Developing Emotional Intelligence: The Brain of a Leader
Original Program Date :
Length: 54 Minutes
This session will enable participants to understand how to leverage emotions rather than suppress or avoid them. In research from Stanford, Cal Berkeley and University of Texas at Austin, it has been shown business negotiations fail or fall short of an ideal outcome when one or more parties is suppressing their emotions. By understanding the emotional underpinnings of your behavior, business people are better able to cooperate and find common ground with direct reports, team members, bosses, vendors, colleagues and their spouses. Research suggests that emotional intelligence is responsible for nearly 60% of job performance.
