Emotional Intelligence, Efficacy, and Success

Tampa Marriott Westshore Hotel
1001 N Westshore Boulevard
Tampa, FL 33607

Have you ever wished you could change your students’ or colleagues’ attitudes toward more positive engagement in their work? YOU CAN! The secret is appreciating that all of us, as leaders within our classrooms and professional areas, have a profound impact upon the emotional state of the people with whom we engage each day. During this interactive and fun workshop, participants explore ways faculty and other professional colleagues can increase student success and professional growth and collaboration by improving attitudes toward work, relationships, and learning. Participants also explore ways to encourage a mindset that leads to a stronger sense of self-efficacy and a more persistent effort among our students and our colleagues, as well as within our academic and professional communities.

Participate in a 60-second paper, roleplaying demonstrations, pair and share activities, and interviews with feedback.

  • Demonstrate the emotional impact of every single communication.

  • Identify, nurture, and develop talents, rather than focus on weaknesses.
