Emotional Intelligence: Why it's important, Why it matters

What is emotional intelligence and why is it so important to your effectiveness as a leader and as a part of a team? In this workshop, we will discuss how emotional intelligence is more than having feelings and being smart. Emotional Intelligence can be learned, practiced and honed with effort and motivation. Learning how to harness and wield these powerful tools begins with understanding them and knowing where they come from. 

After attending the course, the participant will be able to:

  • define emotion.
  • define Intelligence.
  • define Emotional Intelligence and describe its four domains.
  • justify the role Emotional Intelligence plays in leadership and team effectiveness.

Building Blocks of Successful Negotiation

Why do we dread the car salesman? Is it because we have (falsely) internalized that negotiations are a competition with a winner and a loser, when negotiation is just the art and science of securing agreements between two or more interdependent parties? In this class, we will dismantle some of the common misconceptions about what the characteristics of a good negotiator are, and get you started on the basic skills of becoming a better negotiator.

In this class we will learn:

  • How to prepare well for a negotiation
  • What a BATNA and a reservation price is, and how to use it
  • How to move the conversation from distributive to integrative bargaining

Individual and cultural differences in negotiations

Effective Delegation

“It will be faster if I just do it myself!”. Haven’t we all had this thought and acted on it? Yet, we also took away the chance to learn and grow by tackling a tough project from one of our mentees. How can we delegate effectively while maintaining an appropriate level of evaluation and control?

In this class, we are going to learn how to delegate effectively by learning how to:

  • Assign responsibility, delegate authority and create accountability
  • Spot barriers to effective delegation and how to navigate them
  • Set up a clear process for delegation with the delegate
  • Develop a communication plan with people we delegate to

First Things First: Managing Time in a Time Crunched World

In this course we learn why managing time is so difficult … [hint: the homo sapiens brain evolved 200,000 years ago … but electricity changed everything when it was implemented widely in 1919 and our brains haven’t caught up!] … and how we can get a little better at it by using a couple simple tools that work with our homo sapiens brain, and not against it like so many of the commercially available time management tools/systems.
