Marie Peeler of Peeler Associates to Lead Workshop at MASSBUYS XVIII April 28

PEMBROKE and FOXBORO, MA, ISSUED MARCH 7, 2016… Peeler Associates, an executive coaching and leadership development firm working with individuals and organizations to increase their leadership effectiveness, today announced that Marie Peeler, CEO, was once again selected to speak at the MASSBUYS Expo, being held on April 28, 2016, at Gillette Stadium in Foxboro, Mass. Peeler will lead the workshop, “How to Be an Emotionally Intelligent Leader (and Why).”

MASSBUYS XVIII is hosted by the Operational Services Division and is the largest business-to-government tradeshow in Massachusetts, offering a unique opportunity to network with both public procurement officials and the supplier community.

Peeler’s interactive workshop will help leaders understand what it means to be “emotionally intelligent” as well as why it’s important to improve this area of intellect. Peeler will also identify for participants strategies they can use to increase their own emotional intelligence, and thereby anticipate better results.

“Emotional intelligence has been one of the most talked about leadership concepts over the last 20 years, with some even crediting this quality as a more reliable determinate of success than traditional IQ,” said Peeler. “Through this workshop, leaders will be able to recognize the main skills involved in emotional intelligence, as well as be introduced to a tool that can immediately help them increase their own emotional intelligence.”
