The Power of Minds of Work.
Washington, D.C. (PRWEB) August 31, 2006
The Human Capital Institute (HCI), a global professional association and educator in talent management strategies, and the Executive Development Center, a division of the Leavey School of Business at Santa Clara University (SCU), announced today that Karl Albrecht, management consultant and bestselling author, will speak at a networking breakfast at the Benson Memorial Center on SCU's campus on Tuesday, October 3, from 8:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. PT. The event is part of an ongoing series of HCI academic networking events for the Silicon Valley business and professional community.
Albrecht's presentation, "Social Intelligence," will explore concepts detailed in his book of the same name. Each attendee will receive a complimentary copy of the groundbreaking book.
In "Social Intelligence," Albrecht shows how the dimension of social intelligence - perceptiveness, situation savvy, and interaction skill - is key to success at work and in life.
Albrecht defines social intelligence (SI) as the ability to get along well with others while winning their cooperation. SI is a combination of sensitivity to the needs and interests of others, sometimes called "social radar," an attitude of generosity and consideration, and a set of practical skills for interacting successfully with people in any setting. Albrecht provides a highly accessibly and comprehensive model for describing, assessing, and developing social intelligence at a personal and professional level.
In this program, Albrecht will explore the five dimensions of social intelligence - situational awareness, presence, authenticity, clarity, and empathy (S.P.A.C.E.) - and show how this set of practical skills is critical for interacting successfully in any setting.
Karl Albrecht is a management consultant, executive advisor, futurist, speaker, and prolific author. As chairman of Karl Albrecht International, he is known worldwide as a business thought leader. He is the author of such bestselling books as "Service America!," "Brain Power," "The Northbound Train," and "The Power of Minds of Work."
His new book, "Social Intelligence," is meeting with praise from Stephen Covey, Warren Bennis, and others.
"The SCU networking event offers a unique opportunity to hear one of the world's foremost thinkers speak on a topic of great significance," said Allan Schweyer, HCI's President & Executive Director. "Social intelligence has implications for business leaders everywhere."
