Flushing Chamber's John Choe Selected for 2019 Queens Power 100
Taehoon Kim, president of the Greater Flushing Chamber of Commerce stated the following in response to City & State’s selection of executive director John Choe on the “2019 Queens Power 100,” a list of the most influential people in New York City’s biggest borough. The list is available online at City & State.
“We congratulate our executive director John Choe for his dedication and commitment to improving our community … We welcome this recognition because it reflects all the hard work and impact made by our staff, led by John Choe, and our members and board in supporting and promoting the most diverse and dynamic community in America.”
There was a time when intelligence quotient (IQ) ruled all. From educational placements to job interviews, IQ was deemed to be the No. 1 predictor of future successes. However, psychologist Daniel Goleman (featured on Schooley Mitchell) has spent over two decades bringing the concept – and importance – of emotional intelligence to the masses, and for good reason. Research shows nearly two-thirds of careers go off the rails because of issues related to emotional intelligence, including inability to build trust or resolve interpersonal issues, or demonstrating poor leadership during times of conflict.
In one of Goleman’s studies, he took a look at software engineers, asking their peers to undertake a full 360-degree evaluation of their success. When the results were analyzed, Goleman discovered the peers had zero correlation between IQ and success: it was all about emotional intelligence. To learn more, watch Goleman’s Big Think video, Emotional Intelligence at Work: Why IQ Isn’t Everything.

Our Chamber represents the fastest growing and most dynamic business community in the United States. Attracting firms from around the world – two dozen languages are spoken here – we are already an international trade hub and the fourth largest commercial district in New York. As the center of small business activity in the metropolitan region – 90% of our 6,000 firms have less than 10 workers – we are also the new face of American entrepreneurship.
With your support, we have accomplished much this year – launching Flushing’s first district marketing campaign, expanding our community night market at Flushing Meetinghouse and the Greenmarket at Maple Playground, advocating for better transit and infrastructure investment, providing free marketing workshops to help local entrepreneurs. Join us as we celebrate these accomplishments and more!

Cordially Invites You to Our
Third Anniversary Celebration
Exhibition Presented by the Queens Historical Society
Queens has been a major center of thoroughbred horse racing since 1667 when King Charles II of England established the first race course in his North American Possessions.
This exhibition details the history of this amazing sport in Queens from those early days, 350 years ago to the present, and its concomitant cultural, social and economic dimensions and impact. It relates stories of the sport’s legends-horses, jockeys, trainers, and iconic races.
