Come and join your FMI colleagues on Wednesday, June 5, 2019 for our last event of the 2018-19 season. This informative professional development session is entitled "Cultivating Emotional Intelligence for Impactful Leadership Presence" with Mara Vizzutti, New Avenue Leadership.
While corporate life has always been demanding, the pressures to accomplish more with less has been exacerbated by many factors including: the expectation of instant communication via technology, global competition, economic downturns and baby boomers retiring in great numbers resulting in job gaps in many sectors. These and other stressors have made leadership in the 21st century more taxing.
Many working professionals are operating with a ceaseless onslaught of priorities and fires to put out. Meanwhile the development of other skills related to more effectively managing their relationships with themselves and others can be overlooked.
As a result, the attributes of emotional intelligence (how leaders manage their relationship with themselves, their colleagues and how other experience them) can fall to the wayside in the rush to meet deadlines. Leadership presence can be undermined.
In this hands-on practical workshop we will work with:
- Defining Leadership Presence and Emotional Intelligence,
- Assessing our strengths and opportunities to grow on our own EI,
- The 5 components of Emotional Intelligence at work and the behaviors that inform them.
When leaders develop their own inner capacities and support their direct reports to do the same, a more positive, trustworthy culture can be generated in the workplace. This positive culture is grounded in a series of respectful, authentic conversations that set the stage for the ongoing growth and development of all employees regardless of role or position.
