H​ow's your 21st century workplace auditing EQ​? - Julie Ko​walski- 8:00am - 5:00pm, October 22 2020 - Location: Lacey Community Center

Julie Kowalski.jpgEmotional Intelligence, also known as emotional quotient (EQ) has become one of the hottest buzzwords in corporate America, yet few know exactly what Emotional Intelligence/EQ really is, how it is measured, and how to use emotional intelligence to get ahead and achieve success in Auditing. Also adding to the complexity of the 21st century workplace, is the fact that for the first time in history, there are five generations trying to work together, however often times colliding more than collaborating. When we understand how the key events of each generation impacted the generation, as well as some of the generational preferences, and apply our emotional intelligence knowledge, we can eliminate a lot of the stress, frustration and complaints and create supportive environments in our audit work.

Registration will be opening soon!
