Resonant Leadership, Emotional Intelligence, and Inspiring Development in Others
July 23-27, 2012
Great leaders move us to greatness and inspire us to be at our best and move beyond it. Although they talk of strategy, they establish an emotional connection with others called resonance. They are in tune with others around them. Their own emotional intelligence allows them to create and nurture these relationships, whether as doctors, nurses, teachers, coaches, managers, or parents.
The experiences of mindfulness, hope, compassion, and playfulness are essential to building resonant relationships and renewal of the human organism at the neurological, hormonal, emotional, and behavioral levels.
Based on decades of research into emotional intelligence competencies and longitudinal studies in their development, Professor Richard Boyatzis will lead the participants through examples of how to inspire oneself and others through building more effective relationships and having conversations that inspire us, and motivate us to be sustainable in our performance and adapt to changing circumstances.
This course will provide the following: A process for developing sustainable improvement in EI, resonant leadership, and sustaining performance through hope, compassion, mindfulness, and playfulness. An understanding of the psycho-physiological role of the Positive Emotional Attractor in motivating change. The understanding that coaching with compassion is effective in helping people change in sustainable ways, but coaching for compliance is not. And why it is crucial to the sustainability of the leader or coach as well. How to coach others to develop EI, resonant leadership, and to sustainably change.
