Emotional Intelligence is a must-have skill for professionals and directly impacts a project manager’s ability to lead and create successful teams. Although IQ is the biggest predictor to land a project, EQ is often the biggest predictor of that project’s success. Join me for a fun and enlightening conversation about Emotional Intelligence.
