Significantly increase your leadership effectiveness and competence
While the qualities traditionally associated with leadership—such as intelligence, toughness, determination, and vision—are required for success, they aren’t enough. Successful leaders also have a high degree of emotional intelligence, which includes self-awareness, self-regulation, motivation, empathy, and social skill. Emotional intelligence — your ability to express and control your own emotions – is critical as a leader. But so is your ability to understand, interpret and respond to the emotions of your team.
Your executive presence, often defined by your character, substance and style, is what catches the room’s attention. Your confidence, poise under pressure and decisiveness — as well as your communication and speaking skills, assertiveness and ability to read an audience or situation – contribute to what some might refer to as your “wow” factor.
These may be described as soft skills, but they can be hard to master. That’s why I incorporate the latest findings from neuroscience and emotional intelligence to guide our individual and group sessions.
