Emotional Intelligence in the Workplace
An ESC Webinar Presented
Thursday, October 22, 2020 | 10 – 11 a.m. EST
“It is very important to understand that emotional intelligence is not the opposite of intelligence, it is not the triumph of heart over head – it is the unique intersection of both.” –David Caruso, Ph.D., Management Psychologist & Author
Research shows that Emotional Intelligence (EI) may be significantly more important than cognitive ability and technical expertise combined when it comes to workplace performance. In fact, some studies indicate that EI is more than twice as important as standard IQ abilities. Join HR Business Partner Gregory Gjurich for an in-depth discussion on Emotional Intelligence and why it is so crucial in the business environment.
Topics covered will include:
- The business case for Emotional Intelligence (EI)
- Characteristics of people with low vs high EI

- Steps to improve EI for yourself and your team
- Why EI is particularly important during times of uncertainty and change
