Topic: Leading With Emotional Intelligence - Cultivating Your Inner Strength
Description: Nothing stirs our emotions like the dynamics in a relationship, but often our interaction and reactions are based on mismanaged emotions. Emotional Intelligence is the capacity to recognize and effectively manage emotions in ourselves and with others.
