Emotional Intelligence: Harnessing the Power of Emotionally Intelligent Leadership

  • Harrisburg, PA
  • September 21

In this presentation, Bob Anderson will facilitate an interactive workshop based on Emotional Intelligence/Emotional Quotient (EI/EQ) awareness and skill development. Key issues covered include:

  • what is Emotional Intelligence — how EI/EQ differs from IQ
  • the business case for EQ — how developing it translates into bottom-line results
  • your role as a leader in developing your Emotional Intelligence — why should you?
  • Emotional Intelligence assessment results — members will receive an EQ report providing them with a snapshot of their EQ — 15 EQ competencies will be measured
  • techniques to help you continually develop your EQ
  • how do you build EQ as an organizational capacity.

Research suggests that the higher you go in an organization, the more EQ matters. In a study of more than 515 senior global executives, the most successful had the strongest emotional intelligence. A recent Harvard University study reveals that up to 95% of success in leadership is attributed to EQ/EI.
