Emotional Intelligence

Grow Older; Grow Wiser; Lead by Example

In this informative and entertaining lecture, we will explore one of the hot topics in both the popular and academic literature of today: emotional intelligence and its implications. Research has demonstrated that emotional intelligence, defined as “the capacity for managing emotions well in ourselves and our relationships,” might be much more important than cognitive or technical abilities for professional and personal success and accomplishments. And, good news for many of us, unlike other competencies, emotional intelligence tends to increase as we age!

This event will utilize lecture, surveys, film-clips and discussions to examine the four pillars of emotional intelligence — self-awareness, self-management, social awareness and relationship management. We will use a confidential short survey to see where we stand in relationship to these four components, learn the behaviors that are key to each, and touch on some strategies and tools to boost our competence and confidence in this critical endeavor. In addition, we will highlight some contemporary CEOs who utilize emotional intelligence as major contributors to their success.
