Emotional Intelligence

Alexandra Rollins


Emotional intelligence (EI) is the ability to identify and manage one’s own emotions as well as the emotions of others. For success in careers and one’s personal life, EI is more important than IQ. To thrive today, it’s important to develop mature emotional intelligence skills necessary to better understand, empathize and negotiate with others. This session addresses the competencies needed for high-level emotional intelligence and skills necessary for that achievement.

This session will focus on the five core competencies of emotional intelligence: self-management, self-awareness, self-regulation, self- motivation and empathy.
