4. eq in an iq world
Pippa Isbell, everywoman expert
Once upon a time, IQ - the measure of verbal and mathematical or logical ability - was considered a key indicator of success. But we all have two minds, the rational and the emotional, how we do in life and in business is determined by both. It has become clear that IQ needs EQ - emotional quotient or intelligence - to function effectively. This session will highlight the variety on the wide spectrum of intelligence that makes us all tick, looking specifically at how to harness interpersonal intelligence to lead, resolve conflicts and understand office politics. EQ, unlike IQ, can be learned and developed throughout life. Start with us in this masterclass.
