Public Sector CoP: March 2019: How Emotional Intelligence Contributes to Project Management Success

Abstract:

Have you ever wondered why navigating difficult situations with managing projects seems to be a breeze for some people? It could be related to highly developed emotional intelligence. Emotional intelligence - also referred to as emotional quotient or EQ - is the awareness of one's own emotions and the emotions of others, and the capability to manage those emotions to achieve desirable outcomes. Join us for a fun and engaging workshop as we dive into the four components of emotional intelligence and practice some techniques anyone can use to develop their own EQ.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the components of EQ
  • Self-assessment of EQ level
  • Learning activities for improving EQ
