Inside Out: Harnessing the Power of Emotional Intelligence In Your Career

Recently while watching the Disney movie Inside Out with her children, Aly Klidies realized that so many of the emotions displayed in the film are actually valuable demonstrations that can help us explore, understand, and develop as adults in our careers. Have you ever been in a meeting where your project deadline date was moved up two weeks sooner than expected and you wanted to burst into flames like "Anger"? Or maybe you were sitting in a performance review and you started to focus solely on the negative comments from your manager like "Sadness" would? We have all been there! That's why it's so crucial to recognize emotions in the workplace. The importance of emotional intelligence (EQ) has been undeniable for decades. Did you know that some research findings claim that emotional intelligence is responsible for 58% of your job performance, and that 90% of top performers have a high EQ? Join Aly for a fun and interactive session to learn exactly what emotional intelligence is and how you can harness its power to excel in your career.
