Helpful Resources: Increase your Emotional Intelligence (EQ)

Posted Nov 20, 2017 01:50 PM
Many people in our sector are feeling high levels of stress. Added to the usual challenges of our sector are concerns about federal actions and changes to laws that will impact the people we serve and our community. What can help you navigate through these murky waters? Building your Emotional Intelligence (EQ).

Developing your EQ will help you understand, manage, and effectively express feelings, as well as successfully engage and navigate the emotions of others.

EQ will be the topic of our next staff development workshop on Dec. 12. This training is especially relevant as nonprofit staff/leaders are increasingly engaging around topics like inclusion, racism, privilege, and sexual harassment. We’ve compiled materials to help you understand how you can increase your EQ.
