Blue Bell, Pa.— Montgomery County Community College’s (MCCC) Center for Workforce Development is partnering with the Hay Group to offer an Emotional and Social Competence Inventory (ESCI) Workshop on Thursday, June 25. The workshop runs from 8:30 a.m.-1 p.m. at MCCC’s Central Campus, 340 DeKalb Pike, Blue Bell. The cost is $495, which includes continental breakfast and light lunch networking opportunities. Space is limited to 25 participants. For information and to register, visit mc3.edu/ei.
According to Hay Group research, emotional intelligence is twice as important as cognitive abilities in predicting outstanding employee performance. Once an individual is made aware of his or her abilities and limitations, one can increase his or her emotional and social intelligence by following a step-by-step process and personal development plan, which participants in the ESCI workshop will receive.
Once registered, participants will receive a link to complete an online 360 assessment, which must be done by June 14. At the workshop, participants will receive personalized, confidential assessment reports.
The ESCI Workshop is designed to equip leaders and managers with the skills necessary for them to become effective, emotionally intelligent leaders. Participants will gain new understanding of themselves, as well as increased confidence in their ability to work with others. Content is based on the work of psychologist Daniel Goleman, a pioneer in the study of emotional intelligence, and combines 60 years of Hay Group research that links leadership behaviors with business results.
William Tredwell, in partnership with psychologist and author Daniel Goleman, has helped develop Hay Group’s Emotional Intelligence assessment tools, and will lead the June 25 workshop at MCCC. Tredwell has also trained more than 1,000 practitioners to use the tools in their organizations. He has worked with clients in a wide variety of industries in all parts of the world.
