February 3, Emotional Intelligence (EQ): The Key to Personal and Professional Success

Webinar Synopsis

Professional development programs are designed for subject matter proficiency. We earn certificates and designations, yet none of these mean we will excel. In the real world, our level of emotional intelligence is the primary predictor of success. Most fail to study or teach it. It’s time we did.

Learning Outcomes (by the end of this learning session, participants will be able to):

  1. Gain a basic understanding of the framework of emotional intelligence using the Goleman model.
  2. Learn how to assess emotional intelligence in yourself and your associates (colleagues, employees, fellow association leaders, clients).
  3. Learn how to cultivate emotional intelligence by recognizing what EQ is and where you (or others around you) may have strengths and opportunities.
  4. Understand how development of emotional intelligence is a crucial component of professional education in order to thrive.


Tom Willis has over 30 years of experience serving community associations. He is an experienced speaker and CAI member. Mr. Willis has spoken at numerous CAI events including the Washington Metro Expo and the Virgina Leadership Retreat.
