Self-Leadership & Emotional Intelligence
The ability to relate to others effectively is a key component in successful leadership. Strong interpersonal and communication skills have a positive impact on the morale and effectiveness of a team or organization. This seminar draws on the core skills of Emotional Intelligence — self-awareness, self-management, empathy, and managing relationships — and addresses common communication pitfalls in a professional setting. Participants learn how to draw on their emotions without becoming reactive or caught in power struggles and choose from a range of options in any given situation or relationship at work.
Creating a Values-Driven Organization
Building a strong and healthy organization with shared values has become the most significant factor in competitive advantage and brand differentiation in business today. Values are deeply held principles that influence the behavior and decision-making of individuals, management teams, and companies as a whole. The Seven Levels of Awareness model offers a framework to leaders for understanding how a range of values is needed to ensure that sustainability, internal cohesion, and strategic partnerships are in place. Within this framework, employees can be engaged and motivated in new ways that unleash their hidden potential and generate genuine enthusiasm for fulfilling the mission.
Most businesses inevitably find themselves navigating some kind of conflict. Often, the conflict seems to have come out of nowhere when actually the conditions for its surfacing have likely been building for some time, just like a dormant volcano waiting to erupt. Some conflict is inevitable, yet it is possible to minimize its frequency and intensity by creating an organizational culture that promotes cooperation and understanding. Participants in this seminar will learn some practical approaches and skills to engage colleagues in ways that encourage openness, value each other’s contributions, and inspire genuine commitment to the team and its goals.
Many challenges in the workplace can be traced to differences in personalities, worldviews, and behavioral styles. Being able to navigate these unique characteristics of each individual in a way that truly motivates employees is an essential skill for managers and team leaders.
