May 11, 2021 | 3:00 - 5:00PM ET

June 8 | 4:00 - 5:00PM ET

What makes someone great at their job? Having knowledge, smarts, and vision, to be sure. But what really distinguishes successful leaders is emotional intelligence. According to the Harvard Business Review, emotional intelligence is the deciding factor responsible for moving people up the ladder when IQ and technical skills among candidates are tied – about 90% of the time.

Demonstrating proficiency in emotional intelligence is a critical skill required across all roles in the investment industry. You need to be resilient, understand how you react and respond in different situations, and have the competence to guide clients and stakeholders to make important and strategic decisions. The good news is that unlike IQ, emotional intelligence can be cultivated through awareness and practice.

CFAW has partnered with MOR Associates to offer a hands-on, interactive program led by a team of leadership coaches. The program starts with a two-hour competency building workshop. Then, two weeks later (May 25), a facilitated deeper dive with leadership coaches in a group setting. The training concludes with a 1-hour workshop on June 8th.

Tech Wreck or Table Stakes? 
The Current State of Cryptocurrency
Cryptocurrency - Old Website.png
April 22
4:30 - 5:30 PM ET  

Is it a currency? Is it a commodity? Does it contain an embedded store of value? Who is really controlling it? 

There are many questions floating around about cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin, Ethereum and Litecoin as well as the platforms where they trade. As the public has experienced FOMO (fear of missing out) from observing the 602,500% increase in Bitcoin’s value over the 13 years it has existed, questions of efficacy have made it out of hacker chat rooms and into your mother’s kitchen. Come hear a balanced perspective from two speakers on the potential benefits and risks of cryptocurrencies. We hope you walk away with both a deeper institutional understanding of “crypto” that can be applied to your practice and a stock of retail soundbytes to satiate even the least sophisticated investors in your circle.
