Event Details

We rarely talk about emotions in the workplace. Women often feel compelled to hide their emotions, yet they influence every decision we make. Emotional Intelligence describes how well you observe, understand and use emotional information about yourself and others. The good news is that a higher level of emotional intelligence gives you a 2:1 greater likelihood of success as shown in studies comparing leaders with the same IQ and technical skill.

  • Learn concepts and tools to leverage your built-in emotional intelligence "GPS"
  • Become mindful of your role as a thought leader and how that impacts your results
  • Discover Your Owner's Manual to maximize performance of your equipment
