After nearly 20 years in corporate industry and academia, Anna combines her professional experiences and academic work, to implement mindful communication practices that increase emotional quotient, or EI, and generate successful business communities.
It is no longer reasonable or appropriate to identify everyday communication skills or “people skills” as “soft”. In a post-pandemic world, leaders, managers, and teammates must trailblaze with empathy and strong emotional quotient or lose out. This work begins with mindful communication.
