Putting Social Intelligence to Work
for Women in STEM

October 22, 2014, 6pm, Drexel Med (East Falls)

Janet Lorenz, Founder, & Daryl Nardick, PhD, Senior Principal
Creative Leadership, LLC

Women in science have come far over the past 50 years and yet there are still barriers to full participation – visible and invisible – for us to break through. Learning and practicing social intelliggence skills for leading can help us make this happen. Social intelligence - SI - describes the intra- and interpersonal competencies that help individuals and groups build effective relationships, frame the "right" problem, bring awareness to emotions, and navigate challenging situations. Research in psychology and neuroscience by Daniel Goleman, Carol Dweck, Richard Boyatzis and others shows that embracing and practicing SI is a key leadership ability that delivers both personal and professional value.

In this 2 hour program we will learn the components and key behaviors of SI, examine data around its effectiveness, and engage in applying SI thinking, practices and choices to one to two real world scenarios that scientists may face in the course of their career.
