    Please join us for our Mastering Negotiation session with Natalie Reynolds where we'll learn tips and tricks to 'making our ask' and creating win-win solutions.

    What does it mean to be “motivated”? Is it possible to motivate yourself and others? How? What role do emotions play in fueling commitment and generating energy?

    Join the first “EQ Café” of 2019 to explore answers to these important questions about how we create the energy to move forward proactively. EQ Cafés are insightful, fun sessions for people curious about emotional intelligence to connect and learn together.

    In this Café we will discover:

    • What “motivation” is and isn’t 

    • Research-based strategies to increase motivation

    • How emotions, and emotional intelligence, helps us fuel our own and others’ energy

    Who: Anyone interested in learning about and practicing emotional intelligence – the learnable, measurable, scientifically validated skillset we all need to thrive.

    What: Free interactive workshop. Co-Sponsored by the Club

    Light refreshments will be served. Registrants are welcome to bring their lunch.

    How: Save your space by Registering

    Questions: Please email Six Seconds' Network Leader and Certified Coach, Janet Miller Evans,

    The Art of the Interview:Skills & drills to prepare for and un-bias the interviewing process

    As an interviewer, you hold all the cards. But how do you make sure that you’re interviewing in a fair and unbiased way to discover great talent that is truly additive to your team?

    As an interviewee, you update your resume and think about what questions you might get asked, but how should you best prepare? And have you ever actually practiced interviewing?

    Join us for a combo event in which we focus on both sides of the interview table, and teach skills and run drills for success-no matter your role.

    Come prepared with a one-minute answer to the questions

    • “Tell me about yourself”

    • “What are some of your strengths or areas of weakness?

    At registration, you’ll let us know if you’d prefer to be an Interviewer or an Interviewee

    Past leaders acquired trust based on formal positions, but today’s leaders must instead rely on their own authentic power to earn the trust of their employees, peers, and community.

    Many of us have two sides to our personality: a ‘work' side and a ‘home' side. This is especially true in leadership, where managers often feel pressure to fit their personality to match their role. But if individuals can remain authentic in their leadership approach, they can bring their whole self to work while still being effective, productive, and inspiring leaders.

    Being an authentic leader is not just about being yourself; it’s about growing into your best self. Authentic leadership is an ever-evolving process of growth that involves trusting relationships and embracing a process of emotional, behavioral, and social enrichment.

    In this session, we will explore how the Authentic Leadership Theory can help you become an inspiring leader.

    Luca Rosetti, Chairman & CEO, Beaconforce

    I create work environments where people can thrive and become the best version of themselves.

    HR has been struggling with the same problems for decades. Disengagement, lack of productivity, and stress are causing companies to not only loose talent but also increase depression and burnout around the world. It's our responsibility as business people to have an impact on our people's lives and create work environments that help people reach their full potential. Technology and data can help us achieve this if we use it properly.
