Next NSENG Meeting is Mon Jan 6th
Features a presentation on "How to use  Emotional Intelligence  to perform better throughout your job search" plus networking
6:15-8:30pm at the Glenview Library (1930 Glenview Rd)
Emotional Intelligence is a different way of being smart and it's a key to high performance on the job and when looking for your next job. Research shows that individuals who demonstrate high Emotional Intelligence are far more effective looking for jobs and ultimately more productive employees when working on the job. It's a key way to separate yourself from the pack of other candidates throughout your job search.

During this meeting,  JANICE AULL, one of Chicago's standout motivational speakers and facilitators, will share her expertise in applying Emotional Intelligence to job seekers. Here are a few of the topics that she will cover:
  • Conducting your own self-assessment and the confidence with knowing and accepting your strengths and limitations.
  • Improving your communication to influence and persuade the decisions-makers why you are the right candidate for the role. 
  • Maintaining an inner dialogue to demonstrate self-control and adaptability during a job interview.
  • Demonstrating readiness to act and seize opportunities during interviews.
  • Being attuned to the people you are trying to influence and picking up on their cues so you are more credible.

Here a bit of background about  Janice Aull
Janice is the founder of Aull About U LLC, a firm that focuses on improving individual performance through Emotional intelligence. With over 30 years of experience in a corporate environment, Janice has coached hundreds of executives and their teams through learning and development strategies.
