Emotional Intelligence in the Workplace
Presented by: Dr. Holly A. Sullenger
Cost: $0 for members; $20 for non-members
Emotional intelligence (EI) is the ability to monitor one’s own and other people’s emotions, to discriminate between different emotions and label them appropriately, and to use emotional information to guide thinking and behavior. Studies have shown that people with high EI have greater mental health, exemplary job performance, and more potent leadership skills. In this seminar, you will learn how to develop EI in yourself, co-workers, superiors and subordinates, making conflict resolution successful for all involved.
