Emotional Intelligence
MJ Clark, Integrated Leadership Systems

This interactive morning session will cover the crucial role of self-awareness in developing successful relationships and help participants pinpoint behaviors that impact work performance by reviewing the four core abilities of emotional intelligence.  Ms. Clark will cover how participants can identify their emotional triggers and improve their work by understanding how the brain processes emotion. She will also discuss how staying cool and building confidence can boost productivity and how to develop leadership skills by recognizing office behaviors to more productively manage relationships. This workshop will include activities and interactive discussion to reinforce the concepts presented, and participants will leave with concrete goals and action items to pursue to enhance their emotional intelligence.
