As Extension strives to empower individuals with effective leadership skills, it has become apparent that there is a need to enhance participants’ effectiveness in handling complex situations, communicating effectively, and moderating their ability to react.Extension’s U‐Lead cohort leadership programs have a strong track record of building cognitive and analytical skills. However, a key component to being an effective leader today is “emotional intelligence.” Emotional Intelligence is best defined as the ability to identify and manage emotional information in oneself and others and focus energy on required behaviors.
