Leading with Emotional Intelligence
January 17, 2013 - 5:30 p.m.
Johnson Great Room
McNamara Alumni Center

Just as great technologies aren't successful without an effective business model, great technologists aren't necessarily going to be great leaders because of their technical expertise alone.  In the past decade we've learned a lot about the role that emotional intelligence (EQ) plays as a complement to IQ in differentiating the best performers from the rest, especially in leadership roles.  If you are striving to differentiate yourself as a great leader of teams and/or organizations, join us as we take a brief look at the impact and practice of EQ as a key enabler of leadership effectiveness.
