Continuing that conversation, we will discuss practical ways to improve our Emotional Intelligence. NOTES from last week: BBC_27August2021.

Notes from this week’s delightful discussion of Emotional Intelligence w/Roslyn Webber: BBC_3Sep2021

Consider the four core EQ skills How can we improve our skills in each of those four areas?”      ==> 

Roslyn Webber is a workplace behavioral expert adept at analyzing what drives day-to-day behavior through assessments and workshops, applying that data to teach clients how to better manage and communicate more effectively.

A PI (Predictive Index) Certified Partner within Seabold Consulting (seaboldconsulting.com), Roslyn is also the Kitsap Group Leader for Excell Puget Sound (excellpugetsound.com). Roslyn on linkedin.com

A brief history of EQ:  emotionalintelligencecourse.com/history-of-eq/.
