Participant Testimonial:
"Lynn's personal branding workshop was great. I really enjoyed it and learned several new ways of distilling my experience. I was able to put some of it into practice the next day during a phone interview - I had a case story at the ready. I also enjoyed "Calling Cards" and have shared the exercise with two friends. I always find Lynn's input and advice to be so helpful."

Emotional Intelligence; What It Is, Why It Is So Essential, And How We Can Increase It
"Practice naming the emotion you are feeling. You can practice recognizing the emotion you are feeling by naming it. If you are early on in your EQ journey, it can be helpful to print out a list of emotions that you can reference. When you take a moment to reflect on how you are feeling, you can look at the list. It’s essentially a checklist that helps you understand the range of emotions, and then to narrow it down to the one or two that might be going on for you right now. I use this myself if I’m having a hard time pinpointing what I’m feeling. I go through the list and check with myself what my emotion feels like and what word best describes it."

  • Learn about the ability of your brain to change based on stimulation
  • Understand how you can assess situations and adapt your behavior for greater success during interviews

  • Go through an exercise that will physically change your brain to be faster and more focused
  • Learn how to apply the exercises before interviews and networking events
