On June 26th 2014, Salim Ladak, CEO of EQ How, will be the onstage Speaker at the Society of Actuaries (SOA) Asia Pacific Annual Symposium, to be held in Macau. This 4th Annual event for global actuaries and professionals will focus on the theme of “Breaking New Ground: New Skills, Techniques and Trends.” Registration is now available through SOA.
Salim’s onstage topic is Getting Promoted to Success. Beginning with the satirical Peter Principle that people tend to get promoted to their level of incompetence, he will illustrate how and why Emotional Intelligence (EQ) can enable actuaries to succeed as they take on roles of increasing leadership. Competencies that support their climb up the corporate ladder include influence, teamwork and collaboration, conflict management, developing others, being a change catalyst and inspirational leadership. Salim will share stories and highlight examples based on the two leading EQ models – the EQ-i 2.0 and the Daniel Goleman Competency Framework.
Salim recently spoke on Leadership Success to 130 managers at PMI Hong Kong, where he posed below for a photo with Anthony Tsui, VP Programs (Select Testimonial).
