Webinar Abstract:  Research continues to show that not only is emotional intelligence (EI) a greater predictor of success than intellectual intelligence (IQ,) it also leads to a happier, healthier life. While emotions can contribute to challenges, with EI, they become resources to fuel collaboration, resolve conflict and enhance relationships. The best part is, EI is learnable!

This workshop will combine an interactive presentation with an individual and peer to peer activity. Participants will have the opportunity to view a conflict situation through the lens of Emotional Intelligence and work with a partner to give and receive feedback.
