About this session
Technical knowledge and IQ have always been important, but to succeed in 2021 and beyond, a leader must exhibit the ability to identify and express emotions. For some, emotions are seen as a hindrance or obstacle. Harnessing emotions, however, has been proven to positively affect an organization's bottom line through employee engagement, retention, diversity and inclusion, and an increase in leader wellbeing.
If you struggle with de-escalating heated conversations, workplace stress, imposter syndrome, social anxiety… the good news is that emotional intelligence is a learnable skill. In this webinar, Dr. Jeff Frey will explain the five pillars of emotional intelligence, why they are important for leaders, and how a participant can elevate them.
