Introduction to Emotional Intelligence
Did you know that Emotional Intelligence is three times more likely to predict leadership success than IQ?
The most effective leaders understand how to manage their emotions. Leaders set the tone for their personal interactions. A leader's Emotional Intelligence affects others in the organization. Knowing how to leverage one’s Emotional Intelligence effectively can be the difference between effective and ineffective leadership.
Emotional Intelligence is the ability to understand your feelings and the emotional states of those around you, and the ability to use those feelings to guide thoughts and actions appropriately. Individuals with high emotional intelligence are poised, outgoing and cheerful, have empathy for others, express their feelings directly/appropriately and have the capacity to build meaningful relationships. These traits are very important aspects of a collaborative, high achieving workplace. This presentation will offer techniques to understand and develop your emotional intelligence.
