Transformational Leadership Via Emotional Intelligence

Transformational Leadership Via Emotional Intelligence Training

Objective /Benefits

Emotional intelligence brings a new dimension to leadership, transforming relationships for lasting impacts and outstanding results. As change belongs to daily business, leaders need to become resilient to change and influence others to follow them, hence a greater need for emotional intelligence.

Leading by fear does provide results on a short-term basis, at the expense of relationships. When the most critical skill needed for business relies on ability to adjust, it requires flexibility, audacity; creativity and trust, all these only coming when people feel motivated. Emotional intelligence is all about adjusting leadership to ensure greater motivation, gaining understanding, loyalty, dedication and leading to visible outcomes.
This program starts with going behind the scenes of our emotions, understanding the biological and neurosciences phenomenon, then raising personal awareness on our own triggers towards emotional outbursts. Moving from self to others, we uncover how to decipher behaviours and to find a common agreement on each person emotion, before moving forward together.

Emotional intelligence is a self-development tool, which will also prove most useful for leaders with different generations in their staff.
Beside IQ, leaders with high EQ turn their followers into motivated and dedicated staff hence all together get significantly improved outcomes, both tangible and intangible.
