April 2018 Chapter Meeting: Emotional Intelligence – The Science and Learning
Presented by: Russ Keefer, SPHR - ret. CHRO, Trios Health

The concept of Emotional Intelligence (EI) first appeared to the masses in the 1990’s, and it served as the missing link in a peculiar finding: people with average IQs outperform those with the highest IQs 70% of the time. This anomaly threw a massive wrench into what many people had always assumed was the sole source of success—IQ. Decades of research now point to emotional intelligence as the critical factor that sets star performers apart from the rest of the pack.  Emotional intelligence is the “something” in each of us that is a bit intangible. It affects how we manage behavior, navigate social complexities, and make personal decisions that achieve positive results.  In this session we will take an introductory look at EI with the goal of starting a journey of professional development, that enhances how you relate to, and work with others.
