Building Leadership Competency with Emotional, Social, and Cultural Intelligence

Building Leadership Competency requires the interface of Emotional - EQ, Social - SQ, and Cultural - CQ, Intelligence. The Competency Formula consists of integrating three factors: Knowledge + Skills + Abilities. 

From this webinar, you will be able to:

- First learning objective - Knowledge. From research and experience, define EQ, SQ, and CQ and how the interface of EQ, SQ, and CQ applies to our working environments. 
- Second learning objective - Skills. Hone our learned, forgotten, or little used skills to assimilate lessons learned from integrated EQ, SQ, and CQ and recognize our day to day as well as long term professional challenges. 
-Third learning objective - Abilities. Use our engaged, full brain thinking to incorporate our Knowledge and Skills into Abilities to effectively manage professional challenges such as talent retention, change in changing times, and resilience.  
- Fourth learning Objective - Leadership Competency. Competent, effective leaders at all levels, place trust as the keystone of our organizations. Effective leaders empower, recognize, and develop talent. They keep the health of the organization in mind as they weed out the causes and symptoms of dysfunction. They communicate with mindfulness every step of the way toward organizational health and fitness. The EQ, SQ, and CQ gauging tools, and organizational health assessments will be drawn from my book "Puliziotta's Organizational Health and Fitness - Strategies and Lessons Learned in Zapping the DYSfunctional Virus" (

Effective Test Questions

Writing effective questions for tests, certifications, and other types of training is essential to assessing learning outcomes and participant knowledge. However, training around writing quality questions is not provided in many subject areas or graduate programs. This webinar will focus on some of the basics of writing high quality assessment items. To meet this focus, the following outcomes will be addressed where participants will: 
• Examine test items to avoid correct answers using common test-taking strategies; 
• Discuss specific ways to phrase questions and answer alternatives to ensure the question is measuring the intended knowledge; 
• Analyze types of questions and phrases applicable to writing questions in accordance to Bloom’s Taxonomy.
