Emotional Intelligence Through Three Lenses
October 19, 2018
As we know, it’s not the smartest people that are the most successful or the most fulfilled in life. When it comes to happiness and success in life, emotional intelligence (EQ) matters just as much as intellectual ability (IQ) - some say it matters more.
This webinar provided insights into the study of emotional intelligence by learning how it is being applied through the perspectives of three experienced practitioners.

Emotional Intelligence: The Only Pathway to Resonant Leadership
Leaders in the workplace, especially in the C Suite and those engaging in new leadership positions, face extraordinarily difficult decisions, interpersonal demands, and overwhelming stressors. With a multiplicity of these stressors, a leader can fall into the sacrificial syndrome and by default a dangerous dissonance. Without engaging in a renewal process, the leader will lose relational power, influence, and self-credibility. Without renewal, the leader can no longer lead with the requisites of resonant leadership as described by Richard Boyatzis as Wisdom, Hope, and Compassion. The latter is a relational skill which like other competencies demonstrate women have a greater edge than men. Several other gender differences will be discussed in brief.
This session discussed how emotional intelligence is the only pathway to achieve and sustain resonant leadership. Application of the Emotional Intelligence Leadership Assessment EQ-i 2.0, reveals the competencies that a leader must excel in to attain wisdom, hope and compassion. Mastering the EQ-i 2.0 competencies on a leadership scale will provide individuals with the tools paramount to a leader’s renewal before dissonance leads to leadership demise.
From Conception to Cessation: Unlocking Emotional Pathways to Humanship
Shené Marsh-Beckford, Ph.D.
Cross-disciplinary researchers and practitioners agree emotions are an indispensable part of the human experience that develops and continues to manifest over the lifespan. Over this period, regardless of its length, individuals are faced with countless opportunities to use their emotions and emotional knowledge to enrich their individual experience and shared interactions. Unfortunately, not all persons cultivate and maximize their social and emotional intelligence skill-sets over their life cycle. Study findings imply these individuals typically have difficulty managing and gauging emotional situations, which also influences their life experiences and communication with others.
In this session, participants were introduced to a fresh way of thinking about how social and emotional learning practices, adapted humanship principles, and refined gamification techniques can be combined to activate an inclusive, human-centered approach and promote skill development.
EST - Emotional Mastery: "Feel It 2 Heal It!"
Matt Perelstein, MCP
There is a science and an art to EQ. Many research, study, experiment and try to measure our thoughts and feelings, but there is more to us than that.
In this presentation, Matt focused on the art of practicing EQ. He took the participants through the 3 Steps to EQ, 4 Steps to Learning, 7 Steps to Turning Negative Feelings into Positives, and 10 Steps to Make your Life Work with EQ. He believes these simple, memorable, repeatable steps to be some of the most practical lessons available. EQ -- our thoughts, feelings and actions -- affect everything we do, every relationship we have and the bottom-line results we achieve (or don't achieve) in life, and they will continue to impact us every second of every day for the rest of our days.
