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.
