Men Need Emotional Intelligence Too!
Hank Clemons, PhD, CEIC
Both men and women have emotional intelligence, but in significantly different ways. An awareness of this is extremely important for today’s workplace and in relationships in general. People skills have now become more important as a culture of teamwork and partnerships takes precedence over being an independent contributor. Therefore to remain competitive, men need to develop their EI in areas that in the past have been ignored or in some cases purposely dismissed.

NLP – Fundamentals of Rapport
What is NLP?
Neuro – Our neurology (Our experience using our 5 senses.)
Linguistic – Our language (How we communicate to ourselves and others about our experience.)
Programming – How we achieve automatic behavior by installing programs into our unconscious mind (Behaviors like: walking, talking, riding a bike, driving a car, reading, playing a sport, etc.)
What is RAPPORT?
Everyone always tells us, “If you want to be a good communicator, you have to have rapport.” But seldom do we learn what rapport is, how to get it, how to know if you have it, or how to keep it.
In this program you will learn the answers to these (and more) questions and have a chance to practice your rapport-building skills.

Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) – the “Tapping” Solution
Presenter: Art Emrich
Art will present a practical application of a technique that is growing in popularity as its results become more widely known. Based on the ancient system of Chinese energy meridians, it is designed to allow energy to flow more freely throughout the body. In the Chinese system, blocked energy equals disease or discomfort, and free-flowing energy equals health.
The presentation will include recording the initial distress level experience, the set-up statement, the location of the meridian tapping points, the sequence of tapping, and the ending distress level assessment.
Time will be included for everyone to ask questions and do some “tapping” to practice the technique. Handouts will also be available to take home as a reference for future tapping sessions.
