7 Practices for Leading with EI

7 Personal Mastery practices for more connective leadership

Bring more emotional balance and personal mastery to staying connected and emotionally in-step with the people you lead...

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.

Do you want to...

Connect

with your people better and get in tune with them?

Manage

your moods and handle conflict, anger and hostility better?

Work

more diligently on your level of self-awareness and self-mastery?

Energise

people you lead and create constructive emotional climates?

Diagnose

the impact your emotional style has on others?

Boost

your leadership performance and bring out the best in others?

Develop

personal strategies to be a more emotionally intelligent leader?

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.

Re-constitute how you lead and connect with your team

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. 

That’s where Leading with Emotional Intelligence comes in...

7 Practices for Leading with Emotional Intelligence is 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 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:

Develop connectivity skills such as empathy, rapport and compassion

Explore the role EI leaders play in creating constructive emotional climates

Deal more effectively with feelings and reduce the effects of disruptive emotions

Be more alert to how feelings affect work performance and workplace well-being

Assess the impact your emotional patterns have on your effectiveness as a leader

Stock-take your EI skills, identify strategies and set self-coaching goals to be a more emotionally intelligent leader

Manage your own emotions, maintain emotional balance and cultivate a more resonant and connective style of leadership

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.

Why not encourage all your leaders to become more self-aware and adopt a more emotionally intelligent style...

If public dates or locations don’t suit, you have 10 or more people interested in attending, or you want to run something more tailored to your team or unit, an on-site clinic may be more economical and a better fit your cultural context or team-working challenges.
