Emotional intelligence (EI) or emotional quotient (EQ) is the capacity of individuals to recognize their own, and other people's emotions, to discriminate between different feelings and label them appropriately, and to use emotional information to guide thinking and behavior.

Research has shown that psychological safety is a primary factor in effecting successful outcomes, both with co-workers and with clients. Higher emotional intelligence creates a zone where it is safe to:

  • Discuss Ideas
  • Experiment
  • Take Risks
  • Give Feedback
  • Learn from Mistakes

Join Dr. Johnson as she talks about the impact and importance of Emotional Intelligence. Discover why this term has grown in popularity both at home and at work. By the end of the presentation, you will have a better understanding of both Emotional Intelligence itself and how to improve your own Emotional Intelligence.

  • Develop increased empathy, self-awareness and self-regulation
