About the Session

Emotional Intelligence is currently the hottest topic in Leadership Development, and Ms. Calzada has become one of the national leaders on the topic. Emotional Intelligence (EQ) is the ability to recognize and understand the feelings and emotional reactions of oneself and others, then use that information to build better relationships. Ultimately, better relationships translate into better workplaces and more effective organizational performance. Learning more about the components of EQ is a way to improve your leadership skills and understand yourself and others better. You will learn how to translate that information into effective actions. Leaders at all levels of organizations find that increasing skills in leading with empathy and other core EQ components are important success factors in leading today’s workforce effectively.
