Social Skills

In this reflective talk, discover what emotional intelligence is and how it’s fundamental to the success of your work life.
