Our workshops are designed to be engaging and interactive learning experiences. We integrate small-group discussion, large group discussion, and individual reflection with presentation of key principles and concepts. The programs are designed to help participants understand the foundational principles of Emotional Intelligence, relate them to their individual circumstances, and use this knowledge to improve their relationships in the workplace, while advancing their personal development. An outcome of the workshop is the creation of a community of fellow learners to whom colleagues can look to for insight, engagement, and support.
Although we have broadly defined a set of workshops, we do not believe in a one-size-fits-all approach. As a boutique firm, we always modify our programs to meet our clients' needs.
We will travel for our clients and we always have facilitators in Chicago, Greater NYC, and Philadelphia.
Why Exceptional Leadership Requires a Balance of IQ and EQ
This session explores why leveraging both IQ and EQ is necessary to be an exceptional leader. Through an interactive session, we explore the physiological and biological aspects of emotional intelligence and how we can develop and manage our brain’s emotional functioning to make us better leaders. This session provides powerful insights into our unique strengths and opportunities as it pertains to emotional intelligence. Participants will have the opportunity to challenge assumptions and build upon their individual development plans.
Enhancing Emotional Intelligence and Collaboration with The Enneagram
Our Enneagram Workshop is grounded in the use of emotional intelligence to improve participant’s communication and collaboration. We review the principles and structure of the Enneagram, as well as an overview of the nine personality types. This will provide each individual with an understanding of their natural strengths and development areas. We provide an overview of the group composition making participants aware of the variety of personality types in their cohort.
Manager and Leader as Coach
This interactive session gives managers and leaders the opportunity to develop and practice their coaching skills. A global survey conducted by the Harvard Business Review and SuccessFactors found that 1,400 millennial respondents wanted more feedback from their managers. In fact, millennials said they desired one-on-one contact 50 percent more than their colleagues of different ages. This session provides managers with a coaching framework they can apply to their leadership practice. Participants will leave understanding of the value of providing feedback plus practical techniques for applying a coaching approach to various situations.
Leveraging Emotional Intelligence to Lead in all Facets of Life:
Work, Family, Community, and Self
Each of us interacts with the world in multiple dimensions, which we typically experience in distinct contexts. For most people, these include work, family, community, and self. While the contexts are distinct, the impact and influence of these relationships does not remain confined to a single context. Just as one can bring the energy and inspiration from a relationship in their community into their work life, they can just easily bring the negative aspects of a toxic professional relationship into their interactions with family. Emotional intelligence is a powerful tool to help individuals develop authentic, enduring, productive relationships in every facet of life.
Communication and the Emotional Glass Ceiling
This interactive session explores the connection between human relationships and communication, and highlights how they relate to emotional intelligence and ultimately building social capital. Emotional intelligence is a powerful tool for moving an individual toward realizing his or her potential. Altering emotions is a communications challenge that succeeds only when it breaks through a person's emotional glass ceiling. Participants will leave with a fundamental understanding of emotional intelligence plus practical techniques for building greater social capital.
