This enrichment program will help you better understand your emotions and effectively develop your emotional intelligence to enhance success.
Emotional intelligence, also called EQ, is the ability to be aware of and to manage emotions and relationships. It's a pivotal factor in professional and personal success. IQ will get you in the door, but it's your EQ — your ability to connect with others and manage the emotions of yourself and others — that will determine how successful you are in life. When we look at the truly extraordinary people who inspire and make a difference, you'll see they connect with people at a personal and emotional level. What differentiated them was not their IQ but their EQ — their emotional intelligence. This enrichment program will help you better understand your emotions and effectively develop your emotional intelligence to enhance success.

Amplifying Your IQ (Innovation Quotient)Contains 2 Component(s), Includes Credits
In this interactive session, attendees will explore two paths for increasing their I-Q (innovation quotient): design thinking and jazz improvisation.
Without question, we are living in a time of unprecedented change and unpredictability. Organizations that cling to the status quo, fearful to experiment with new ideas, are risking obsolescence. This is especially true for law firms, which historically have been averse to risk-taking yet now find themselves facing enormous challenges that require bold, out-of-the-box thinking. In this interactive session, attendees will explore two paths for increasing their I-Q (innovation quotient): design thinking and jazz improvisation. Design thinking encourages practitioners to approach problems and develop solutions in ways that may seem unfamiliar yet are enormously powerful. Jazz improvisation stresses agility, receptivity and finding opportunities in the unexpected. Both "lenses" can be applied immediately to improve firm culture, innovate new client services, and conceive more effective marketing ideas. Come ready to create, collaborate and have fun!
- Explain what I-Q is and why it should matter to the law profession.
- Identify what challenges law firms face in the current business environment and why raising I-Q is critical to success.
- Define design thinking and apply its principles to real work problems.
- Identify key principles of jazz improvisation and apply them to real work problems.
