    As HR professionals we understand that subject matter expertise and a laser task focus isn’t always enough to be effective.  Modern work environments require teamwork, communication, and trust (with both customers and colleagues).  A superstar that can’t play well with others can inevitably be less valuable than an employee with less skill/expertise who can work effectively with others.  For most of our best peoples, then next level in their carrier growth will depend on their ability to lead and communicate with Emotional Intelligence.  Emotional Intelligence (sometimes referred to as E.I. or E.Q.) has become a common concept, but can your leadership team indentify actionable items  and effective common sense vocabulary to coach individuals and lead organizational culture around E.Q.?

    In this workshop we will introduce micro-burst overviews on some of the core concepts used in coaching for Emotionally Intelligent leadership and teamwork: define emotional intelligence, emotional bank accounts, adapting to others’ appreciation languages, the platinum rule, responsibility for intention AND impact, strengths becoming weaknesses, effectiveness with people who are different from us, common courtesies, psychological safety, radical candor and managing up.
