Emotional intelligence (“EQ”) is the single biggest predictor of success in leadership. Unlike IQ, EQ is not static and can be taught, and that’s what this session, “Emotional Intelligence: The Secret Sauce For Lawyer Well-Being” is about. Lawyers with high EQs will be more successful and resilient; they will be better communicators; they will navigate through challenges and change more effectively; and they will be better at conflict resolution, all of which leads to a more satisfying and engaged culture. The key skills that attendees will learn, refresh and/or enhance include:
- Accurately perceiving their own emotions in the moment and gaining a keen understanding of their tendencies across situations;
- Staying on top of their typical reactions to specific events, challenges and people; *Using awareness of their emotions to stay flexible and direct their behavior positively and productively;
