PMIUNY Annual Professional Development Day (PDD) - Introduction to Emotional Intelligence -VIRTUAL

Power Skills


Emotional Intelligence is a set of emotional and social skills that collectively establish how well we:

  • Perceive and express ourselves
  • Develop and maintain social relationships
  • Cope with challenges
  • Use emotional information in an effective and meaningful way

A skill set that transfers across all categories of relationship, Emotional Intelligence is a predictor of success in life and also at work: for project managers and others. This highly- interactive course delivers a practical approach to developing, improving, and sustaining effective and mutually beneficial relationships. 

Participants will gain insight into what the latest neuroscientific research has to say with regard to emotion and motivation. They will explore their own strengths and challenges in relation to emotional intelligence and learn strategies for enhancing their relationships.
