Emotional intelligence: the ability to understand and manage the emotions of one's self, and others. Daniel Goleman wrote that EI is a better predictor of success than IQ. Really? Well, we intuitively know the connection between leadership and interpersonal skills. Emotional intelligence is simply another set of people skills to add to your took kit for developing others.
So take your knowledge of emotional intelligence from intuitive to practical. In our July program we will discuss what makes a great leader, why leaders fail, and how to get the best from your employees. Learn why so many smart people do such stupid things. Join us for an informative and entertaining session on emotional intelligence on July 21st at UNO’s Thompson Alumni Center from 7:30 to 9:00 am.
