Glowan Kicks Off New Round of "Smart Skills" Webinars

September 13, 2011 webinar focuses on the importance of Emotional Intelligence in the workplace and at home.

Glendora, Calif. /August 15, 2011 — Emotional Intelligence focuses on improving one’s ability to recognize and manage their emotional reactions and those of others.

Based on recent research, the difference between those who reach their full potential in life and those who do not is their degree of emotional intelligence (EI), or “people skills”.

These people skills (your EI) encompass:

An awareness of your own emotions,
An awareness of emotions in others,
An understanding of these emotions,
And the ability to manage your own emotions and the emotions of others.

However, according to recent research, 75% of the reasons careers get derailed are EI-related:

Unsatisfactory leadership across all levels during challenging times.
Inability to handle interpersonal issues.
Inability to adapt to change.
Inability to elicit trust.

Learn how developing and managing your Emotional Intelligence will help you grow as an individual and a leader. The Glowan Principals will translate the latest science on emotion and performance and will review practical strategies for leaders and team members to become more effective.

This 1 hour content-packed Emotional Intelligence Webinar is only $149. You can invite as many colleagues as you’d like to listen in on a single phone line via speakerphone.
