If you want to fast track your career success, join Fiorella Callocchia for this fast-paced webinar where we will share the secrets of highly effective HR professionals and how they differentiate themselves. Their secret? Emotional Intelligence or EI for short…it is the ability to harness the power of our emotions to communicate assertively, build win-win relationships, make sound decisions, and deal effectively with stressors. This webinar will provide an overview of how you can develop your EI skills to enhance your effectiveness as a strategic HR professional and role model for your organization.

HR Professionals have increasingly more demanding and evolving roles. The truth is we are wearing more hats than ever before. So, we must leverage every skill in our toolkit and be continuously learning new competencies to be effective. Research shows emotional intelligence is a critical set of skills to balance out one’s technical competencies to ensure a “balanced portfolio of skills and know how”.
