Prof Dev: Leadership and Social/Emotional Intelligence: Making Constructive Use of Our Differences

Matrix Resources Inc. | 7001 Weston Pkwy #100, Cary, NC 27513 Feb 17 9:00 am - Feb 17 4:00 pm

Leadership is all about relationships and communication; highly effective leadership is all about mastering relationships and communication. This entails acquiring mastery of both self and others – i.e., self-awareness and social-awareness. This course is designed to heighten both your emotional and social intelligence through leadership models, concepts, measures, anecdotes, statistics, and research findings.

This course includes a leadership communication measure that goes beyond highlighting strengths and potential pitfalls. Even if you have already taken the Myers Briggs measure, you will be exposed to a new application that allows you to observe and experience in real time what it means to make constructive use of your differences with others. As a practical takeaway, this process will enable you to apply the coursework on emotional and social intelligence with your own team members (and family!) following the course. No other leadership or communication measure lends itself to this fascinating process.

Finally, you will learn how permanent, positive change evolves through several leadership development change models and concepts such that you can perpetuate your learnings from today’s course. Improve all relationships of significance in your life via your ability to create buy-in, comfort in communicating uncomfortable messages, and harmony. That’s leadership.
