Virtual Lunchtime Learning Sessions



  • The Power of Emotional Intelligence – March 23rd, noon to 1pm
    Presenter: Anna Irwin
    What is the formula for success at your job? As a spouse? A parent? As part of your community? Emotional intelligence (EI) is the unique repertoire of emotional skills that we use to navigate the everyday challenges of life. Research has demonstrated that our EI or (EQ) is often a more accurate predictor of success than our IQ. No matter how intellectually intelligent we are, our success is still governed by how well we communicate our ideas and interact with our peers. This course will give you the foundational knowledge to help you understand how to leverage current skill strengths and recognize opportunities for development.

    Grit: The Power of Passion and Perseverance – April 14th, noon to 1pm
    Presenter: Bonnie Cain-Wood
    Based on the book of the same name, this session will make the case to anyone striving to succeed that the secret to outstanding achievement is not talent, but a special blend of passion and persistence called “grit.” We will discuss what goes through our brains when we fail, and how that—not talent or luck—makes all the difference. Come learn how to strengthen your own level of grit, and how this can impact every facet of your life!

    Fear of Failure: Why Perfectionism Stops Us In Our Tracks – April 27th, noon to 1pm
    Presenter: Amie Haar
    "No!" "Stop!" "Don't even begin!" "If you never start, then you cannot fail!" The words perfectionism speaks into our minds are harsh ones. We are fooled into thinking that if we never begin, or procrastinate, or focus solely on the results, we cannot stumble. So, what do we do about these messages and ideas we have trained ourselves to hear when we inevitably falter? In this session, you will learn how to identify perfectionist tendencies (we all have them!), and what to do when the fear of failing begins to creep in.
