This workshop is designed for those involved in people-leading roles to gain an introductory understanding and appreciation of how emotional intelligence (EQ) can be effectively deployed to gain better efficacy in the “people-side of leadership”.
Most managers have strong technical skills and some also have high IQ but these alone more often than not, are not sufficient to ensure success. Other factors such as self-awareness, impulse control from auto-pilot patterns, persistency, self-motivation, resiliency and being able to build whilst sustaining collaborative team dynamics through empathy and positive relationships are qualities which set top performing leaders apart from the average.
“In the fields I have studied, emotional intelligence is much more powerful than IQ in determining who emerges as a leader. IQ is a threshold competence. You need it, but it doesn’t make you a star. Emotional intelligence can!” (Warren Bennis, author of ‘Becoming a Leader’)
Research proves that a manager or leader’s emotional intelligence has clear links not only to their own performance but it also impacts the people around them. Since these findings have been revealed, many innovative organizations such as the US Navy, Federal Express, Sheraton, American Express and HSBC have started integrating EQ into training and hiring to gain competitive advantage. It is becoming increasingly clear that these skills are the foundation of high-performing organizations.
Key learning objectives:
- Participants will gain strong awareness of the significance of emotional intelligence at the workplace and its potential impact on their leadership effectiveness
- Participants will gain foundational skills and EQ techniques that will help them develop more than 5 key EQ competencies and learn how these capabilities can make a noticeable difference to individual and team performance
- Participants will gain focused discernment about emotions and how their own emotional dynamics will affect their leadership styles and those whom they lead or manage
Training methodologies will include video clips reviews, team activities, group discussions and dialogues, actions planning and personal reflections.
