Join us for an evening exploring Nunchi, the guiding principle of Korean life, considered essential for survival, happiness and success with Korean culture expert Euny Hong.
Also known as the ‘Korean superpower’, Nunchi is the art of reading a room, understanding what people are thinking, feeling and needing in that moment, and using that information to get what you want from a situation. Roughly translating as ‘self-awareness’ or ‘emotional intelligence’, anyone can be more successful in work, love, and life by cultivating their Nunchi.
The power of Nunchi is also backed by science, psychological studies in Korea found that people with higher levels of Nunchi also score higher in self-esteem and satisfaction with life.
What can Nunchi do for you:
· Forge deeper and more meaningful connections with colleagues
· Help your social life flourish
· Gauging when to speak up during tense meetings and make more meaningful contributions
· Resolve conflicts more effectively
· Help negotiate pay rises and promotions more effectively
Euny Hong is a Korean-American cultural expert, journalist and author of three books. Euny is a self-described ‘Nunchi ninja’, undergoing a crash course in Nunchi after moving from Chicago to Korea at the age of twelve without speaking a word of Korean.
