RoundTable Description: Emotional Intelligence & the Job Search
Emotional Intelligence, or EQ, is considered the best predictor of success, even more so than IQ. In today’s competitive and uncertain world, EQ competencies are more important than ever. The true test of EQ is being able to successfully demonstrate it under stressful situations, such as career/job transition.
During this RoundTable, we will discuss what EQ is and is not; a model of EQ; how EQ plays out positively and negatively in career/job transition and in the workplace; and strategies for helping our clients, students and ourselves with this very important competency.
Local facilitators will lead a discussion and participants will learn and share resources with each other.
Locations and dates are:
- Southern Minnesota: Wednesday, Nov. 14 from 6:00-7:30 pm at Gustavus Adolphus College, St. Peter, MN
- Twin Cities Metro Area: Thursday, Nov. 15, 6:30-8:00 pm at Davanni’s in Golden Valley
- Online RoundTable: Wednesday, Nov. 14, 12:00pm-1:00 pm
The November RoundTables, like each of MCDA?s monthly RoundTables, are open at no-charge to career counselors and advisors, personal and professional coaches, employment specialists, career services staff, K-12 school counselors, recruiters and human resources professionals.
