September LCHRMA Event

Lower Columbia Human Resources Management Association (LCHRMA) proudly presents:

Key Skills for Raising Emotional Intelligence (EQ)
Friday September 28, 2018 8:30 am – 12:30 pm
Tongue Point Job Corp Vista Way Cafe
Astoria Oregon

Many of us find it increasingly difficult to connect in the modern world, both with ourselves and others. An important factor in our ability to successfully connect is emotional intelligence. When it comes to happiness and success in our relationships, career and personal goals, emotional intelligence (EQ) matters just as much as the more well known, intellectual ability (IQ). We need emotional intelligence to turn intention into action, in order to make informed decisions about the things that matter most to us, and to connect to others in productive and nurturing ways.
