Stop your instincts from ruining your career: the science behind emotional intelligence

Presented by: Natalie Hylton

According to the Center for Creative Leadership, 75% of careers are derailed for reasons related to emotional competencies, including inability to handle interpersonal problems, unsatisfactory team leadership in times of difficulty or conflict, or inability to adapt to change or elicit trust.
This is not new, you may say. We know WHAT to do, and HOW we should act. So why don’t we? There are reasons behind our “illogical” behaviours. And those reasons are rooted in our desire… to survive. This session dives into the neuroscience of emotions and offers plenty of practical tips on how we can learn to control them better and consistently. Your boss/customer/spouse (select the correct answer) is not a saber-toothed tiger, so don’t let your brain treat them as one!
