Self-Awareness: Leading with Emotional Intelligence
This 3-hour course includes 90 minutes of live online instruction and 90 minutes of self-directed learning.
A boss demands, while a leader guides. There are many approaches and philosophies for effective employee management. But if an employee doesn’t like your style, they aren’t going to stick around. Therefore, it’s critical to lead with empathy and cultivate high emotional intelligence. This starts with self-awareness training.
Having more knowledge of ourselves can only be beneficial. Through introspection and with help from others to fill in our blind spots, we can discover how we work best, how we react to stress, and much more. Being a leader to others means knowing how to lead ourselves first.

Why You Want To Learn It
Leaders need to inspire and engage with their teams to drive business results. This requires leading with empathy and emotional intelligence. Emotional intelligence training creates leaders that are confident; they know the direction they need to lead their team, and they take them toward it; they develop themselves and their skills. Self-aware leaders understand how they come across to others and can supply what each person needs to work best.
How It Will Help You
Focusing inward results in transformation as leaders. Growing as a leader means we are gaining trust, inspiring others, building psychologically safe spaces, and driving our teams to success. As self-aware leaders, we have the power to look at situations from a new perspective, focusing outward instead of inward. When we see what others see, we can lead with empathy and emotional intelligence.

Leaders have worked hard to get where they are, but they don’t often have the luxury of figuring out the job as they go along. Whereas trial and error learning as an employee is somewhat expected, trial and error in a leadership position can lead to soured company culture, disengaged employees, and a higher turnover rate.

High self-esteem at work can make it easier to speak up and be creative with your ideas. Read More >
When we talk about intelligence, we often think in terms of knowledge, memory, and creativity. After all, our intelligence has been measured over the years in various academic and work settings, all to do with what we remember, what we know, and our ability to express it. But there’s another aspect of intelligence out there that is equally important—emotional intelligence. And when it comes to emotional intelligence in the workplace, we as leaders would do well to understand this critical aspect of performance. Read More >
