Leading with Emotional Intelligence

Leading with Emotional intelligence

“I’m wondering how fantastic workplaces would be if these courses were compulsory for everybody!”

Where and when: Steiner Academy Exeter – 14 August 2018, 9-5pm

Do you want to:

– understand what Emotional Intelligence is and how it relates to leadership success?
– be able to manage and lead your teams more effectively?
– improve your ability to inspire great performance in yourself and others?
– learn about your own Emotional Intelligence and how to develop it?

Emotional intelligence plays a major role in our personalities and our relationships with colleagues and our teams. Happy, successful people usually have high Emotional Intelligence and in turn this has a big impact on how we perform as leaders, and help our teams succeed.

“90% of top performers are high in EI.”*

“Managers that are trained in EI deliver twice the profit of those that are not.”*

“Executives with high levels of EI are 32% more effective at building and maintaining relationships.”*

“Employees are twice as likely to report feeling physically and emotionally healthy in a positive leadership climate.”*

“Employees are four times as likely to be engaged working in an emotionally intelligent leadership climate.”

“67% of leadership competencies essential to effective leadership performance are EI related.”

The evidence is compelling. EI makes a significant difference to a leader’s potential and the culture of your organisation.

Good news: it can be learned.

So what impact are you having on your teams? How emotionally intelligent are you? You’ll find out as part of our Leading with Emotional Intelligence day-long workshop.

Before the workshop, we’ll create and explore your personal executive report in a one-to-one session. You’ll have plenty of time to digest this before the workshop.

After the workshop you’ll leave us with a clear plan of how you’re going to use and develop your new skills. 

Here’s what the course includes:

1.  Exercises and discussions
 – What is Emotional Intelligence and how does it impact our lives?
– The importance of Emotional Intelligence
– How Emotional Intelligence predicts leadership success and derailment
– The relation of Emotional Intelligence to stress and burnout
– Exploration of key elements of Emotional Intelligence
– Tips for Inspirational leadership, resilience and performance

2.  Your personal EI report. You will receive a one-hour one-to-one exploration session in advance of the workshop. The Executive report is the most detailed report we do and will clearly highlight your real strengths and identify areas for further development. It also enables us to compare elements of your profile to consider patterns of behaviour and why they might occur.

3. Improve your Emotional Intelligence
– Building on your strengths
– How to develop your Emotional Intelligence including group and personal coaching
– Your personalised development plan
– What’s next?

We’ll keep hunger at bay with a continental breakfast, lunch, snacks, tea and coffee

The group size is limited so we can provide a more effective facilitation and group coaching with two very experienced facilitators.
