SARASOTA, Fla. — Jim Bos, a co-owner of talent management company MBJ Group, recently completed certification training through Phoenix-based Target Training International (TTI) Success Insights, the world’s leading source for research-based, validated assessment and coaching tools.
The TTI Success Insights Emotional Quotient™ Certified designation is an internationally recognized accreditation that signifies a person’s understanding of the TTI Emotional Quotient evaluation, a sought-after tool around the globe that explores behavior, motivation, values and emotional intelligence.
“We have been using these evaluations and tools for years, but now through the Emotional Quotient, we can look at the way a person responds to emotionally charged situations,” said Bos. “By creating that awareness, this can help increase an individual’s performance and the decision-making process.”
Bos specializes in working with professionals in career transitions or career realignments. He also works with executives and their teams in nonprofit and for-profit organizations to facilitate job searches and placements, perform executive coaching, assist with strategic planning and work with companies on leadership and team development.
“Research shows that successful leaders and superior performers have well-developed emotional intelligence skills, making it possible to work with a wide variety of people and respond effectively to the rapidly changing conditions in the business world,” said Bos. “In fact, a person’s emotional quotient may be a better predictor of successful performance than the intelligence quotient.”
A former senior vice president of marketing for FCCI, Bos’ leadership background includes more than 30 years of experience in senior executive management in banking and insurance. His management and marketing experience includes operational management, sales, executive-level presentations, corporate communication, advertising, media spokesperson and community relations advocate.
Bos holds a bachelor’s degree in economics from Calvin University in Grand Rapids and has attended graduate schools at Western Michigan University and the University of Wisconsin Stevens Point. He is a graduate of Corporate Coach U and was a Teleclass Instructor for CCU for 4 years. Bos has earned several designations, such as Certified Professional Behavioral Analyst (CPBA), Certified Professional Values Analyst (CPVA) and Certified Professional TriMetrix HD Analyst.
