In this session, attendees will learn how emotional intelligence impacts leadership. Webinar participants will understand what emotional intelligence is, how it works, and how to improve it to increase their own and others’ leadership capacity. The workshop will include an overview of the EQ-i 2.0 assessment and model.

This interactive webinar will help attendees:

  • Explore 5 areas of emotional intelligence that are critical to being an effective leader

  • Learn how to improve the areas of emotional intelligence that most impact leadership

  • Consider how to include the EQ-i 2.0 assessment in your coaching and leadership development programs

“Emotional intelligence—the ability to, for instance, understand your effect on others and manage yourself accordingly—accounts for nearly 90 percent of what moves people up the ladder when IQ and technical skills are roughly similar” (Wilcox, L. referencing "What Makes a Leader" in the Harvard Business Review, January 2004).
