Ally or Adversary? Navigating Professional Relationships at Work

Presented by: SkyeTeam — Chief Executive Officer, Morag Barrett

Work is the toughest team sport any of us will play. But few are equipped with the skills to grow business relationships and bottom-line results. If you can't get your team aligned to deliver results, your success is in jeopardy. In this interactive presentation presented by Morag Barrett, you will learn how to identify your critical stakeholders, diagnose the health of those relationships, and understand the steps to leverage Ally relationships and manage Adversary relationships. This is not a "be nicer" message. It will help you articulate the business and personal impact of relationships; apply the Relationship Ecosystem to diagnose the health and quality of your professional relationships; and determine the next steps to develop your Ally relationships.

Understanding Your Emotional Intelligence: The Art and Science of Human Performance

Presented by: Ultimate Software — Senior Director of HCM Innovation, Dr. Jarik Conrad

Studies show that traditional intelligence, or IQ, is not enough for employees to perform at a consistently high level. Individuals will need to possess not only well-developed intellectual and technical abilities, but also equally impressive social and emotional skills—“emotional intelligence”—to navigate their ever-changing, increasingly stressful work environments. In fact, researchers have determined these skills account for between 27 and 58 percent of job success. During this interactive session, an award-winning author, speaker, and consultant will help you understand how emotions affect decision-making and can often get in the way of connecting with people. He'll provide concrete tools on how to use our whole brains to better understand employees and guide them through their workplace struggles.
