Want Leadership Success?  Make Sure Your EQ is as High as Your IQ!

Webinar, Friday, June 8, 2012, Noon - 1:00 pm

What’s the # 1 Predictor of Personal & Professional Success?  Emotional Intelligence (EI)! Studies have shown that as much as 40% of an individual’s success can be attributed to their Emotional Intelligence! Unlike IQ, your “EQ” can be developed and enhanced.  But first you need to know what it is, where to begin and what to work on.


Emotional Intelligence is the ability to recognize, understand and manage your emotions, and the emotions of others, to achieve YOUR desired outcome. The vast majority of our professional and personal life involves interaction with other people.


The Facts:

  • EQ is necessary for success:  Many independent academic research studies have shown that 25-50% of all job success can be attributed to EQ
  • EQ is imperative for leadership effectiveness:  studies attribute as much as 85-90% of leadership success to emotional intelligence
  • EQ accounts for at least 40% of the positive variance in superior team performance among otherwise equivalent groups


The Good News:  Unlike IQ, Emotional Intelligence skills can be learned. Those who develop their EQ skills see significant job performance improvement and career advancement.


This presentation provides a great introduction to the rich topic of EI, designed for those looking for an overview of the topic and some tips/techniques to put into action immediately.


We will cover:

  • What is EQ and why does it matter?
  • 5 Steps of an Emotionally Intelligent event
  • 15 Elements of EQ with tips, examples and enhancement strategies for  leaders


Who should attend? Anyone who:

  • Works with people!
  • Wants ideas to work on the EI skills they personally need to develop
  • Knows they’re smart, but isn’t where they want to be – personally or professionally!
