Harvard research found that emotional intelligence represents up to 80% of what it takes to be successful, over IQ and technical skills combined.  Some of the EQ competencies include optimism – overcoming obstacles and creatively finding solutions, impulse control – resisting the urge to react emotionally under stress, and trust – the element that increases the speed and decreases the cost of doing business.  Join us for this eye-opening topic and learn to harness the power of your emotions to ensure your business success. read more about Dawn>>
