Product Description

Overview

Emotional intelligence (EI) is how we express and manage emotions – our own, and the emotional response of others. Studies indicate that clergy and religious with high levels of emotional intelligence report elevated work satisfaction, strong leadership potential, effective conflict management style, advanced empathy skills and healthy relationships with their peers and congregants. In the second of this two-part series, Rev. Hugh Lagan, SMA, Psy.D., explores how emotional intelligence can help us successfully navigate complicated relationships.
