January 9, 2015 Monthly Meeting
Title: A Decade of E.I.: Applied Emotional Intelligence@Work
Presenters: Becky Tise and Bruce Davidson
JCA Global is a U.K. based consultancy that specializes in Applied Emotional Intelligence at @ Work and brings a new and fresh perspective, strongly supported by the latest findings in neuroscience. This approach to E.I. adds the key element of “attitude” and explains how attitudes influence feelings, which fuels thinking and drives behavior. By changing attitudes, therefore, it is possible to create lasting change in behaviors, thoughts and feelings. This highly interactive session will explore a decade of research of E.I. by industry sector, job role, age, gender and global regions and countries. Additionally, the session will focus on how these findings and the addition of the attitudinal component of emotional intelligence can enhance professional coaching engagements.
General Session Learning Outcomes:
• Understanding of how adding the attitudinal component of E.I. to a coaching practice can fast track the path to more sustainable change
• Introduce a new and additional element of Emotional Intelligence to expand the definition beyond the 4-box model that will be already familiar to many.
• Thought-provoking understanding of the variations in E.I. by industry age, country, job role, etc.

Welcome to December!
As we approach the last month of 2014 I want to thank the 2014 Board for their dedication and service.
First, a note of appreciation to those leaving the board. Tom Donaldson led our efforts to help new members get off to a good start with the “Connector” program. Jan Norton brought her professional financial skills to the Treasurer role and leaves the Chapter in great financial shape. Debjani Biswas led the Prism team to create an event that energized and connected participants. And, Jim Cooper served this chapter in many roles: President, Prism Chair, Treasurer, Secretary, and most importantly, “wise advisor.” Thank you all; we look forward to your continued chapter involvement.
The Chapter will benefit from the experience and commitment of our continuing Board members. Neil Phillips will lead the board as President, bringing a breadth of Chapter board experience. He will be well supported by Randy Fernandez (President-Elect), Kathleen Klaviter, Valerie Pelan, and Marcia Zidle. Thank you for your past and continuing efforts.
The entire board is pleased to welcome our incoming board members: Erika Horton, Lisa Krishnan, Catherine Oleksiw, Jude Olson, and Laurel Rolls. They bring impressive credentials and a diversity of professional experience.
On a personal note, when I first joined the board I wasn’t sure what to expect. What I found was a wealth of chapter friendships and a deeper connection and commitment to the coaching profession. I look forward to continued involvement in 2015.
I hope to see you at our Holiday Party on December 12. Best wishes for a joyous holiday season.
