Emotional Intelligence Workshop

Posted to Event by Mr. Michael Krebsbach of Associated Builders and Contractors, Inc. Eastern Pa. Chapter at 11:15 AM

Have you ever looked around and wondered why some people just seem to have the right response for the right situation? People who seem to handle stress with ease, while also showing sensitivity to the emotions of others?

Many people are familiar with the concept of an IQ, which measures innate intelligence. However, it is EQ — or emotional intelligence — that often plays an even more vital role in our success at work. Emotional Intelligence refers to your ability to recognize and manage your own emotions, recognize and respond to the emotions of others and build effective social relationships that support success at both work and home. The good news? Unlike IQ, which is generally fixed, you have the ability to develop your emotional intelligence. This workshop will help you learn how.
