The morning was opened by JCCV Vice President Atida Lipshatz.  The seminar followed on from previous seminars held on ‘Saying No’ and ‘Information Overload.’

Management Consultant and genius trainer Adam Slonim presented this fourth Emotional Intelligence seminar for the JCCV with participants from  over a dozen community organisations, including Synagogues, Zionist organisations and community service providers.

Adam-Slonim-290Some great ideas, tools and processes were presented to help community organisation staff maintain effective outcomes through understanding emotional intelligence, self-awareness and empathy.

Mr Slonim stated, “A human being is like an iceberg…we don’t know what’s inside someone else’s head.”

“When our values are threatened, we are liable to act in ways we regret.  Trigger events cause physical reactions.  And we can all choose how we respond in those different situations.”

Mr Slonim stated, “It is important to listen for understanding, to pause and think before you act.”

    Bloody brilliant advice and about time someone tames those over the top meshige Victorian Yids known for their excessively aggressive, bad instinct reactions, invaders and wreckers of public order competing with our even more uncontrollable NSW mad, rabid Zionist trouble makers.
