About the Session - Emotional Intelligence in Organisations

According to many, emotional intelligence holds the key to building both successful careers and effective organizations. Is this true? In this Lunch and Learn, you will hear some of the current research and debates on the concept of emotional intelligence. Specifically, we will discuss both foundational issues, such as what is emotional intelligence and how can it be measured, and applied research on emotional intelligence in the context of work and organizations, such as why emotional intelligence enhances collaboration and organizational leadership.
