EQ training


Dr. George Lehman

Dr. George Lehman, emeritus professor of business, will share his expertise in Emotional Intelligence in the workplace with area businesses.

Bluffton to provide Emotional Intelligence trainings

As part of Bluffton University’s Corporate Partner Program, Dr. George Lehman, professor emeritus of business, will begin providing training sessions on emotional intelligence (EQ) in the workplace. Lehman’s first presentation will be for the Lima-Allen County Chamber of Commerce’s Chamber University. The March 18 online training is free and open to the community by registering at Chamber University Online Training.

“Many of us intuitively know that raw intelligence does not guarantee workplace success. In the past two decades, business scholars have been sorting out how emotional intelligence can be a key success factor for leaders,” said Lehman. “At Bluffton, we have been teaching and assessing EQ for some time in our leadership courses for adults. This presentation will introduce the basic concepts of emotional intelligence and offer suggestions regarding the development of this important skill set.”

Similar EQ training sessions will be offered to Bluffton’s Corporate Partner businesses and organizations. Bluffton’s Corporate Partner Program provides benefit-eligible employees and their immediate families a 20 percent tuition discount on Bluffton University’s undergraduate, degree-completion and master’s degree programs. The discount is applied to both online and on-campus degree programs.
