Leadership Training

If you’re looking to become a stronger leader, both at work and at home - it turns out success is an inside job.

We're referring to emotional intelligence, which refers to the capacity to control and express one's emotions while handling relationships judiciously.

Kelly Mannel is founder and president of Image Partners Inc., and a thought leader in the field of emotional intelligence. She’s leading a two-day workshop this weekend, during which attendees will learn how mindfulness and emotional intelligence drive success, and why you should look within before you seek to lead on the outside.

She joined us with a preview.
