    Noon– 1:00 p.m.: PRESENTATION

    Performance in any area of life is a function of talent, skill and decision-making. Of the three, decision-making has twice the impact on performance than talent and skill combined.  It’s not that talent and skill don’t matter; they just don’t matter as much as decision-making. Unlike our IQ which we can’t significantly improve, through deepening our emotional competence we can enhance our decision-making, particularly under pressure.  Emotional competence prevents sabotage of our effectiveness due to emotional reactions that sometimes cloud our judgment and undermine personal and organizational results. This presentation will introduce you to the barriers of effective decision-making and how to enhance your ability to think clearly and make better decisions, especially in emotionally charged situations.

    NOTE:  This program has been submitted for 1 hour of strategic CEU credit.
