EQ For Career Change
EQ for Career Change
4th Wednesday from 1-2pm Eastern
Starting Wednesday, September 26
Are you at a crossroads as you consider your next career move? Are you looking to connect insights about yourself with the work you’re here to do in the world? Is this your year to land the job you’ve been dreaming about? Are you looking to land, create, pivot into, or move up into your dream job – or launch your own business?
EQ for Career Change (EQ4CC) is a webinar series for those seeking new jobs and related opportunities. Each month, we’ll focus on a different aspect of the job search process. We’ll also complete experiential exercises that are designed to help you gain insights into your job search while also growing your emotional intelligence. The program is tailored to assist job seekers at all levels and provide a supportive environment.
EQ4CC draws on the emotional intelligence tools and resources provided by Six Seconds.
In addition to learning new tools and strategies, EQ4CC participants are encouraged to support one another via networking, share information on their job search with others, etc. This process can sometimes be a lonely and isolating one so this will be a good way to build comradery and support for one another.
Each webinar registration includes a personalized Six Second report and/or a participant workbook, plus the session recording.
