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/.

Experimental Virtual/In-person BBC Friday 9 July 2021 @OfficeXpats

Welcome to our first post-COVID hybrid BBC Friday, both in-person and virtual Zoomed. @OfficeXpats

For those fully vaccinated, you may join us at OfficeXpats this Friday for our first kinda-post-COVID combination virtual (Zoom) and in-person BBC Friday. We’ll continue to use the same vBBC Zoom meeting link for those who want to stay virtual (late risers, south end islanders, cross the bridge BBC regulars, off world space travelers).

Discussion topic: How can we do a “hybrid virtual & in-person” business meeting (some Zoomed in on the big screen and some in person here at OfficeXpats)? How does one moderate a hybrid meeting? How do we hold a roundtable discussion when half are at the table and half are on the virtual table on the big screen? A total BBC Experiment In Virtual/Non-virtual Reality.

Previous meeting’s discussion notes: BBC_YearWhatever_9July2021

Be here, be free, be businesswise. For, in a sense, me hearties, as serial entrepreneurials, we all be business wise! Really.

So Invite your friends and associates to join us for this oddly HYBRID event in real time & real space … and another delicious cup of BBC!

(vBBC OfficeXpats hosted Zoom link is in BBC Newsletter. If you wish to attend virtually, contact Dave Kragen  [email protected])

BBC @ OfficeXpats– Madison Ave. N, Bainbridge Island, the Pavilion.
7:30-8:00 – coffee, check-in, login check connection, life 
8:00-8:55 – virtual/non-virtual BBC – an experiment in a Hybrid-BBC Roundtable
8:55-9:00 – announcements & debrief

Sincerely, the BBC management, KaveDragen Ink, and other entrepreneurial sentients from planet BBC.

No BBC This Friday For 4th Of July Holiday

BBC Canceled this Friday 2 July 2021 for the 4th Of July Holiday Weekend. Last year 2020 was an oddly bizarre exception to the rule of “off for the holidays.” So it’s back to our tradition of “No BBC for the 4th Of July Weekend.”

Grand Old 4th 2021! grandold4th.com  “In the interests of health and safety, this is a year where a ‘normal’ 4th is not possible; so we are proud to announce 2021’s Grand Old 4th, Pandemic Edition.” More updates at: bainbridgechamber.com.

4th Of July 2020: bainbridgebusinessconnection.com/bbc-virtual-friday-16-3-july-2020/

Last week’s discussion notes: vBBC_25June2021.

Sincerely, the BBC management, KaveDragen Ink, and other entrepreneurial sentients from planet BBC.
