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.
Your organization has a powerful story to tell and so do you. Finding your message and your story takes the curiosity of a child and the heart of a warrior. We can train you to think like a journalist to capture the stories that speak to the heart of what you do and drive results. We all want to see ourselves in other people and we often make sense of the world through shared experiences. Stories help us connect on a human level. They make complex issues real for us by putting a human face on them. They inspire. They engage. Through stories, we move people to think, feel and do. We'll show you the storytelling techniques you've seen in your favorite movies and novels and share how you can use them to tell your medical society's story.
