Emotional Competence (EQ): Implications for OD Practitioners

 Registration is closed for this event

The business case for developing emotional competence (EQ) in leaders, work groups, and organizations has been well known since Daniel Goleman popularized the term in his bestselling book Emotional Intelligence: Why It Can Matter More than IQ.

We are pleased to have Dr. Terrence Maltibia from the Department of Organization and Leadership at Teachers College, Columbia University, lead an interactive discussion which will highlight:

  • The various ways EQ can be described as a psychological concept
  • Three common approaches to measuring EQ
  • Opportunities for OD practitioners to integrate evidence-based EQ strategies into their overall approach to change leadership

Don’t miss this chance to engage in conversation around an increasingly relevant dimension of organization development.
