Free PCS eLearning Tutorial-Thinking and Interacting Like A Leader
All managers have power over some members of their organizations. However, managers who are also organizational leaders have an additional source of power: they influence people using 'emotional intelligence.' Dr. Kim Sydow Campbell, associate dean for Assessment & Continuous Improvement at the Culverhouse College of Commerce at the University of Alabama, has created an eLearning Tutorial that can help you develop your emotional intelligence so you can think and interact like a leader. This effective tutorial will teach you how to make the most of your communication and leadership skills, skills that are crucial as you move up the engineering career ladder. You can learn more about Kim at her blog.
In order to access the free eLearning tutorial, simply click here and sign in with your IEEE account. The free tutorial will be in your cart. In the cart, enter promotion code EDP162FREE and click "Apply". Proceed to Checkout.
