February 2012 Meeting
Emotional Intelligence for Decision Making & Designing eLearning Storyboards
We had an amazing meeting on February 21, with over 83 people attending our presentations, networking with peers, and enjoying refreshments.
During the Tech Talk, Lauren Prisco, Executive Vice President of Custom Training Solutions, Navis, shared best practices in “Designing eLearning Storyboards.” In addition to presenting examples of storyboard formats, Prisco highlighted several practical tips for storyboarding and working with developers. For example, she recommended providing sufficient details in your story boards to reduce the amount of back and forth with developers.
The keynote speaker, Lou Russell, President and CEO, Russell Martin & Associates, kept the audience entertained with her engaging and humor-filled presentation “Emotional Intelligence for Decision Making.” Attendees examined their own emotional triggers, learned how these triggers can lead to brain shut down, and discussed how to mitigate reactions to these triggers. Russell related Emotional Intelligence to Multiple Intelligences theory and the popular DISC quadrant behavioral model. She illustrated how these theories can be used successfully to help people learn to work together more effectively.
