PaACC Education Leadership Series Emotional Intelligence Coaching

Everyone has a unique leadership journey, but it starts somewhere. The Pennsylvania Chapter ACC is committed to helping the next generation of leaders develop skills and refine their talents to propel them forward on their journey.

One of the basic building blocks of leadership is a strong sense of self-awareness. Being self-aware goes hand-in-hand with emotional intelligence. This six-week leadership series aims to provide members with a more definite understanding of their leadership style and how that style drives decision making. Members will then explore how to understand and influence others, adapt their leadership style to the challenges at hand and drive their personal and organizational vision forward by building solid and inspired teams.
