Emotionally Intelligent Leadership
During the last decade, the business case for developing the skills of emotional intelligence has been mounting. Global research studies have confirmed the relationship between EI and leadership effectiveness, employee retention, sales performance, effective teamwork, job satisfaction and occupational stress. Enhancing EI can dramatically improve decisions, behavior and performance at work – as our moods, feelings and emotions influence us every day. Since our feelings underpin relationships and other important issues as listed above, enhancing EI can produce a significant effect on the bottom line.
Dealing with Difficult Conversations
Whether initiating change, confronting someone about an issue or behavior, or delivering unfavorable news, difficult conversations in the workplace are inevitable. These conversations can be especially hard because of the uncertainty of how they’ll be received, what they’ll accomplish or what their consequences will be. But ignoring problems won’t make them disappear – in fact, most will escalate if not addressed. With realistic examples and role-playing activities, this program helps participants as they prepare, carry out and close difficult conversations in the most productive manner – leading them to embrace, rather than fear, confrontation and produce long-lasting benefits for both the employee and organization.

Team Building for Success: Adapt, Respond, Perform
Teams operate today within work environments that are unstable and unpredictable. Generally, constant change is considered the norm for teams, individuals and organizations. Developing teams that can quickly adapt and respond to changing conditions while continuing to perform effectively are a key challenge. Studies show that effective team performance is the result of several interrelated factors that, when adequately addressed, create optimal conditions for success. An experiential exercise will be used to learn, discuss and improve skills in the seven key areas.
Motivating and Engaging Your Team
Rolled out across the leadership group of an organization, this unique program creates a shared ownership model for improving employee engagement – a model where individual contributors and leaders both take responsibility for improving engagement within themselves, their colleagues and the company.
Leaders are provided with a framework, including an assessment process and tool kit, for having discussions with individual employees about their motivation – specifically, discussions about what employees feel passionate about, what type of leadership they find most motivating and finally, what they would like more or less of from their team and the organization itself.
Participants leave the workshop being able to:
- Effectively conduct individual engagement reviews
- Lead staff with a more motivating leadership style
- Drive higher levels of performance, satisfaction and success with their staff
