(WOC Seminar 1316) Emotional Intelligence in the Workplace: Mentoring Others to Success
Learning Objective: Examine techniques for increasing emotional intelligence to access career opportunities.
Research has shown that emotional intelligence can be an accurate predictor of performance as well as an indicator of leadership and personal excellence. Emotional intelligence can be defined as being aware of your own and other's emotions and adjusting those emotions to enable effective thinking and to handle situations. Employees and managers that possess a high emotional intelligence can typically read a room quickly, assess situations faster, and easily show respect and empathy for others. These soft skills may not sound as impressive as some of the skills learned in the hard sciences, but they can be essential for a woman in a developing leadership role. To develop into a top performer, emotional intelligence is beneficial to any woman that wants to progress in her career. Join us for this session as we discuss how women leaders can develop their own emotional intelligence and learn how to use it to their advantage to progress in their careers while managing their team to greater success.
At the end of this seminar, participants will be able to:
a. Examine the "double bind" effect that women face in their careers.
b. Develop emotional intelligence skills to assess and lead others with greater empathy and social management.
c. Discuss proper feedback in corporate environments that leads to greater team success.
d. Assess the tools needed for women leaders to provide balance for themselves and in the workplace that allow for professional and personal success.
