What You'll Learn

Day 1

Seizing Opportunities with digitalEQ™

People are emotional beings and emotions underlie decision-making; it’s a scientific fact.

 

What client experience has taught us in the past few years? The need to connect emotionally has never been stronger. Behavioral science tells us that humans facing consequential decisions draw primarily on their emotional intelligence (EQ). But how do you make those influential connections in the digital sphere? At the intersection of emotional intelligence and digital influence is digitalEQ™.

 

If EQ is the ability to discern, comprehend and manage our own emotions as well those of others, digitalEQ (digital emotional intelligence) is the ability to evolve and apply EQ through digital channels. This powerful session is designed to help you shift toward more authentic and personalized client engagement. The goal? To foster deeper emotional connections that drive long-term, mutually rewarding client commitments and relationships.

 

You’ll learn to:

• Close more business by fusing technology, empathy, marketing strategy and brand equity with emotional intelligence

• Increase your team’s productivity during a time of client transitions by communicating EQ in every interaction

• Empower your team to deepen relationships by leveraging EQ— even in a fast-paced business environment

• Discover how empathy and patience lead to more constructive conversations, making clients happier and relationships potentially more profitable
