TAMPA — Research shows that emotions are essentially contagious, and thus a leader’s attitude and energy can “infect” a workplace either for better or for worse.
Learn the skills you need to be a strong, emotionally intelligent leader at The University of Tampa’s Emotional Intelligence for Leaders, presented by the Sykes College of Business TECO Energy Center for Leadership and the Society for Emotional Intelligence.
