Emotional Intelligence: What’s New, What’s True – Improving EQ with Behavioral Style.
Highlands Ranch, CO (PRWEB) April 10, 2009
Intellect and functional skills are clearly important in the workplace. However, research shows that emotional intelligence (EQ) is an even more important factor in effective leadership and high performance. Colorado State University, in collaboration with the TRACOM Group, recently conducted a research study showing the link between EQ and TRACOM’s measure of Versatility. Both EQ and Versatility have been shown to relate to workplace performance. Emotional intelligence is the ability to perceive, control and evaluate emotions to improve your work and personal life.
TRACOM will present the results of the study during a webinar titled “Emotional Intelligence: What’s New, What’s True – Improving EQ with Behavioral Style.” The webinar will be broadcast live on Wednesday, April 29 at 11:00 a.m. Eastern time.
David Collins, vice president and general manager of TRACOM’s training division, and Casey Mulqueen, Ph.D., TRACOM’s director of research, will present the hour-long webinar. Collins and Mulqueen will explain why emotional intelligence is important and how it can be applied in the workplace. They will also present evidence for measurable links between emotional intelligence and business results.
Webinar participants will receive a copy of the presentation and a summary of TRACOM’s new 2009 research on emotional intelligence in the workplace. Attendees will walk away with an understanding of how emotional intelligence affects leadership, the connection between EQ and business performance and how EQ can be influenced by the application of behavioral style.
