Emotional Intelligence & Leadership Success
EI (Emotional Intelligence), self-awareness and managing one's own emotions and reading and responding well to the emotions of others, is the hallmark of successful leaders in the corporate, political, not-for-profit and social realms.
EI is a hot topic today, and many projects have been undertaken to explore and understand the subject. EI has been featured in leading business journals such as Fortune and Harvard Business Review; however, there has been very little research or publications about the connection between EI and leadership, which is very important for the Human Resource professional.
EI has a strong impact on individual, team and leadership interactions. Developing better EI will serve to positively improve relationships and results, as well as performance, in each of these areas.
Studies have found that EI can account for up to 47% of work success. This session will highlight some findings from, The Emotionally Intelligent Trainer. The goal is to help acquaint participants with intriguing new research that examines both EI and the broader issue of its rolespecific to leadership, to help organizations realize greater work success. The training offers concrete, practical advice for anyone in any role that wants to foster and support an emotionally intelligent workforce.
The cornerstone of Emotional Intelligence is self-awareness and empathy, and the session will demonstrate how someone can become more in tune with his or her own feelings and competencies in order to assess, design, develop, implement and evaluate an organization's needs. Since EI is both measurable and can be developed, those sharing EI with their companies/clients can impact employees' ability to be more productive and innovative.
Most HR professionals enjoy this training because HR Specialists were in the forefront of EI. Participants will see how the EI-Leadership connection is paramount when linked with leadership behaviors at all levels. The business case for EI, which is a valuable tool for HR practitioners, will be presented. Participants can take this back to their organizations and show how EI contributes to the bottom line.
