Leading by Building Strong Relationships with Emotional Intelligence

One of the secrets to great leadership and a person’s ability to positively influence, inspire, and motivate others is their capacity to understand and act in accordance with the core principle, based upon current research in neuroscience, that people are powerfully driven by their emotions. Built into our very DNA is the prominence of the affective domain which effects both our thought and action. In this presentation there will be opportunity to learn the skills that can help align us with this primary influence on human behavior, helping us to become more effective and empowering leaders. The goal will be a meaningful, enjoyable, and educational experience developing our emotional intelligence while also having a few laughs and becoming more transformational leaders.
