Power Skills (previously known as "Leadership")

We have all heard about the importance of Emotional Intelligence to leadership and success in the workplace. How does one develop this essential skill, and more importantly, apply it to our projects? Emotional intelligence can be learned and practiced daily till it simply becomes a habit. In this one-hour session, we will cover the key elements of emotional intelligence and why it matters. We will look at the more common myths about emotional intelligence and learn key strategies for linking aspects of emotional intelligence to our projects for enhanced success and performance.
