Take a break and catch your breath from year-end and join us for our February meeting and learn about Emotional Intelligence - A Scientifically Proven Method for Developing the Skills of Success.  The National American Payroll Association has shared with us the training that they provide their employees so we can all grown and learn together.

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, and it is an essential element in the business world, especially in high-stress environments. 

The purpose of this session is to provide you with the knowledge and tools to develop your emotional intelligence.  You'll learn how to avoid self-sabotaging outcomes by altering how you perceive and respond to emotionally charged situations.  In addition, 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.
