$95 for CUPA-HR Members | $195 for Nonmembers

Cognitive intelligence, or “IQ,” was once considered the leading psychological determinant of effective leadership, and personality traits such as extraversion were considered qualities of strong leaders. However, more recent research — as well as practical experience — suggests that emotional intelligence may be even more vital when it comes to effectively leading and building working relationships.

As a higher ed HR professional, you are both a leader and a supporter of those who lead others at your institution. In addition to finding tools to strengthen your own emotional intelligence, this virtual workshop will help you discover best-practices for using emotional intelligence on your campus to drive innovation, attract the future workforce, and support current employees.

During this interactive virtual workshop, you’ll explore:

  • What emotional intelligence really means and why it is becoming the gold standard for working with and leading others
  • Methods for using emotional intelligence to empower employees and support leadership effectiveness
  • Specific tools and techniques HR can use to help current and potential leaders develop their own emotional intelligence
  • Approaches to using emotional intelligence to manage stress, burnout, and other critical challenges — for yourself and others
