MAY 20TH 2019
LOCATION: AKRON URBAN LEAGUE
TOPIC: EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE AND OUR ABILITY TO LEAD A DIVERSE WORKFORCE
PRESENTER: EDWIN HUBBARD JR.
EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE IS THE CAPACITY TO RECOGNIZE ONE’S THOUGHTS AND FEELINGS AS A WAY TO MAKE OPTIMAL DECISIONS. WHILE FOR A LONG TIME, BUSINESS LEADERS WOULD SUGGEST “EMOTIONS” WERE AN IMPEDIMENT TO THINKING, RESEARCHERS HAVE FOUND THAT EMOTIONS ARE CRITICAL TO THINKING AS IT INCLUDES COMPETENCY IN MULTIPLE AREAS. IN THIS SESSION WE WILL EXPLORE THOSE COMPETENCIES AND BEGIN TO FORM STRATEGIES THAT TRANSFORM THE WORKSPACE.
