CURRENT

Programming is targeted at ages 21-40 but everyone is welcome to attend. UW-Green Bay has a Corporate Membership and encourages your participation.

UW-Green Bay employees and students pay the ‘member’ price (instead of the ‘nonmember’ price) when attending Current events. If you try to register online for a Current event, and the ‘nonmember’ price displays (instead of the ‘member’ price), please complete the online enrollment process at the following link. Even though UW-Green Bay is a corporate member, Current’s database detects price based on individual membership, so this step may be necessary for the ‘member’ pricing to display.

To apply for membership, please copy and paste the URL below into your browser:

CURRENT: Emotional Intelligence Lunch n’Learn

Emotional Intelligence Lunch n’ Learn presented by Steven F. Baue

This event is coordinated and hosted by Current, the Greater Green Bay Chamber’s young professionals group targeting individuals age 21-40.

Emotional Intelligence

Why do smart people fail?  Why do technically brilliant individuals often have trouble managing others or struggle when working in a team?  It’s not because they lack intelligence or technical skills.  What they lack is a critical level of Emotional Intelligence (EQ): the ability to express and manage your emotions while being able to understand and respond to the emotions of others.  Research suggests that EQ is one of the strongest predictors of performance, accounting for almost 60% of success in all types of jobs.  In this session participants will not only learn how a high EQ provides a strong foundation for successful relationships in both our professional and personal lives, but steps they can take to improve their EQ.
