Feedback:

“Wednesday’s session on school culture  with Joel Pedersen was outstanding :). He had a message that I wish my whole staff was able to hear”!

“I want to let you know I really appreciated and learned information from Joel’s presentation. His passion for positive energy and support of the students emulated throughout his presentation. It was great to see the passion, excitement and energy.”
“I attended the session with Joel Pedersen and Heather Buckley from the Cardinal School District and thought it was the best one.  I’m glad they were invited to speak.  Joel’s message about culture was great and his practical ideas can be implemented immediately. Thanks for including them in the program!  They were the best.”

Feedback:

I believe everyone, staff and student alike were impressed with your keynote address, several commented “one of the best graduation addresses they’ve heard”. Your energy and ice-breaker had everyone’s attention from the very beginning. Joel, I felt your message “connected” with our students and was “right on target” for our Job Corps graduates.

Emotional Intelligence Is the Other Kind of Smart.

When emotional intelligence first appeared to the masses in 1995, it served as the missing link in a peculiar finding: people with average IQs outperform those with the highest IQs 70% of the time. This anomaly threw a massive wrench into what many people had always assumed was the sole source of success—IQ. Decades of research now point to emotional intelligence (EQ) as the critical factor that sets star performers apart from the rest of the pack.

Emotional intelligence is the “something” in each of us that is a bit intangible. It affects how we manage behavior, navigate social complexities, and make personal decisions that achieve positive results. Emotional intelligence is made up of four core skills that pair up under two primary competencies: personal competence and social competence.
