Richard Boyatzis & Scott Taylor — Developing Better Leaders...

Developing Better Leaders through Coaching, Emotional Intelligence, Renewal and Resonant Relationships a 2019 Cape Cod Institute workshop led by Richard Boyatzis and Scott Taylor July 8-12, 2019

Richard Boyatzis and Scott Taylor

Developing Better Leaders through Coaching, Emotional Intelligence, Renewal and Resonant Relationships
July 8-12, 2019

We live in disturbing and confusing times. Leadership often appears inadequate to take us to new and better futures together. In all sectors, organizations and in every country, we face a dearth of leaders prepared to help us with a positive and effective vision and execution to move forward. With a few exceptions, we need better leaders. But that means we need better ways to develop people willing to step up or seeking the responsibility of leadership.

Using their own research and that of close colleagues, Professors Richard E. Boyatzis and Scott N. Taylor will lead the class through a series of exercises, reviewing research showing how effective leaders use emotional, social and cognitive intelligence to build better relationships, ones that resonate with the people around them — all of the people around them. To reach and sustain that degree of effectiveness, leaders need to engage in renewal practices for themselves and the people around them — and renewing the potency of their relationships. Topics will be explored as to how and what emotional and social intelligence is and where it fits with cognitive intelligence. Research from 37 behavioral, longitudinal studies, as well as 2 fMRI neuroimaging studies and 2 hormonal studies will show how coaching to vision and resonant relationship is far more effective than coaching to goals or problems. The underlying theory is Intentional Change Theory and how to create moments of the psychophysiological state called the Positive Emotional Attractor versus the Negative Emotional Attractor. Exercises will provide introductions and practice in coaching with compassion versus coaching for compliance. The applicability to other forms of developmental relationships, like leadership, parenting, medical care, clerical counseling and so forth will be examined and explored.

The week will involve numerous exercises as well as some homework with recommendations offered for readings after the program (i.e., no pre-readings). Professor Boyatzis will lead the first three classes and Professor Taylor will lead the last three classes, teaching the Wednesday class together.
