Alumni Listening Sessions
Leadership Wisconsin held three listening sessions for alumni and former board/staff to discuss our future directions. We are very grateful for the thoughtful feedback from our alumni and are excited for what is to come. We have created a summary of what we heard from you.

Virtual Book Club: On Emotional Intelligence
Registration is open for our next title in the Virtual Book Club, Harvard Business Review’s 10 Must Reads On Emotional Intelligence.
Emotional intelligence has been identified by multiple researchers as the key to effective leadership and effective teams. But what exactly is it? Does it just come naturally, or can we learn it? The great news is, everybody can improve their emotional intelligence. In this compilation, Harvard Business Review brings us 10 key articles that explain what emotional intelligence is, why it’s so important, how it affects performance, and how we can improve our “emotional agility” both for our own well-being and for the benefit of our colleagues and organizations.
