You’ve heard of IQ, but did you know that EQ may be more valuable in a job search?
Emotional intelligence, or EQ, refers to the non-cognitive skills that make us personally and socially more competent and successful. And—the good news is, you can learn how to build your EQ skill set! At 6:30 p.m. on Monday July 11, JVS Career Services will host Founder and President of EQ Coaching solutions, Lisa Kappesser, for an evening of networking, hors d’oeuvres, and EQ pointers at 3825 Edwards Road, Room 210 in Cincinnati.
During the workshop, entitled “Use Emotional Intelligence to Land the Right Job,” Kappesser will provide attendees with the know-how to tap into, fine tune, and leverage their own emotional intelligence.
“Lisa brings a quarter of a century of experience in this field,” said Joni Burton, CEO of JVS Career Services. “She’s helped thousands of people transform their careers by helping them understand their own emotional intelligence potential, and how to harness that.”
Kappesser has worked with professionals at industry leading companies, such as Proctor and Gamble, Fifth Third Bank Corp., Coca Cola Enterprises, Kroger, Macy’s, and the University of Cincinnati, among others. She’s also developed emotional intelligence programs for businesses and organizations, and collaborated with The Carl H. Lindner College of Business Faculty to develop and implement a “Professionalism” course for undergraduate students.
“This seminar is for everyone. Whether you’re just starting out on your career path, or you’re looking for a new opportunity, you’ll return to your job search with some valuable insights on a subject that’s rarely discussed, but can be incredibly impactful,” Burton said.
