Professional Development – Emotional Intelligence with Jane Loya Ryan

Fort Worth SWE is excited to bring you an intriguing new professional development opportunity on Saturday, April 30th.  Light breakfast fare will be provided, so RSVPs are a must.

Please RSVP to Jody Snow at jsnow0@charter.net by COB Thursday, April 28th.
What is Emotional Intelligence and Why Should I Care?

 

These days our career performance depends on our ability to work with and understand those around us. Maintaining a high level of emotional intelligence (EQ) provides an invaluable skill set to motivate and collaborate effectively with colleagues and clients. Some experts contend that high EQ can be more important than high IQ in predicting career success. So how can you be more EQ-savvy?

 

Join the Fort Worth SWE on April 30th to learn more about Emotional Intelligence from speaker Jane Loya Ryan of Jane Ryan & Associates LLC. She will share her expertise as a management consultant and psychologist to explain how to improve our emotional intelligence to enhance our leadership and career skills.

Senior Send-Off 2016

In keeping with tradition, the Fort Worth Professional SWE section hosted a Senior Sendoff lunch at UTA this Sunday. The weather was gloomy, but we had a good turnout and got a lot of good advice from FW SWE President Jody Snow about dressing for success (and what not to wear) in professional settings. We love sharing our personal experiences (good and bad) with young ladies who are entering the professional work force.
