Leading with Emotional Intelligence
presented by Jen Shirkani of Penumbra Group
EQ is an essential ingredient of long term success, particularly in complex and ever changing workplace environments.  Well-developed EQ allows us to gain deeper insight into interpersonal dynamics and greater mastery to build broad and powerful partnerships required for success. This session includes activities and exercises that develop self-awareness for leaders through a self-assessment, raise self-control via a “triggers” exercise, and practice empathy via a group perspective activity.  Participants will also receive definitions and development tips for the key skills set required to demonstrate EQ, understand its correlation to employee engagement, participate in a discussion on the particular risks senior leaders face, and learn strategies for managing the balance between ego and EQ.
