Emotional Intelligence: How EQ Can Make a Difference in Your Criminal Justice Career (Webinar)

Event Dates
Emotional Intelligence is the combination of several social and emotional components that work together to determine how well we utilize our skills of self-perception, self-expression, the way we build and maintain relationships, solve conflict, and manage stressful challenges.

It also plays an important role in how we approach decision making.
