On Tuesday, April 19, from noon to 1 p.m. in the Northwest Lounge of Montana State University's Student Union Building, the MSU Leadership Institute will present the last Leadership Topics Lunch of the year, "Honoring Personal Power Š Leading with Emotional Intelligence."

Hosted by the MSU Leadership Institute and facilitated by MSU students Rachel Hofacker and Samantha Rauser, the panel discussion focuses on the importance of emotional intelligence in leadership. Hofacker and Rauser, both sophomores at MSU, will lead the panel and audience through a series of student generated questions that include "How should emotional intelligence be applied within a leadership role?" and "How do we increase our personal level of emotional intelligence?"

Bonnie Sachatello-Sawyer, the director of MSU's Native Waters and Mark Sheehan, chief information officer of MSU's Information Technology Center, will speak on their experience of leading while using emotional intelligence. The public will have the opportunity to ask questions and engage in a discussion.

This event is free and open to the public.
