Registration is now open for the last offering in the 2014 Leadership Series. The topic is Emotional intelligence: A pathway to self-understanding and improved leadership.
Emotional intelligence is a set of emotional and social skills that influence the way we perceive and express ourselves, develop and maintain social relationships, cope with challenges, and use emotions to understand others in an effective and meaningful way. It is a skill that can be developed and can result in effective relationships, interpersonal growth, and improved self-management - all essential aspects of being a leader!
Participants will take the first scientifically validated instrument to measure emotionally intelligent behavior, the Bar-On Emotional Quotient Inventory (EQ-i 2.0®). Educators Catie Rasmussen and Mike Liepold will then provide participants with a deeper understanding of their core emotional intelligence skills and help create a plan to enhance those skills too.
