YOU ARE INVITED TO PARTICIPATE
I came across an interesting website for project managers. The site studies the importance of emotional and cultural intelligence (plus some other attributes) of
project managers in relation to their project management performance.
It offers free assessment in those two intelligence quotients (EQ & CQ). Such professional assessments normally cost hundreds of dollars but the site's free assessment is for a limited time only. The assessments were designed by pioneers and eminent researchers in the respective fields. I recommend you to check it out because it may be beneficial to your career.
