We here in Leadership and Civic Engagement are in the process of creating some online videos of small tips and tools that can benefit anyone doing leadership or civic engagement work. We recently completed our first batch and would like to share them with you. This is the fifth video in an initial group of five. Check out our archives to see those that came before and thanks to those who have been checking them out each week!


If you have an additional 2 minutes to offer us some feedback on this video, we would appreciate it as we plan to create more online content that meets your needs.

Emotional intelligence is a set of emotional and social skills that influence the way we perceive and express ourselves, develop and maintain social relationships, cope with challenges, and use emotions to understand others in an effective and meaningful way. It is a skill that can be developed and can result in effective relationships, interpersonal growth, and improved self-management - all essential aspects of being a leader!

Participants will take the first scientifically validated instrument to measure emotionally CRasmussen.jpgintelligent behavior, the Bar-On Emotional Quotient Inventory (EQ-i 2.0®). Educators Catie Rasmussen and Mike Liepold will then provide participants with a deeper understanding of their core emotional intelligence skills and help create a plan to enhance those skills too.
