    Self-Control, Persistence & Ability to Motivate Oneself

    This presentation will be largely based on the book Emotional Intelligence by Daniel Goleman, 1995.  The presentation aims to take a scientific, yet practical, look at what it means to truly have great people skills within business and in all areas of life. 

    Our speaker will offer explanations and techniques to improve the attendee’s ability to read emotions, to exercise more self-control, and how to be persistent in the face of adversity; among other concepts for maintaining rational thought.

    Attendees of this presentation will be able to:

    • Articulate the essence of their personality and those around them

    • Understand why empathy is the gateway to mastering emotional intelligence

    • Know how to persist in the face of frustration

    • Recognize how the brain is only trying to help and how to over-ride natural, but counterproductive, impulses

    • Keep distress from completely swamping their ability to think rationally
