Emotions percolate through every aspect of our lives. They affect how we think, who we are and how we live. They exert a powerful pull on how we behave and how we cope with change and stress. They dictate how well we manage our relationships and they ultimately determine how productive, happy, satisfied and effective we are.
How well leaders work with emotions not only has a direct effect on productivity, teamwork, culture and performance: developing EI skills like perseverance, resilience, self-confidence, self-motivation, connectivity, empathy and social intelligence is critical to both work and life success. Skills like these are essential for happy, productive workplaces. When they’re not there, we notice.
Leadership starts from the inside out. As we point out in our leadership clinics: “Before you lead outwards, you need to look inwards.” You need to understand and manage yourself first, before you can take on the task of leading others.
An excellent workshop full of interesting concepts and strategies – and a guide that’s easy to follow with great topics and useful exercises. It’s given me a new mind set and greater awareness on how to deal with those difficult situations not only at work but at home as well. Since completing the workshop, I’ve put many of the techniques into practice with great results.
Repeatedly, research shows that what sets successful leaders apart from the rest is their ability to ‘tune into’ and manage themselves effectively, and be mindful of and responsive to the needs of others – in other words, their level of personal mastery and emotional intelligence. These are not just optional extras anymore – understanding the benefits of leading with emotional intelligence and knowing how to apply key practices of EI leaders is a ‘must-have’ capability in today’s leadership environment.
Whatever your leadership roles or goals – whether it’s to be more visionary, to manage relationships better or to inspire superior performance –- the critical factor to begin with is inside yourself.
7 Practices for Leading with Emotional Intelligence is a highly interactive, 2-day coaching clinic giving down-to-earth insights into the critical leadership practices of Personal Mastery and Emotional Intelligence, and opportunities to try-out a collection of practical tools for applying the 7 key EI practices to energise your leadership, help create more connective team relationships and bring out the best in yourself and others. It will help you:
An all round informative, thought-provoking experience. The most valuable course I’ve had the opportunity to attend in many years. Loved the relaxed atmosphere and enjoyed your skill in presentation. You know your stuff Bill – that’s obvious – and the guide is a great resource, very user friendly and packed with valuable tools. I’ve been inspired to re-evaluate where I am at and encourage others to broaden their knowledge and rethink their own views and opinions. Maybe even improve the world a little! Thank you Bill.

“When I look back on my facilitation track record so far, I realise that what I’ve learned about practical facilitation, comes not just from facilitating myself or with others, but also, more importantly, from those I’ve helped learn facilitation, who’ve taught me valuable lessons about what seems to work when it comes to helping groups work effectively together…”
