About the course
Successful leaders must learn to identify their strengths and challenges, and understand how to use them to support their own success and their organization’s goals. This program contains four separate sections: Leadership Success Factors, Emotional Intelligence, Decision-Making and Team Effectiveness.
Before we begin, you will complete the Multidimensional Emotional Intelligence Quotient leadership assessment, which will provide you with your leadership profile and the results of which will be used throughout the program. Using these results, we will examine the context in which leadership occurs. This program is a learning laboratory for leadership.
In addition, we will use small group exercises and cases to illustrate the main point(s) of the material we are covering. Participation in these activities—questions, observations, points of view, asking for and providing behavioral feedback—is important for success in the course and to enhance each participant’s experience.
At the conclusion of this workshop, you will have an action plan for:
- Broadening your leadership capabilities
- Deepening your EI self awareness and maximizing your EI potential
- Making and implementing impactful decisions
- Building effective teams
- Developing your professional network
Session 1 - Leadership Success Factors
Successful leaders require a heightened sense of self-awareness. This can be developed through the ability to identify their strengths and challenges and understand how to use them in support of their own success and the organization's goals. Participants will reflect on these points individually and in groups, taking into consideration select leadership theories and personal experience.
Session 2 – Emotional Intelligence
Self-awareness plays a large role in understanding emotional intelligence and relationship management. This section will be an exploration of how emotional intelligence contributes to leadership effectiveness. Participants will review the five components of emotional intelligence and explore how to apply these concepts to their current leadership situation.
Session 3 – Decision-Making
Leaders not only need to be aware of the decisions made within their organization, but they also need to be able to recognize how effective those decisions are to the organization's success. Participants will analyze these points as they pertain to their own unique situation.
Session 4 – Team Effectiveness
Team effectiveness is the cornerstone of all successful organizations. One of the primary characteristics of an effective team is its ability to build and maintain trust. As a leader, how do you handle trust within the organization? Participants will analyze the theory of trust formation and discuss how to build, maintain, and repair trust amongst themselves and their colleagues. In addition, participants will learn about the five dysfunctions of a team, and apply them to their own team.
