Through the adept use of interactive group activities, multi-media visuals, real-time polling and engaging lecture and storytelling, he delivers a practical and compelling message with insights that can be implemented immediately. Audience members will leave feeling inspired, empowered and reinvigorated – ready to manage the chaos that gets in the way of bringing their most authentic and brilliant selves to work.
Join us for the October Networking event at ROAM Alpharetta. Featuring a structured networking activity and an opportunity to chat with peers and PMI Atlanta leaders, this event also provides a presentation to improve your project management and professional skills.
Motivated business professionals are looking for every edge to be successful in the workplace. Naturally, many develop expertise in technical or task-oriented skills to enhance their careers. However, those who have a high level of awareness and control over their emotions and use their emotions to connect with others and develop positive relationships will find even greater success in the workplace.
This soft skill is known as emotional intelligence (EQ), and it is an essential element in the business world, especially in high-stress environments. If you are unable to control your emotions, they can preoccupy your thoughts and interfere with your ability to evaluate a situation objectively. On the contrary, knowing what triggers your emotional responses and understanding how to exercise self-control over them enables you to confront difficult issues and manage change with clarity and composure.
Ms. Jordan’s EQ Program is designed to provide you with the knowledge and skills desired by most employers. You’ll learn how to avoid self-sabotaging outcomes by altering how you perceive and respond to emotionally-charged situations. Also, you’ll improve your ability to resolve conflict constructively, create a productive work environment, build and mend relationships, and bounce back from setbacks and disappointment.
