The Region VI Education and Professional Development Committee (EPDC) is proud to announce our next opportunity, Enhancing Success Through Emotional Intelligence (EI) with Rosemary Madnick and Kartik Yadav.

 

Emotional Intelligence (EI) is the capacity to understand, manage, and utilize emotions effectively in yourself and others.

These skills are crucial for effective communication, establishing healthy relationships, and achieving success in both personal and professional domains. EI empowers individuals to navigate social complexities, lead with empathy, and enhance overall well-being.

We invite you to join us for a compelling presentation on Emotional Intelligence (EI), where we will delve into the key skills required for recognizing, understanding, managing, and influencing emotions both in yourself and others. This presentation aims to offer a thorough overview of EI and highlight its significant impact on personal and professional development.

Learning Objectives:

  • Develop a solid understanding of Emotional Intelligence (EI) and its key components.

  • Apply practical tools to enhance and strengthen their own Emotional Intelligence.

  • Implement actionable strategies to effectively utilize Emotional Intelligence skills in personal and professional contexts.
