Scott Taylor
The Anderson School of Management presents Let's Talk Emotional Intelligence! with Scott Taylor on Friday, Oct. 5 at 4 p.m. as part of UNM's 2012 Homecoming festivities. Taylor, an assistant professor of Organizational Behavior, will discuss Emotional Intelligence (EI) competencies and how these competencies can distinguish outstanding leaders, executives, and managers from average performers.

Taylor will answer the questions: What is EI? and How does EI relate to outstanding leadership and managerial effectiveness? Taylor is a Daniels Fund Business Ethics Fellow and an Anderson Foundation Fellow. The focus of his research is leader assessment and development focusing on competency development, leader self-awareness, management education, multi-source feedback assessment, and sustainable individual change.
