What to expect from the webinar

This webinar looks at emotional intelligence within strategic communications industries with a focus on women’s leadership styles. The webinar will discuss how EQ generally supports strategic communications and leadership, whether any gender-specific skills impact communication and leadership, and women’s leadership styles within mass communications industries. The speakers aim to provide some practical recommendations for practitioners and open some questions to inform further research.
