PLEASE NOTE: Separate registration and fee is required to attend this seminar.

Tuesday, October 18 | 9:30AM–5:30PM | Meeting Room 204B
Session Type: E11
Recognizing behaviors and understanding the needs of people who exhibit those behaviors helps create more effective work and personal relationships. This session will build awareness of the different styles and discuss ways to communicate more clearly, accomplish desired change, and modify your own behavior when working with each style. This session will also focus on emotional intelligence and explore the crucial linkages between EI, behavior styles, values, and leadership success over the long term. The realities we confront as leaders today make EI a crucial concept. An institution's ability to survive tomorrow's challenges depends to a large extent on whether its leaders can manage emotions in the face of change. For example, emotionally intelligent leaders remain focused and clear-thinking under pressure. This session will introduce the concepts and key components of EI, provide an assessment of individual EI competencies, and describe the impact of EI on successful leadership.
