    Emotional Intelligence at Work: The Secret Ingredient to High Performance

    Emotional Intelligence refers to how we perceive and express ourselves, build and maintain interpersonal relationships, cope with stress,and use emotional data to solve problems and make decisions. Research consistently proves that it is our EQ and not our IQ that most significantly impacts our success in the workplace. Thankfully, unlike IQ or personality which tend to be relatively fixed, EQ can be intentionally developed.  Join Kate Coleman from Work Wisdom to learn more about your own Emotional Intelligence and how developing it can optimize your performance and expand your influence.
