Using Emotional Intelligence to Earn Greater Success 

Navigating Change in an Ever-Changing Work World

The 2022 WIP Leadership Forum is an excellent opportunity to develop your leadership skills in the workplace as Alyson Van Hooser & Phillip Van Hooser discuss emotional intelligence and how mastering that can set you up for success.

In a world where constant change is radically shifting the way we operate on a daily basis, those who can accurately predict and understand emotions will be the high-performing, solid decision-making professionals who crush their goals in the end. Do you want to be one of them?

Through practical, uncommon commonsense approaches that are immediately actionable, attendees will leave this session equipped to better lead themselves and their team through change and toward success.
