Emotional Intelligence is something which is often talked about, but how much do we pay attention to the impact our emotions have on others? Do your actions have a positive impact that can do something as large as change someone's life? Or do your actions have a negative impact which can hold someone back from trying something new or keeping confidence in one's self? How can you use brain based strategies to manage emotions and leverage your relationships with stakeholders, vendors, suppliers and staff? In this conversation on Emotional Intelligence, Pawntra and Shannon will share real life examples of how managing your emotional intelligence can have both positive and negative effects on those around you. You may even see some of your favorite memes making an appearance! In this session, we look forward to engaging attendees with open dialogue about best practices and real world experiences.
