Emotional Intelligence - A Critical Survival Skill
Emotional Intelligence is not a new concept in the business landscape. In fact, Charles Darwin presented his theory of biological evolution more than 150 years ago and emotional expression was deemed a critical survival skill and a requirement to achieve higher levels of species adaptation. Daniel Goleman captured mainstream business attention over 15 years ago with his national bestseller– Emotional Intelligence, Why it Can Matter More than IQ. Since then, hundreds of articles, books, and research have emerged. Even the most recent issue of Talent Management calls Emotional Intelligence: The Next Step in a Business’ Survival Strategy.
But knowing we need to do something and actually practicing it (think about your exercise program) – gets you distinctly different results. Join Exceleration Partners, Co-Founders, Betsy Pickren and Jodie Charlop, who will share a practical overview of EI and showcase EI as a set of skills that when practiced is a transforming force in your leadership or business success. The good news, not only will it change your success DNA in a professional sense, it has a wonderful side benefit to change your life.
