Session Description

Leaders with high emotional intelligence (EQ) are some of the best people to work with; they project confidence, are self-aware, understand what motivates others, and are effective collaborators and team members. Luckily, EQ skills can be learned, practiced, and improved! Participants in this session will gain practical strategies for increasing EQ to better manage themselves, others, and teams. Come prepared to engage in interactive learning activities, group discussion, self-reflection, and EQ goal-setting.

Learning Objectives

After completing this session, participants will be able to:

  • Define EQ and describe the model’s four core skills and two primary competencies

  • Identify and implement strategies to increase their own EQ

  • Establish group norms that build the EQ of teams and work-groups

Note: This session is an all-day workshop and requires pre-registration. The purpose of the Deep Dives are to give participants an opportunity to spend the entire day thinking and learning about a particular topic or skill.  All Summit attendees will participate in the opening keynote and lunch presentation(s).  Deep Dive workshops are scheduled to take place during the morning and afternoon breakouts.
