Leading with emotional intelligence

The concept of emotional intelligence is not new; emotional intelligence has been bandied around the workplace for decades. What is new? Emotional intelligence is now considered the #1 leadership skill for 2024 according to the World Economic Forum’s Future of Jobs 2023 Report. It is the ‘highly prized’ soft skill businesses are searching for in their leaders.

In this energising and empowering workshop, you will understand why emotional intelligence is essential to your success as a leader, the role you play in your emotional theme-park and how women who lead with emotional intelligence can transform both their career and their teams

 

Key takeaways

  • Demystify the world of emotions & nature vs nurture
  • Understand the relationship between emotional intelligence, confidence & being a transformational leader
  • Explore the EI competencies & how they can either support or hinder your leadership success
  • Identify where you are at & your focus areas to advance your leadership
  • Enrich your leadership toolkit of new strategies, activities & tools you can use for yourself & with your teams

How to banish confidence killers & say goodbye to self-doubt

Silence your inner critic and make self-confidence a lifetime habit
This seminar will discuss how internal factors such as critical self-talk and rumination hurt our confidence. It will explore why the business of self-improvement is disproportionately directed at women while discussing what confidence is and its myths. There will be plenty of science-backed strategies that we can employ in our personal and professional lives. It will also explore how external factors such as bias, likeability traps, female rivalry, and the unequal division of household labour chip away at our confidence, while simultaneously blaming gender inequality on women’s “lack of confidence”.

 

Key takeaways

  • Turning the dial down on critical self-talk
  • How confidence myths influence our self-sabotaging behaviours
  • How to navigate and recognise external obstacles to our confidence
  • Strategies for women, workplaces, and allies to address broader structural factors
