Leading with Emotional Intelligence

Tuesday, May 18, 2021 (5:00 PM - 6:00 PM) (PDT)



As business analysis professionals, you required excellent technical and financial skills to get you to where you are now in your professional career. But if you are to progress to the next level in your career or you want to be a more effective leader, what will that require? We now have over 3 decades of research on emotional intelligence (EI). Yale University has its Centre for the Study of EI. Google, Nike, Amazon and Microsoft base their leadership development programs on one specific model of EI. And the World Economic Forum has identified EI as a top employment skill for 2020. 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 professionals who work with numbers? Join David Cory, coach and leadership development specialist, as he shares with you what you need to know to excel in your profession.

Participants will be able to:

  1.  Explain what we mean by emotional intelligence and how it can help business analysts in their professional career;
  2. Describe one of the world’s leading models of emotional intelligence;
  3. Take away 5 Keys for Developing Emotional Intelligence Competencies;
