The Hard Case for Soft Skills

Oct 03
And Why Emotional Intelligence is Critical


If you accept that “people” are a key ingredient in the success of all projects, then understanding what makes them tick and how they can work together for better outcomes has to be a top priority.

In this participative and fun workshop, Alan Slater will challenge attendees on:

  • What is Emotional Intelligence [EQ] – and what it’s not
  • Why it includes but is much more than just personality profiling
  • Dispelling the soft and fuzzy, tree-hugging image of EQ
  • The role of EQ in stakeholder engagement, and
  • The bottom line – what impact does EQ have on “profit”? 
Attendees will:
  • Gain a better understanding of what EQ actually is and is not
  • Learn how to apply better EQ methods on Project Management, and
  • Know how to improve your own EQ
