Topic - Emotional Intelligence

What is Emotional Intelligence (EI) and why should we care?  This presentation explores the impact of Emotional Intelligence on leadership excellence and personal fulfillment.  It will provide an overview of the four EI domains and introduce strategies for increasing the competencies associated with each.

Daniel Goleman's brilliant report from the frontiers of psychology and neuroscience offers insight into our "two minds"—the rational and the emotional—and how they together shape our destiny. Emotional intelligence can be defined as the ability to monitor one’s own and other people’s emotions, using emotional information to guide thinking and behavior. The four pillars of Emotional Intelligence are Self-Awareness, Awareness of Others, Self-Management, and Relationship Management.

 What’s your emotional quotient?
