September Learning Lab

Emotional Intelligence = Personal Leadership

Categories: TAHRA Webinar Meeting

Presented by Nancy Gunter

What is Emotional Intelligence? In short, it is your ability to manage yours and others emotions to adapt to environments in order to achieve your goals. Your personal leadership style is directly connected to your level of Emotional Intelligence (EI). Regardless of what you have heard of EI, this session will open your eyes to how you and every other person in the world is made up and why you (and they) do some of the things you do. All of the EI information is research based which means it isn’t someone’s idea of how they THINK things operate. It is factual and gives concrete explanation as to what happens to us when we are in a given situation.

Why is this program critical now more than ever?

  • Have you had someone say something to you and 15-20 minutes later you have the PERFECT comeback --- but they are already gone?
  • Have you ever said “yes”, when you meant to say “no”?
  • Have you ever seen someone lose control of a group or create a hostile situation because they didn’t realize what was happening around them? 

If you said YES to any of these, that is Emotional Intelligence – BUT, EI is so much more than just that….

The good news is that Emotional Intelligence can INCREASE for the rest of your life! If you want to improve your Personal Leadership, you CAN!

Leadership is critical to the success of any organization. That doesn’t mean the top leadership only. That means EVERY supervisor, EVERY leader, within the organization either contributes to the success or deters success. The emotional intelligence of each person either opens of the door to teamwork, or closes the door.

At this lab you will: 

  • Enhance your emotional intelligence in order to influence organizational communication and behavior.
  • Learn how to establish key relationships with outside organizations to achieve your goals.
  • Learn how to manage emotions and coach your organization through change.
  • Enhance EI in order to provide coaching to effectively manage organizational talent.
