 Selkirk College’s Mir Centre for Peace Lecture Series invites you to explore the foundation for peace on the planet with Vancouver-based Emotional Intelligence Specialist David Cory.

As a specialist in the Emotional Intelligence field for the past 12 years, David Cory will share stories and review humankind’s ability to evaluate, manage and control emotions which are related to forming the foundation for peace in our world.

“Generally speaking, individuals with well developed emotional intelligence skills are better at perceiving, using, understanding and managing emotions,” explains Cory.
“They are more effective communicators, better at relationships, better able to align their goals, values, and actions and are less likely to resort to violence as a way of solving interpersonal problems.”
Cory is the founder of The Emotional Intelligence Training Company Inc. and specializes in applying the concept of emotional intelligence to leadership and team effectiveness with leaders in such corporations as Rogers, Telus, Philips and Allstate Insurance.
He is a guest instructor at several post-secondary institutions, is a past president of the Vancouver chapter of the International Society for Performance Improvement, works with senior government leaders at the Canada School of Public Service in Ottawa, and has been a keynote speaker and delivered training in Africa, the Caribbean, Asia, Europe, the Middle East and all over North America.
He is considered to be an international expert on the integration of emotional intelligence and leadership development.
This Mir Centre for Peace Lecture takes place on Oct. 13 at 7 p.m. at Selkirk College’s Castlegar campus. Tickets are available at Selkirk College bookstores, Otter Books in Nelson, Castlegar & District Public Library and at the door.

David will also be offering a two-day Emotional Intelligence workshop on October 14 and 15 in Castlegar. Visit www.selkirk.ca/events or www.eitrainingcompany.com, or call 250-352-2821 or 250-551-1587 for more information.
