Using Emotional Intelligence to Our Advantage in the Workplace
11:30 am – 1:00 pm
Christopher Connors
EQ isn’t just a buzzword—in fact, research demonstrates that emotional intelligence is the strongest predictor of performance in jobs. So, how can we use this knowledge to our advantage in the workplace? Highlighting the five key components of emotional intelligence, and drilling deeper into skills like self-awareness, empathy, adaptability, cultivating passion and optimism, and applying a servant leader mindset, I will provide examples of exactly how to apply this in your work. Using my project management background, I talk about building your “Game Plan” for how to integrate emotional intelligence into your thoughts and actions. I cite examples of leaders that have thrived by using emotional intelligence to their advantage, and I offer solutions for dealing with obstacles to using EQ to your advantage. By increasing in EQ, you’ll feel more productive, more motivated and better recognize your purpose and mission to live a more successful, fulfilling life.
