Emotional Intelligence (EQ): The Secret Sauce for Extraordinary Leadership and Deeper Connection
Presented by the Womens Initiatives SIG



Featuring Alan Cohen


Many experts now believe that a person’s emotional intelligence quotient (EQ) may be more important than their IQ and is certainly a better predictor of success, quality of relationships, and overall happiness.  What is noteworthy is how the concept of EQ has evolved over the years, from its inception as something called “social intelligence” all the way back in the 1930s, to “emotional strength” in the mid-20th century, to its current terminology, “emotional intelligence.”  EQ covers our ability to recognize and understand our emotions and reactions, manage, control, and adapt our emotions, and harness our emotions to motivate ourselves and others to take appropriate action. While tools and technology can help us to learn and master information, nothing can replace our ability to learn, manage, and master our emotions.  In this 60-minute talk, participants will leave with:

Knowledge of what Emotional Intelligence is and what it is not;
An understanding of the value of heightened Emotional Intelligence on organizations and teams; and
Tips on increasing their own EQ
