I found an interesting webinar on line called Using Emotional Intelligence in Professional Situations. It is a quick and informative session on emotional intelligence and may be very helpful to those of you who want to learn more about the topic.
The downside is that you have to register and then almost immediately you will get a call from Global Knowledge to discuss your training needs. I was a bit put off by the call from Global Knowledge but have come to expect that sort of treatment when I register for "free" information. Rarely is anything free or no strings attached.
It reminds me a little bit of when you first arrive at the airport in Cancun Mexico and you have all these people swarming at you offering help with your luggage, assistance with transportation, and numerous "free gifts" which are invariably linked to hard-sell timeshare presentations. Unwary travelers may get sucked in and feel compelled to respond in kind to these offers.
If you want strings-free information and resources on emotional intelligence, look no further than this site. My emotional intelligence foundations page provides a wealth of easily digested materials on emotional intelligence and how to apply it to project management. And you don’t need to worry about me calling you up to ask you about your training needs…or selling you a timeshare.
