Leading while Speaking

Level – Intermediate | 1-Day Course | 8 Hours CPE

Emotional Intelligence is the ability to recognize your own emotions, understand the meaning behind it, and realize the affect on those around you. Leaders with high emotional intelligence are usually successful in most things they do. Why? Because they're the ones that others want on their team. When they send an email, it gets answered. When they make a request, their team answers the call.

 

In this workshop, leaders will engage in discussions and exercises demonstrating the skills and tools necessary to use emotions as assets when leading their team.  Leaders will also create a personal plan and roadmap for increasing their emotional intelligence based on their current skill level.  Also included is a leadership assessment with a 20-page report on 8-levels of leadership competencies.

Infusing CALM in the Workplace

Level – Intermediate | 1/2-Day Course | 4 Hours CPE

At times of high stress, employees often try to tackle several jobs in a desperate attempt to get things done.  They are often acting in a reactive manner, trying to multi-task. Without thoughtful focus and attention, work product diminishes, deadlines are missed and results suffer.   Remaining CALM© enables greater productivity and improved bottom line results.

 

Throughout the workday, leaders and staff experience a myriad of emotions (happiness, sadness, anger, fear, and many more). Anger and frustration can be the most intense of the emotions and can cloud their thinking, causing even the most articulate of leaders to react to a situation vs. choosing to respond. In this collaboration and customer service course, they will learn the CALM© Method to manage through ANY emotional trigger. They will learn how to build the muscle in the brain that will enable them to respond in any situation regardless of the intensity of the emotion.
