As a follow-up to his immensely popular keynote track at the Harvard Coaching Conference in 2015, we are excited to bring back Dr. Marc Brackett for a "deeper dive" workshop on the science and practice of emotional intelligence. As coaches we all know the importance of supporting our clients in developing greater EI in order to attain optimal performance as leaders or professionals in today's complex world. In this presentation, Dr. Brackett will describe the theory of emotional intelligence (EI) developed at the Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence, including how EI is best measured and what it predicts about people's lives. The five key EI skills: recognizing, understanding, labeling, expressing, and regulating emotion-- will be examined. The program will also include interactive learning activities, offering coaches new and innovative approaches to engage in this critical area with clients.
