Why would we need to pay attention to emotions? We now have over 3 decades of research on emotional intelligence (EI) and neuroscience and know so much more about how emotions affect our everyday lives. Yale University has its Centre for the Study of Emotional Intelligence. Google, Nike, Amazon and Microsoft base their leadership development programs on EI. And yet, the concept of EI or EQ remains poorly understood by many. What exactly is EI/EQ and why is it so important for engineers and geoscientists? Join David Cory, executive coach, leadership development specialist and keynote speaker, as he shares with you what you need to know both for yourself and how to best serve colleagues, direct reports, customers and clients with emotional intelligence.

Participants will be able to:

  • Explain what we mean by emotional intelligence and how it can help you build more effective relationships and communicate more clearly;
  • Describe one of the world’s leading models of emotional intelligence; and
  • Leave with 5 key takeaways to help develop emotional intelligence competencies.
