October 21 – 22, 2022

Embassy Suites by Hilton Detroit Metro Airport

What You’ll Learn

Certified TalentSmart facilitator Kate Wehby (Gamma Xi 2009/Grand Valley) will deliver Mastering Emotional Intelligence Level 1. This leadership development opportunity will include an individual self-assessment as pre-work prior to the event. All participants will be expected to complete a self-assessment that will be used for the program by October 16, 2022. Instructions for completing the self-assessment will be shared the week of October 3.

Participants can expect to: 

  • Increase their Emotional Quotient (EQ) through engaging and relevant exercises
  • Measure their EQ and discover how to improve each of the four critical emotional intelligence skills 
  • Understand the business case for EQ, including the integral connection between EQ and job performance 
  • Adopt proven strategies and best practices that are customized to them during the day-long experience

What is Emotional Intelligence?

Emotions are present in everything you think, do, and say each day on the job, in your career, and throughout your life.

Emotional intelligence is how you handle yourself and others. Your EQ taps into a fundamental element of human behavior that is distinct from your intellect and personality. It affects how you manage your behavior, navigate social complexities, and make personal decisions that achieve positive results.

People who develop their emotional intelligence communicate more effectively, handle stress and conflict productively, are better team players, are able to navigate change, and also perform at a higher level.

This experience is for any Alpha Sigma Tau Chapter Advisory Board members who wish to enhance their emotional intelligence and improve their leadership skills.
