Renee St Jacques: Emotional intelligence – a critical ingredient to success in the cloud era

As a speaker at the Women in Cloud Summit 2020 this year, I bring a unique blend of expertise in human behavior as a licensed psychologist and executive coach and real world experience as a woman in technology having spent the last nearly two decades in technology in business consulting and marketing roles. There is no maximum to women’s potential. I am passionate about equipping women with the emotional intelligence required to go to the next level so there are no limitations to exceed. 

My topic “Increasing your Emotional Intelligence,” is often neglected in the work environment. Emotional Intelligence is an essential key in any profession and more so in the technology industry. During my interactive talk, I will focus on gaining greater self awareness and the core skills of healthy emotional intelligence, understanding and learning how to manage your emotional reactions, improving interpersonal communication and many other elements that promote one to be emotionally intelligent and get to the next level in your business. 

I desire to empower women with a better emotional intelligence to overcome and thrive in every setting they find themselves – from leading teams effectively, growing as a leader, finding their voice, presenting to investors, to balancing work and personal life. Personally, I do not think there is a better community than Women in Cloud where my knowledge and passion can influence action. Women in Cloud has over the years worked to make technology an accessible industry for women and I hope to contribute to that mission with my expertise and experience. 

At a time where change is the only constant, there is no limit to human potential, especially with women! We are at the cusp of inclusive economic transition. Dreams should now be realities by undertaking ACTION. This will take immense courage and resilience to press past any psychological barriers we impose on ourselves and make things happen. 

Success is 80% psychological and 20% actual hard work, and we need to work collectively to ensure we are not getting in our own way. 

This January at the Summit, I look forward to connecting with other executive coaches and Women who need support in improving in personal development, pursuing career coaching, taking on new ventures, growing in leadership skills, finding their “voice,” thinking more strategically, improving in executive presence, and navigating difficult work situations/relationships. Women in Cloud brings hope for the future generation of women entrepreneurs and I only look to learn and contribute to this positive change.
