As Business owner's, supervisors and HR managers are often taxed with the responsibility of selecting, advising, managing and leading their company’s workforce, it is imperative that they understand the primary components that make up Emotional Intelligence. This understanding can lead to greater levels of professional and personal success for the Professionals themselves, as well as the teams they work with, and the companies they serve.

During this presentation, we will review the 5 components of EQ and how they relate to improved work performance and success. Participants will gain a greater understanding of their own EQ strengths, and be provided with some basic tools for developing their EQ skills.
