The Most Qualified Person Does Not Always Get Hired!

You may be surprised to learn: The Most Qualified Person Does Not Always Get Hired!

It’s not your technical skills that get you the job. It is frequently those all important “soft” skills like interpersonal communication, initiative, persistence, and flexibility. These and other traits are sometimes referred to as Emotional Intelligence. This week, I am excited to have Deborah Westcott, expert in Emotional Intelligence, as our guest. I heard Deborah speak at a conference a number of months ago. You will find there is an important connection between EQ, the work place, and successful job search.

Deborah works for the Blue Mesa Group, has a Master’s Degree in Clinical Social Work and is a Professional Certified Coach. She has worked as a professor, coach, consultant and psychotherapist for more than 30 years.

We will be discussing:

  • What is EQ and Why is it so Important in the Work Place
  • Can you Learn to be More Emotionally Intelligent?
  • How does EQ relate to a Successful Job Search?
  • Is there Research Backing the Need for Emotional Intelligence?
  • How does EQ Provide Better Success with Job Interviews.
