Leveraging Emotional Intelligence and Diversity in Public Health Webinar, Region IV Public Health Training Center

Category : News/Events

Overview:

This is a live webinar on February 9, 2024, from 12-1:30 pm ET. Participants will use Zoom to join.

During this 90-minute webinar we will explore what it means to develop your emotional intelligence across lines of difference. In addition to reviewing the foundational EQ (Emotional Quotient) framework developed by Goleman (1995), we will explore the emotional intelligence and diversity model developed by Gardenswartz, Cherbosque, and Rowe (2010). Public health professionals attending this webinar will understand how EQ influences their own worldview, gain insights into others’ perceptions and the importance of managing emotions and building relationships with people from diverse backgrounds, intellects, and cultural perspectives. The webinar will conclude with strategies to create environments where public health efforts can succeed, and diversity can thrive.
