2nd Annual Administrative Professionals Conference: Unlock the Leadership Potential in Yourself and Others

Tuesday, April 11, 2017

Diana Bilimoria, PhD
KeyBank Professor, Chair and Professor of Organizational Behavior
Weatherhead School of Management

Outstanding administrative professionals distinguish themselves by their ability to understand and manage themselves and to understand and work with others. It is a given that technical and functional expertise is the foundation for effective performance. But Emotional Intelligence (EI) competencies overwhelmingly distinguish outstanding performers from average performers. Attendees learned the concept of EI, its component competencies and how to use EI to stimulate outstanding performance in self and others.

Emotional Intelligence Competencies for the Administrative Professional 

Bob Hall
Director of Professional Development and Learning
Human Resources

Emotions drive our physiology.  They can make us feel everything from happy to excited, to exhausted and depleted.  You can manage your emotions or be managed by them. You get to pick.  Being resilient means that whatever emotions you experience you can, not just bounce back, but adapt! In this interactive session Bob Hall will explore exactly what it means to be resilient and what you should start doing to create more of it.  Being in this highly resilient state is associated with higher levels of creativity and innovation while being more focused and the ability to think clearly under pressure.  Learn what many elite athletes know so you can harness your body’s ability to create this naturally occurring state where you are at your best. Attendees looked at the science behind resiliency and practice some simple techniques to help you get and stay “in the zone”.

Box is a storage service that will enable Case Western Reserve University to store, access and share files securely. Because Box is hosted in the cloud, it can be reached anywhere, anytime and from different kinds of devices. It is not a file server under a desk or a flash drive that you carry; in fact, it can replace that server or flash drive. It also can be used to store restricted, confidential data, such as financial information. Box is the only approved platform for storing restricted data in the cloud at Case Western Reserve.
