Women in Business luncheon to address EQ

Years ago it was thought that a person’s IQ was the most important attribute in the workplace. Today, behavioral health experts say that Emotional intelligence (EQ) plays a major role, too, and that the smartest people are not necessarily the most successful ones.

Women in business will soon have the opportunity to learn more about this interesting phenomenon and which one may carry more weight – IQ or EQ – in today’s business environment.

“Balancing IQ and EQ in the Workplace” will be presented at the Aiken Chamber’s Women in Business fall luncheon on Tuesday, November 18. The event will be held at Newberry Hall in downtown Aiken from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.

The program will feature a panel of three who will provide insight on the importance of emotional intelligence, as well as examples of positive and negative EQ in the workplace. The panel includes Dana Rideout, a licensed professional counselor, Mary Woods, a licensed independent social worker, and Janice Jennings, executive director of Juilliard in Aiken. Program moderator will be Judy Boyle Chun, People Solutions, J.B. Chun and Associates.
