Developing Your Emotional Intelligence (EQ): For Personal & Professional Success

Facilitated by Patie B Jansen

What is Emotional Intelligence?

“Emotional Intelligence is your ability to recognize and understand emotions in yourself and others, and your ability to use this awareness to manage your behavior and relationships. EQ affects how we demonstrate self-control, navigate social complexities, and make personal decisions that achieve positive results.” Emotional Intelligence 2.0 by Travis Bradberry & Jean Greaves
