Got EQ? Don’t Kick the Dog!

Emotional Intelligence (sometimes referred to as Emotional Quotient) requires little introduction now that it is considered a critical success factor in a career and organization, along with decision-making, leadership, creativity & innovation, teambuilding, and communication – just to name a few. But just because Emotional Intelligence is commonly known doesn’t mean it is commonly practiced to improve personal and professional lives.

In this session, we will take a look at Emotional Intelligence through an amusing story, “Don’t Kick the Dog”. This story, about 4 kids and a dog named Precious, will set the frame for a lively and highly interactive evening of learning. You will have some of your most “burning” questions answered by Panelists who are in the know, and finally — how about a round of “Emotional Intelligence Jeopardy”.

Michelle Y. Gilder will be our Learning Facilitator. She promises you will not only confirm what you already know about the skills of Emotional Intelligence but will be inspired to practice these skills to achieve more of what you want in your business and personal lives.

We look forward to seeing you on May 14 at the University of Dallas. Remember we are in a different room at UD in 2015!  (It’s a nicer room and much easier to find!)
