//Leading with Ethics and Emotional Intelligence

Leading with Ethics and Emotional Intelligence


Emotional Intelligence (EI) and a strong commitment to personal values are integral to effective leadership. Leaders with these skills are keenly aware of their emotions and the emotions of others, and they use those insights to lead, engage, and empower those around them. This program will help you hone your EI and ethical decision-making skills to make a bigger impact in your organization and become a stronger leader.
