The Science Behind Star Performance: Leveraging the Power of Emotional Intelligence
Program Description: Someone with high Emotional Intelligence (EQ) demonstrates a sensibility – he or she can manage their own emotional impulses, can communicate with others effectively, can manage change well, problem solves, uses humor to build rapport, has empathy and remains optimistic even in the face of adversity. Studies show a direct correlation between high Emotional Intelligence and job success for all roles.  Many organizations are often filled with highly successful, technically strong employees that also come with highly developed egos that can make team dynamics even more difficult. This presentation provides strategies for maintaining the important balance between confidence and arrogance. Audience members will receive definitions of the skills associated with EQ; learn how to harness the power of it to build more influence; and learn techniques to develop Emotional Intelligence in themselves and others.

Presented by: Jen Shirkani has spent over 25 years as a learning and development specialist, coach and speaker. Her specialty topic, emotional intelligence, is presented from a leadership perspective filled with practical strategies and immediately useable tips. Jen has worked with organizations from the Fortune 50 ($40B) to family-owned entities specializing in the application of Emotional Intelligence. She holds a Master’s Degree in Organizational Leadership. She is also the author of Ego vs. EQ: How Top Leaders Beat 8 Ego Traps Using Emotional Intelligence written to help leaders help themselves.
