Emotional intelligence (EI) can have far-reaching influence in the workplace. The ability to recognize, understand, and effectively manage your emotions—while adapting your behaviors in a constructive way—can impact everything from team culture and dynamics to performance and productivity.

Emotionally intelligent professionals lead by example and are stronger problem solvers. They communicate more effectively, make better decisions, build closer relationships, and achieve career and personal goals while better engaging and motivating those around them.

You’re invited to WSB’s next EdgeUp webinar: Leading with Emotional Intelligence to learn how to build this foundational skill that’s a catalyst for both personal and professional growth. 

 In this webinar you will:

  • Learn the brain science of emotions that drive our workplace interpersonal behaviors
  • Identify patterns, triggers, and emotional habits that either drive or derail performance and relationships
  • Assess the current state of your emotional intelligence skills and identify opportunities for increased effectiveness in your workplace interactions
  • Develop practical strategies and adapt behaviors to respond more skillfully and expand your influence and credibility
