1. I just reviewed my takeaways from Session 1 with my boss. I found the session on Emotional
Intelligence to be the most compelling. So often I have focused my internal development on
gaining outward knowledge. I see emotional intelligence as internal knowledge; gaining a greater
awareness of my impact on others. I am especially focused on myself talk-my own voice. This is
the most important influencer to my leadership.
2. Thank you for providing a forum for other Hispanic professionals. There have been times I have
felt isolated; trying to figure out assimilation without loss of culture. Seeing so many successful
Latino professionals with a variety of backgrounds and experiences was inspiring.
