Emotional Intelligence is the Other Kind of Smart!
If there is one spring event every woman leader wants to attend, it is the St. Petersburg Chamber of Commerce’s Women’s Leadership Council’s INSPIRE Event. This year’s INSPIRE! Series kicks off with A Leadership Kaleidoscope: Connections, Collisions and Collaborations. It is being held April 9, 2013 from 5 to 7 pm, at the prestigious Poynter Institute. Reservations can be made through the Chamber’s website at www.stpete.com or by calling the Chamber office at 727-821-4069.
CEO John Mackey of Whole Foods, in a recent video link, shared that Emotional Intelligenceundefinedbeing attuned to what is happening in you and around youundefinedis equal in importance to Leadership Savvy as Intellectual Prowess or Systems Knowledge (seeing the whole/anticipating the future) and to Spiritual Understanding of values, ethics, and having a sense of purpose. This special INSPIRE! Event explores Emotional Intelligence, with decades of research pointing to it being the critical factor that sets star performers apart from the rest of the pack.
Jill Geisler, Author of “Work Happy: What Great Bosses Know” and Kathy Potts, Founder of Destination Breakthru will headline this event. Each registered participant will be provided with an Emotional Intelligence Assessment form. Knowing where you stand, and where you need to improve is important for your Leadership Success in this multigenerational, multicultural work world. This INSPIRE event is geared to executive women, women in middle-management leadership roles, and those women aspiring to key leadership positions.
