EMOTIONAL EINSTEINS: HOW LOGICAL LEADERS LEARN EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE: A Fresh, Practical Approach to Harnessing Emotional Intelligence [READ MORE]


Emotional intelligence (EI) is responsible for up to 59% of job performance, yet the vast majority of leaders lack a systematic approach to developing and harnessing this mission-critical attribute. To make matters worse, emotional intelligence often declines as leaders become more powerful, according to Harvard Business Review article "Becoming Powerful Makes You Less Empathetic". In this inspiring, vulnerable and practical keynote, Krister - a former "bad boss" himself - describes the surprising techniques that he used to develop his own emotional intelligence on his journey from bad boss to award-winning CEO of a 5 time Top Workplace company. Attendees will emerge with a systematic approach to cultivating EI to engage team members, drive growth, and fuel sustainable success.
