Build Better Leaders through Emotional Intelligence
Emotional intelligence (EI or EQ) is the difference between a good employee and a great employee, a good leader or a great leader. It establishes how well someone develops and maintains relationships, copes with challenges and how they use emotional information (their own and others) in a meaningful way.
Emotional intelligence is renowned for its capacity to increase team and organizational effectiveness through the development of leadership skills and abilities. In this session, we’ll examine Daniel Goleman’s six leadership styles, identifying core emotional intelligence composites that support each style’s leadership capacity, while identifying the areas of EI to watch for in supporting development in each style.
As part of this, we’ll discuss the Multi-Health System’s (MHS) model of EI, increasing awareness of how each of us can attend to and build our EI for greater individual leader well-being that supports team and organizational effectiveness.
