On the Menu: Emotional Intelligence for Leaders

Emotionally intelligent leaders possess the skills to prosper even in challenging environments. Whether you lead yourself or a team of 100, you too can harness what the top leaders do.

By the end of this session you will:

• Understand what emotional intelligence really means and why it is becoming the gold standard for working with and leading others

• Learn to effectively manage yourself and your relationships

• Become more aware of approaches to using emotional intelligence to manage stress, burnout, and other critical challenges — for yourself and others

• Be able to apply the best practices of an emotionally intelligent leader and give yourself a winning edge

In an effort to keep this event accessible, we will be offering a hybrid experience for participants. When checking out, be mindful to select between an “In-Person Ticket” and a “Zoom Ticket”.

What’s On The Menu?

At Frontier RTP, we are constantly growing, and hope you will come along for the ride! We developed On the Menu as a way of helping you and your business grow to the next level, whatever that next level may be.

Each month, we offer a lunchtime workshop on a special topic related to small businesses or startups. On the Menu is taught by a diverse group of experts from around the Triangle (some of whom started their business here at Frontier RTP!) in a small group setting.

Our hope is that these workshops will not only be rich in content, but spark dialogue, start relationships, and make your lunch break meaningful. Did we mention there will be food? For those joining us in-person, there will be a free lunch available. If you are joining us virtually, we invite you to bring your lunch to the Zoom. No shame in eating with your camera on!

We want you to easily access our events and webinars. Feel free to reach out to us with accommodation requests at and we’ll do our best to facilitate.

Thank you to this month’s sponsor, Barnes and Thornburg LLP., for making this event possible!
