Emotional Intelligence

Intellectual intelligence

And technical expertise comprise entry-level skills for leaders. However, leaders who lack emotional intelligence often struggle to create the relationships necessary for leadership and team success. Research suggests that leaders with emotional intelligence skills attain a higher achievement rate than leaders who fail to develop these skills. The development of emotional intelligence provides the leader with the ability to understand, manage, and constructively use their emotions towards positive ends. 

Emotional intelligence improves communication skills, creates greater understanding through increased empathy, and enables teams to overcome challenges and engage in productive conflict resolution. Enhancing your emotional intelligence capabilities enhances team performance, job satisfaction, motivation, change implementation, and leadership effectiveness. Your participation in the program allows you to develop the required skills in the following six competencies:

“Know Thyself” Over 2000 years ago, Socrates expressed the importance of self-awareness, stating the unexamined life is not worth living. In modern organizations, the ability to create self-understanding underpins the development of emotional intelligence and leadership effectiveness. Self-awareness refers to the ability to see yourself clearly, recognize and understand your emotions, goals, values, strengths and weaknesses, and their impact on others. Utilizing self and 360-degree assessment tools, you will participate in interactive exercises that enable you to understand better your strengths, weaknesses, values, and goals and how these characteristics impact your emotional reactions and relationships with others.
Increased self-understanding provides you the opportunity to respond effectively to challenging situations. The ability to identify, control, and redirect disruptive emotions, act consistently with your values towards valuable ends, self-reflect, think, and suspend judgment before acting, highlight essential skills you will develop during the self-regulation module. The engaging development practices enable the participants to reflect upon past experiences, learn from others, and develop an action plan to improve future interactions.

Leaders naturally attempt to generate understanding among their teams by talking first to help them “see” the issue from the leader’s perspective. Additionally, the leader’s initial knowledge of a situation is filled with assumptions that may lead the leader astray. The ability to view conditions from another’s point of view creates the bridge connecting self-understanding with understanding others. The empathy module provides you with the skills to first seek to understand, then be understood. The immersive projects engage the participants and equip them to ask the questions necessary to create positive relationships and resolve contentious issues

Self-awareness and regulation form essential skills within the individual. Empathy bridges the gap between self and others. Leaders need the skills to interpret the emotional state of others correctly to enable the leader to respond effectively. Participants in this module will enhance their ability to read and interpret verbal and non-verbal cues. Additionally, you will participate in interactive exercises to develop the listening skill required to understand the perspectives of others, create the conditions for open and honest discussions, and create the relationships that form the foundation of the leadership process.

Interactions among coworkers do not occur in a vacuum. The cultural and political environment in your organization influences how people interact and communicate. Understanding the cultural forces at work in the organization enable leader’s to formulate appropriate and effective responses. The interactive exercises help the participants form increased clarity and appreciation of the unique social conditions that impact the way people within your organization react to situations and each other.

Emotionally intelligent responses become easy during the good times when feedback is positive. In reality, conditions are often challenging, and conversations are fraught with potential conflict. The difficult conversations module provides participants with the tools and techniques required to develop a plan of action. The interactive exercises create the group to learn from one another, create a roadmap for success, and practice the skills to build confidence in any situation.
