Online Masterclass: Building EQ and Emotionally Intelligent Leadership

Apply Below
Loading Information

Our background, exposure, and upbringing influence our ‘mental model‘ or the way we see the world. Another word for ‘mental model’ is a paradigm. When you change your paradigm it is called a paradigm shift. Leaders have to be aware of their own paradigms and be willing to shift them when required.  

This masterclass is about turning our attention towards self-leadership. It focuses on the capacity to manage our internal landscape and being aware of the impact of that on relationships. Participants will explore the concepts of self-awareness, emotional intelligence, and the elements that contribute to being an emotionally intelligent leader.  In addition, you will have an opportunity to explore practices to build your EQ.

Learning Outcomes:
  • Develop both your internal and external self-awareness as a leader of self and leader of others;
  • Explore your level of emotional intelligence;
  • Understand yourself, your emotions, and your inner life to better express your thoughts and feelings as a leader; and
