International Project Management Day: Emotional Intelligence - Critical Competence for Successful Project Leadership

Power Skills

Registration has ended as of Wednesday, November 1 at 5:00 pm ET. 

This presentation, Emotional Intelligence: Critical Competence for Successful Project Leadership, will take the participants through the criticality of EI to lead projects successfully and effectively. It begins with a reflection on self and builds the foundation for strong EI. Once there is self-mastery, the journey continues to the focus on others. It is here that honest perspectives and some tough realizations must occur. With tips and techniques to enhance and improve the EI with others, the participants are ready to move on to keys to EI and project leadership. The next step in the EI journey is only taken after self-mastery and excellence with others is comprehensive. The focus on EI for successful leadership is a journey that will continue. Each step of the journey will be defined, examples given, and techniques to enhance and improve the mastery of that step.
