Event Description:
Join us for our February YP Monthly Luncheon featuring Wendy Knight on February 16h from  11:45 am - 1 pm at the Holiday Inn Dubuque. Wendy will present, Making the World a Better Place to Work, One Leader at a Time. Building emotional intelligence with GRACE.

Emotional Intelligence is the capacity to recognize and effectively manage emotions in ourselves and with others. Emotional intelligence increases our ability to make effective decisions, build relationships, deal with stress, and cope with change.

Research has proven that our emotional intelligence (EQ) is more reliable in predicting success than our intelligence quotient (IQ). In our time together, we will explore the topic of EQ and how to develop our own EQ; thereby increasing your success with your career and relationships both inside and outside of work, simply by applying GRACE.

Wendy Knight of Dubuque is a VP of Institutional Effectiveness and Advancement at Northeast Iowa Community College and Founder and Collaborative Strategist for Focus Forward.

After graduating from NICC in 1986 with a degree in Respiratory Care, Knight earned a B.A. in Health Arts, an M.S. in Health Administration and MBA from the University of St. Francis in Joliet, Ill. During her career at NICC and in education, Knight worked in respiratory care and returned to the College to serve in a faculty and administrative capacity from 1992-2001 as director of clinical education and program director of the NICC Respiratory Care program.

From 2001-2003, she served as director of the Leadership Education And Development (LEAD) Program at Clarke University, and was a vice president of administration at East Dubuque Savings Bank from 2003-2004. Knight returned to NICC in 2004 to serve as the executive director of business and community solutions. She was named to her current position as vice president at NICC in 2016.
