Leaders have an ambivalent relationship with emotions, which they may consider as irrational, private, and often negative.
However, emotions are an inherent part of each of our daily lives at work. What’s more, leaders often fail to recognize the impact of their own emotions and behaviors upon their team, and the overall climate of the organization.
Thus, it is imperative for a leader to better understand emotions, to manage their emotions and those of others in order to reach a better performance, and create value professionally and personally.
This online class will demonstrate the integration of leadership and emotional intelligence for the leader as a person, for their teams, and for their organisations.
Participants will get insight into the nature of emotions, the importance of the connection between emotion and behaviour, and how to gain the capability to regulate and adapt one’s emotions in every situation.
They will understand what true leadership is: the kind that enables sustainable success. We call “true leaders” those who enable an organisational environment that liberates people’s initiative and leads both to outstanding business performance and to passion and positive emotions.
