We’re concluding our April focus on “Leading with Courage” this week with a curated episode on maximizing emotional intelligence. So far we’ve talked about the courage to lead, the courage to have difficult conversations–and this week we’re diving into the “Courage to Get Curious.”

Being curious is a first step in developing one’s emotional intelligence which we’ve seen in a myriad of research is an imperative trait of effective leaders. To help us on this journey, we’re revisiting two episodes featuring experts on this topic: Dr. Irvine Nugent and Mazi Robinson!

02:30 Dr. Nugent and host, Brandon Smith, discuss self-awareness and managing emotions.

19:30 Mazi joins to talk emotional safety and empathy.
