Building emotional intelligence is pivotal to becoming an effective leader.
Emotional reasoning can even trump IQ. While the correlation between IQ (traditionally measured as verbal-mathematical reasoning and perceptual-motor skills) and leadership is not extremely high, the correlation between emotional intelligence (self-awareness, self-management, empathy and social skills) and leadership effectiveness is extraordinarily high.
Join Dr. Rick Gilkey to learn how to build emotional intelligence as a leader and contribute to and build work environments and cultures that are “brain-friendly,” (i.e., ones that bring out the very best in people).
