Upcoming session to discuss emotional intelligence strategies to help people jump-start their lives and careers


A session to help people understand how to unlock their emotional intelligence will be held from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Sept. 25 at the Ohio University-Chillicothe Technology and Business Development Center. The focus of the session is “Do you have what it takes to jump-start your brain for business and personal success?”

Marcia Harris will help participants understand how to develop a strategy to get off of the emotional roller coaster and jump-start their lives and careers as well as make an impact on others.

Cost is $149, with an early-bird special of $100 for those who register by Sept. 10. Registration deadline is Sept. 18.

The session is sponsored by the OU-C Office of Continuing Education and Workshop Development. Registration for the non-credit course is available online at www.ohio.edu/chillicothe/community/index.cfm or by contacting Janet Fink at (740) 774-7226 or finkj@ohio.edu.

According to Harris, “Your success in life depends largely on your emotional intelligence. How you respond to life’s situations determines how far you will go in life as you use your positive emotions to diffuse, understand and create working relationships that lead to win-win situations for all involved.”

“This upcoming session focuses on a whole brain strategy, leading to increased energy as you learn to understand your greatest resource, the brain.”

Harris, the keynote speaker, holds a bachelor’s degree in psychology and a master’s degree in community counseling. She is a member of the American Counseling Association and the National Speakers Association. Harris is experienced as a facilitator of “YOUnique whole-brain life skills seminars.” She also has more than 20 years of experience as a youth program director and is the executive director of Time Out for Me, Inc. youth personal development.
