Emotional Intelligence Webinar May 8, 2019: Whether You're in the Executive Suite or Not — This Session is for You

If you are like me, you realize maintaining effective relationships is not easy. Think back to your ineffective relationships: what role did emotions play? In our professional lives, unhealthy relationships affect team chemistry, advancement, and even engagement. In fact, Gallup estimates employee disengagement cost U.S. companies $450-$550 billion a year — not exactly pocket change. Therefore, how does being emotionally-mindful set effective relationships apart from ineffective ones?

Emotional Intelligence, as a psychological theory, was developed by Peter Salovey and John Mayer. More recently, Daniel Goleman, a Harvard-trained psychologist, is credited for popularizing the term. Psychology Today defines emotional intelligence as “the ability to identify and manage your own emotions and the emotions of others.” Emotional Intelligence also involves taking a concerted, cognitive approach to managing your emotions, expressing yourself, and doing such in a manner that reflects empathy when socializing and building relationships. Recognizing its value and distinction from traditional measures of intelligence, even the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) has introduced evaluation and application of Emotional Intelligence in Federal agencies.

  • Learn the four elements of Emotional Intelligence
