Lawyer Well-Being: Developing Emotional Intelligence

1:00 – 2:45 p.m.
Master Series presented by the Illinois State Bar Association
Lawyers are particularly vulnerable to stress and anxiety due to the competitive and demanding nature of the practice.  In this session our speaker will show how developing your emotional intelligence will help you cope with some of these anxieties and stresses. The speaker will explain the five domains of emotional intelligence: self-awareness, self-regulation, self-motivation, empathy, and social skills (or DiSC). This interactive seminar uses group discussion to explore each of these areas to help you better understand: knowing when emotions are guiding you, the difference between self-regulation and suppressing emotions, jumping to negative conclusions, how to listen empathically, and much more. Requires separate registration.
