Navigating the 2020 Roller Coaster: Leveraging Emotional Intelligence to Lead in a Crisis
COVID-19 has changed the landscape of emotions we experience every day. The frequency with which we all experience stress, fear, anger, fatigue and grief has increased. Self-care is more important than ever to women in STEM. This webinar will focus on emotional intelligence (EQ), taking a deeper look at our own emotions and those of others around us. As a science professional, you know that emotions are running high across your organization. While colleagues may struggle to overcome challenges they’ve never experienced or imagined before, you can help them manage and thrive by gaining insight and delving into the inner workings of our emotional response to major disruptors. Please join us for this interactive session with Andrea Hoban, Co-Founder and head of learning at Oji Life Lab.
