NAAAHR Atlanta Chapter Meeting
Wednesday, March 12, 2014 from 5:30 PM to 8:30 PM (PDT)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
True career success involves more than working hard and demonstrating competence in ones area of expertise. Real success requires strong Emotional Intelligence (EQ), a construct that extends beyond functional knowledge, performance, and intellect. EQ helps us navigate the social complexities of the workplace, lead and motivate others more effectively, and excel in our careers.
How prepared are you for this paradigm shift? What steps can you take to demonstrate effective Emotional Intelligence? How can you learn more about your personal EQ and take steps to develop it?
Join Dr. Kym Harris for a thought-provoking discussion on five steps you can take to strengthen your emotional intelligence. You will gain insight into how to:
� Articulate and reveal who you are and how you lead
� Shift your priorities and engage key stakeholders
� Provide perspective through your best kept stories
� Engage thought partners and promote your value
� Learn from the perceptions of others
� Lead with the best version of yourself
Members - No Charge
Guests - $25 (cash or check please)

When & Where
National Association of African Americans in Human Resources, Atlanta Chapter
As African American professionals, we have a unique history as it relates to the Human Resources profession. As the workforce in America began to integrate in the mid 1960's, management opportunities were scarce for African American professionals. The field of Human Resources management, then commonly known as "personnel", was seen primarily as an administrative adjunct role within companies. The presences of African Americans in the field of personnel began to grow as the Civil Rights Movement began to create momentum for equality in the public and private sectors of America. As companies began to face new challenges in regards to employment law, employee retention, compensation review and benefit costs; the role of the once personnel professional began to transition into a true management role. Now, the Human Resources professional is more often seen as a strategic business partner who manages company's most valued commodity - human capital. In the future, African American human resources professionals will continue to help companies shape their workforce and help manage them to meet the diverse business needs of the workplace.
