Emotional Intelligence in Leadership Day 2

Course Details

Untitled Document Since two prerequisites are absolutely required for this course, PDC will be reviewing and confirming eligibility of registrants. A letter of registration confirmation will be mailed once the review is completed.

What is a leader's business? A leader's business is training and developing people -- human capital --the most valuable asset any organization has. As such, leadership is about the art of influencing and impacting people for the better. Emotionally Intelligent leaders are more successful at this because they project more strongly and more positively through powerful Leadership Presence.

This course will examine the three areas of Leadership Presence: Projection, Control, and Connection. It will review how Leadership Presence manifests itself every day in the behavior of leaders, and what can be done to improve it. Attendees will be using the results of their Emotional Quotient Inventory (EQ-i®) to build a comprehensive analysis of their overall Leadership Presence. The analysis will help attendees locate their areas of leadership "drag", their overall balance as a leader, and areas that provide the most leverage for change. Each attendee will receive some coaching from the instructor on the specific area of their EQ-i® that will provide the most leverage for change, and will be taking a web course to further their learning in that area.

This one day workshop builds on the lessons learned in the first Emotional Intelligence in Leadership Part 1 class by teaching attendees how to enhance the specific areas of their EQ-i® results that comprise Leadership Presence. These are the areas of Emotional Intelligence most easily seen by others and the areas that will have the greatest impact on leadership effectiveness. Attendees will be required to have completed both the EQ-i® and the Emotional Intelligence in Leadership workshop before being able to register for this course.
