Professional Assistant's Day Celebrated at Genesee Community College With Luncheon and Seminar

The BEST Center of Genesee Community College proudly presents the Professional Assistant's Day Seminar and Celebration Luncheon, Tuesday, April 26, 2005 from 9:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. The half-day program includes a dynamic presentation about Emotional Intelligence given by Bobbi Marie Bartholomew, a researcher for the Center for Development of Human Services (CDHS), a facilitator in Creative Problem Solving, and the Gifted Programming Specialist for the Williamsville Central School District.

Research confirms that those with the highest IQ's are not necessarily the most successful. Emotion greatly effects behavior and when used with passion and vision, it is an excellent indicator of future success. Emotional Intelligence (EQ) is the new kind of "smart" and it can be increased when emotions are not considered just an intrusion or distraction. By skillfully harnessing emotion and passion, one can increase his or her EQ and achieve well-being in all facets of life, including home and work environments.

"We had such a successful event at last year's Professional Assistant's Day that we have expanded the program and included a great presentation that all office workers-both assistants and managers-will appreciate," Ray Chaya, Director of The BEST Center said. "With over 40 people registered to attend this year's event, we are excited about not only recognizing the important services performed each day by professional assistants but also providing a rich, thought-provoking seminar."
