We've all had it happen. You say something, and what you say is misinterpreted and blown out of proportion. We've found ourselves frustrated and angry and discouraged. During this session, we'll explore the role of emotional intelligence in improving your communication and interactions. Specifically, we’ll identify four main communication preferences to help you simplify interactions in an effective and clear manner. You'll learn more about your own style and the styles of your teammates and the ways these styles clash and complement one another. Finally, and most importantly, we'll discuss things you can do to be more emotionally intelligent and effective across communication styles.
