Mid-Level Manager Series: Leading with Emotional Intelligence

Hosted by:



Emotional Intelligence (El) is a valuable skill that anyone can develop. And for today’s business leaders, developing El is not optional. The most effective leaders are credible, trustworthy, they build rapport, practice empathy, alleviate resistance to change, and inspire excellence among their teams. Increasingly, companies are seeking out leaders with high El, viewing this quality as a leadership fundamental. Empathy and inclusion are particularly imperative for organizational diversity initiatives to be successful.

Join Chicago United in the first installment of the Mid-Level Manager Series: Leading with Emotional Intelligence. Our keynote speaker, Lisa Harrell, Chief Human Resource Officer, from Cleveland Avenue will share her insights and best practices on Leading with Emotional Intelligence and handling interpersonal work relationships thoughtfully and empathetically.

Lisa has received numerous honors for her contributions to the field of human resources and executive and leadership development and was most recently recognized as a 2021 Business Leaders of Color and 2024 Chicago Defender Woman of Excellence.
