The Hard Skills of Emotional Intelligence for Effective Engineering Leaders

Emotions can drive our behavior and impact people (positively and negatively), and learning how to manage those emotions – both our own and others - is important when we are under pressure. 

High performing teams and leaders with emotional intelligence are more likely to achieve their goals. 

This virtual workshop featuring Dr. David Caruso of Yale's Center for Emotional Intelligence (EI), will focus on the ability model of emotional intelligence and begins with a hands-on illustration of the four “hard” skills of EI, followed by demonstrations of the notion that “emotions are data” and the cognitive costs of emotion suppression. After a review of a brief case study, participants will be provided with a means to apply these skills to situations faced by leaders in engineering using the Emotional Intelligence Blueprint.
