Presented by: Jan Victor, Principal, Victor Group Consulting
Emotional intelligence drives our success in work and in life and in our relationships with others. What is emotional intelligence? How can it add to my success on the job and in my personal life? Jan will bring that vision to you and help you understand what it is and how it can be used to help position you to secure employment.
Emotional intelligence is about being aware of ourselves and others, in the moment, and using that awareness to manage our behavior and responses to stressful or challenging situations, and to manage our relationships with others. Emotional intelligence (EI or EQ) encompasses many skill sets, including stress management, resilience, managing conflict productively, powerful influencing skills, catalyzing change, teamwork and collaboration, building trust and much more. Unfortunately, we see it most when it’s lacking – think of the boss who explodes when a deadline is missed, or the co-worker whom no one trusts. These people are limited by their lack of EQ skills. The good news? EQ can be learned and strengthened throughout our lives. It’s never too late to add these essential skills to your career strategy.
