Boosting Your Emotional Intelligence

A high IQ doesn’t necessarily translate into academic, career, or social success. The most accurate predictor of success is emotional intelligence, or EQ – the capacity to understand one’s self and others and apply that understanding effectively in challenging personal and professional situations. This session covers the five key components of emotional intelligence – self-awareness, self-regulation, empathy, relationship management, and motivation. You’ll learn why EQ is integral to achievement, ways to increase it, and how to leverage it to enhance workplace wellness. You’ll take away solid strategies for putting your elevated EQ into action, so you can get the results you want and help others do the same.
