(Albuquerque, NM) The Anderson School of Management presents Let's Talk Emotional Intelligence! with Dr. Scott Taylor on Friday, October 5 as part of UNM's 2012 Homecoming festivities.

Dr. Taylor, an Assistant Professor of Organizational Behavior, will discuss Emotional Intelligence (EI) competencies and how these competencies can distinguish outstanding leaders, executives, and managers from average performers. He will answer the questions: What is EI? and How does EI relate to outstanding leadership and managerial effectiveness? Dr. Taylor is a Daniels Fund Business Ethics Fellow and an Anderson Foundation Fellow. The primary focus of his research is leader assessment and development. His research focuses on competency development, leader self-awareness, management education, multi-source feedback assessment, and sustainable individual change.

At the conclusion of the Alumni Homecoming Speaker Series all attendees and Anderson alums are invited to a UNM Anderson Homecoming Reunion Reception at the newly renovated Hodgin Hall from 6:30-9:00 PM.
