Emotional intelligence is a widely accepted organizational tool for hiring, training, leadership development and team building. In fact, some estimates suggest that 75% of Fortune 500 companies have adopted EI-related products and services.
However, there is a substantial misunderstanding about what emotional intelligence is, how it is measured and how it operates in the workplace.
Dr. Dana Joseph, an EI scholar and consultant from the University of Central Florida will clarify what EI is (and is not) and discuss how it should be used as a leadership tool. You will develop a greater understanding of your own emotional intelligence, too.
