PURPOSE

Emotional Intelligence (EI) is the key to successful leadership. Research conducted over the past 25 years show that EI contributes to both professional and personal success. In the workplace, high emotional intelligence is tied to more effective leadership, high work performance, and greater satisfaction. In this workshop, you will learn specific strategies and tips for developing your emotional intelligence in the two main categories: personal and relational competence. Within those domains, we will focus on specific skills used by effective leaders to positively affect the success of themselves and their teams.

In this interactive workshop, participants will learn the impacts of emotional intelligence for both individuals and teams, and practice skills to boost their personal and relational competence. Participants will build upon their EI strengths as well as develop strategies for managing stress, and, learn what effective do to maximize the potential of those they lead. Participants will draw on their own experiences so examples are relevant, and leave with a plan for focused practice and self-development.
