MANAGEMENT BRIEFING: Personal Intelligence (EQ + IQ) “A Magician, a Monk and a Miracle”

When; 03-May-2017 – 0730 Breakfast/Networking, session runs from 08h30 until 11h00

Where; STANLIB, Melrose Arch, Johannesburg [see map]

What; Whether human beings speak in baffling acronyms or use impenetrable jargon, the point is they remain human beings with fairly predictable responses. Like it or not, IT and Business depend upon one another, and by developing a healthy level of Personal Intelligence (EQ + IQ) any battle-of- wills can be turned into a ‘functional relationship’ – a relationship at work, that works. Join Steph Vermeulen – South Africa’s EQ Guru – who will argue that the primary reason to develop Personal-Intel, is to free ourselves from the debilitating effect of emotions that interfere with the application of rational intelligence.

Attendance is free. Seats are limited! Book here

Early in 2016 we ran a webinar on Gary’s “Top 10 IT Management Mistakes”. The response was so good that we turned it into an annual Global Survey.  The feedback we received confirmed that these management blunders are nearly all to do with management attitude and mindset and nothing to do with technical challenges!!
Over 40 countries participated and we’ve presented the results in this report.
