"Enhancing Performance through Emotional Intelligence"

Thursday, October 3, 2019 

Contact: Chris Stanczak, Sr. Talent Development Specialist, Creighton University at ChrisStanczak@creighton.edu

For years, people taught that a person's intellectual intelligence was the greatest predictor of success. In the past 15 years, however, researchers have found that this isn't necessarily the case -- that in actuality, a person's emotional intelligence quotient (EQ) might be a greater predictor of success than IQ. What is emotional intelligence? When Drs. Mayer, Ph.D., and Salovey, Ph.D., introduced the term "emotional intelligence", they used the term to describe a person's ability to understand personal emotions and the emotions of others and to act appropriately based on this understanding. This session will reveal your EQ and discuss how to use the information to enhance your performance.  

Learning Objectives: 

  • Introduce Emotional Intelligence and the EQ calculation
  • Review the seven categories of EI
  • Understanding Your EI Report and the impact on performance
  • Develop a personal plan to improve EI

FALL 2019

Sponsored by the Nebraska Hospital Association (NHA), Dave Gregory will co-host with Jon Titus, Director of Continuing Education at Bellevue University, a webinar series:

Diagnosing Talent in your Healthcare Organization

Building a strong talent management strategy is a challenge today. U.S. human resources and business managers said they are unable to find enough qualified candidates to fill open positions. In order to build a strong talent management strategy, healthcare leaders must also acquire the right talent, onboard, educate and retain professionals while continuing to meet the goals of the organization. 

In this three-part webinar series, sponsored by NHA Services titled “Diagnosing Talent in your Healthcare Organization”, you will learn six aspects necessary to build a successful talent management strategy and how to utilize data to make the best possible people development decisions.

The first webinar of the series, “Triage Team Performance to Maximize Potential,” delves into the importance of Emotional Intelligence and its value for human capital in talent planning, acquisition and team performance. This webinar was completed on September 10. You may listen to the webinar ZOOM LINK: TriageTeamPerformance

The second webinar of the series, "Understanding Preferred Behavior Styles," reveals how people are likely to behave. This self-awareness and understanding of other people's preferred behavior styles allows healthcare workers to improve patient experiences and engage peers more effectively. Join us on November 7 at 1 pm CST for this unique view into improving healthcare performance. All registrants will receive a FREE IMX DISC profile prior to the webinar. Register HERE and receive your FREE link to the IMX DISC profile. 

The third webinar of the series, "Managing Team Dynamics: Understanding Motivators" was offered on February 5, 2020. This webinar helps participants understand why people deliver more discretionary effort sometimes and less at other times. Identifying people's unique motivational patterns allows healthcare leaders to change their approach to meet the needs of their employees unleashing greater performance. Stay tuned for more information about this webinar and the opportunity to complete the IMX VALUES profile.
