Leadership Roles: The Challenge of Managing Emotions and Behaviors (Emotional Intelligence)
Presented by Scott Nelson


Emotional intelligence has been misunderstood to be a trait of those who are deemed overly sensitive and "touchy feely." In reality, it's a sophisticated description that relies on tremendous emotional control, highly attuned awareness and exceptional observation.
Emotional intelligence is the ability to understand one's own emotions and how these emotions can influence motivation and behavior. Understanding and improving the connection between emotions and actions is crucial to personal and professional success.
Maximize your effectiveness by developing skills and increase your self understanding of emotional management. Recognize your moods and emotions and their effect of others.
