CEO OF YOU: Leading Change Through Emotional Intelligence  Using emotional intelligence (EI) as the basis of successful leadership can be masterfully implemented by any professional. EI is responsible for 58% of job performance; to be effective, leaders must have a solid understanding of how their emotions and actions affect the people around them. The better an HR professional can relate to those around the table, those within their community and industry, the more successful they will be to lead change and make a difference. Sharpen skills and learn new techniques to drive action, manage change, reduce conflict and build teams – move to the next level of success on the Leadership ladder.
