The East Brunswick Regional Chamber of Commerce is building momentum and energizing the business and professional community in a way the old-fashioned "business-card exchange" meeting format couldn't encompass.  The Chamber has gotten its new year on the rails with progressive, informative meetings that focus on the needs and direction of the township's growing number of independent and franchise businesses.  

Last month, the members focused on self-awareness and emotional intelligence on the workplace.  The discussion was led by East Brunswick's Tracy L. Fink, a mindfulness teacher and communications expert, who was recognized as one of the top "intrapreneurs" in New Jersey. "An "intrapreneur," says Fink, "is someone who impacts a company and builds success from within by creating an engaging business model." 

At the meeting, Fink spoke about building emotional intelligence through mindfulness.  "When we practice mindfulness, "she said, " We build self-awareness which is the foundation of emotional intelligence.  Self-awareness, in this context, is having clarity of one's own and others' emotions."

Fink led the group through two mindfulness practice exercises to collect attention and to become more present. "Collecting attention and letting it rest on the breath often brings a result of calmness, clarity, and a natural sense of happiness," she said.
