    Join us Thursday, August 12 at 2pm CDT for
    "Emotional Intelligence: Why Emotions Propel People and
    People Propel Performance"

    Emotional intelligence or Emotional Quotient (EQ) is the ability to effectively recognize and manage our own emotions, as well as the emotions of others, in order to make optimal decisions. Emotions have the potential to get in the way of our most important business decisions and relationships. EQ has caused careers to derail, stopped people from becoming leaders and negatively impacted businesses. As the world changes faster and more frequently, EQ will only become a stronger differentiator in an increasingly unstable world. EQ is the number one reason successful leaders, managers and sales people outperform the average!

    According to John Kotter of Harvard Business School, 'because of the furious pace of change in business today, difficult to manage relationships sabotage more business than anything else - it is not a question of strategy that gets us into trouble, it is a questions of emotions'.

    In this session participants will: 

    • Identify the three core ways EQ is utilized
    • Explore how EQ impacts your life inside and outside of work
    • Discover how EQ can be measured and improved over time
