Emotional Intelligence practitioners are trained to help individuals, teams, and organizations increase awareness, shift mindsets, and demonstrate behaviors that result in higher levels of happiness and success. But, in the same way the cobbler's children have no shoes, EI practitioners often neglect themselves when it comes to intentionally applying and reflecting upon their own development as emotionally intelligent individuals.
In this session, you will hear how one EI practitioner brought her professional training to life in a very personal way as she faced a life-changing - potentially life-threatening - experience. The discussion will include:
- How she used her EQ-i 2.0 assessment results to prepare mentally and emotionally.
- What she learned about herself along the way.
- How she continues to apply that learning in work and life.
