Everyday Emotional Intelligence for Effective Leaders

While some believe that emotional intelligence (EQ) is a personality trait, many researchers have found support for an ability-based understanding of EQ.  The ability-based model of EQ allows for the idea that EQ is a leadership skill that can be acquired and continuously improved.  In this session, we'll define EQ, distinguish it from IQ, and discuss how EQ contributes to effective leadership.  We'll also talk about EQ in the context of current controversies and examine it as an integrated style of interacting with others instead of an isolated leadership skill.

Teaching to your Strengths Without Ignoring your Weaknesses

As educators we often know our own learning styles, Myers-Briggs personality type, our top 5 Gallup strengths, our True Colors, Holland Code, and so on. We learn what works for us in the classroom, and we rock it. The problem is if we only focus on our strengths, then we run the risk of only teaching to students who learn like we do. Learn strategies to make small tweaks to your teaching that will mean big gains for your students. *If you plan to attend this session and have not taken any of the self assessments mentioned above, please take a free one online or reach out for suggestions
