  L’Intelligenza Emotiva: Questa Sconosciuta
La Nuova Frontiera dell’Efficacia Personale e Manageriale
Milano, 29 Aprile - Ore 18:15 - Centrobanca

Il ruolo che le emozioni giocano nell’ambito della efficacia manageriale e personale è spesso sottovalutato. La nostra formazione è particolarmente orientata all'acquisizione di competenze “tecniche”, necessarie ma non sufficienti. Esiste un insieme di competenze trasversali che completa il profilo del professionista di successo e l’Intelligenza Emotiva, quasi un ossimoro per molti, è una di queste: per fortuna la scienza ci dimostra che è migliorabile!
Davide Antonio Carabella, Professional Counselor ed Executive Trainer, ci guiderà in questa serata dedicata alla scoperta dell’Intelligenza Emotiva.
