"Emotional Intelligence: Calming the Emotional Storm to Achieve the Results You Desire"



Kevin Pitts

Adjunct Professor

Drexel University

Advance Registration Ends at

 3pm on Monday, April 9th

Program Summary

Emotional Intelligence (EI) or Emotional Quotient (EQ) is the capability of individuals to recognize their own, and other people's emotions, to discern between different feelings and label them appropriately, to use emotional information to guide thinking and behavior, and to manage and/or adjust emotions to adapt environments or achieve one's goal(s).

What do managers and professionals need to succeed? They need to be very smart and they need superb technical skills. But beyond analytical intelligence and technical skills, professionals need other skills to better lead people, communicate effectively, adapt to different cultures, read people, and handle stressful situations. It is an effective  professional who can accurately perceive how you and others feel, use these feelings to assist with the task at hand, understand how these feelings arose and how they will change, and then manage these feelings effectively to achieve a positive outcome.

Program Objectives

  • Develop and use the four key emotional skills of leadership to achieve objectives. 
  • Apply the Emotional Intelligence Blueprint as a template for learning.
  • Acquire a process to address key issues and problems in your work life.
