Attend this interactive presentation by two trained EQ coaches who will illuminate how developing EQ can increase your potential and success, both at work and in life. Learn about key aspects of internal focus, such as self-control and self-confidence; gain insights from examples of today’s leaders; and acquire practical tools — to set you and your team upon a path of continuous development.
