Leadership Talk Plenary Session
"Emotional Intelligence"
Is It Still a Soft Skill
Have you ever heard that success is strongly influenced by personal qualities such as perseverance, self-control and skill in getting along with others? These are all qualities that describe Emotional Intelligence, or “EQ”. Professionals with high EQ are better able to work in teams, adjust to change and be flexible. No matter how many degrees or other on-paper qualifications a person has, if he or she doesn’t have certain emotional qualities, success is unlikely. As the workplace continues to evolve, making room for new technologies and innovations, these qualities may become increasingly important. A panel of senior leaders will provide insight on how developing strong EQ has played a key role throughout their lives and careers.
