Here at A&M Law we have the Professional Development Series, which I believe plays a role in developing our EQ as students here. But for those students who may be stuck in a world where your EQ is shadowed behind your GPA, we hope to provide some tips to develop that soon!

Jack Manhire is the Director of Program Development for Texas A&M School of Law. His flagship programs, Breaking Bias and the Diversity Leadership Program, create leaders in any organization who break barriers of bias to produce highly-engaged and top-performing teams.

You can contact Jack at jmanhire@law.tamu.edu to learn more about these and other programs to help your organization perform at its best.
