It's a topic that has intrigued ROTC Spartan Battalion Commander Carla Shapira '18 about leadership, whether it's on the battlefield or in the board room: emotional intelligence.
"Emotional intelligence applies to absolutely every aspect of your life. I have learned to manage my emotions better and communicate with people better, have better relationships by understanding that I do certain things certain ways and how that might be conveyed to other people," Shapira said. "You're really just understanding yourself and your emotions and using that understanding as tools for making relationships with others."
Shapira, an international business and management major, discusses the topic often in her courses in UT's leadership studies minor. So when she found out that emotional intelligence was the theme of the annual George C. Marshall Leadership Seminar at Fort Leavenworth, KS, for which she was nominated to attend, Shapira was thrilled.
