Social Intelligence for Leaders On-Site Training

This on-site training class is also available as Public Schedule Seminar.

Foster a positive and united team that is driven to succeed

Course Description/Agenda

As a leader, people across your organization are looking at you ... your actions ... your moods ... and your behaviors as a guide. Leaders can set the tone for success ... and failure. Your energy can alter your team and your organization - with positive and negative results. Studies show that how you act can directly impact how your team acts. If you're easygoing, your team will have similar behaviors. And all good leaders know that shared behaviors create unity and united teams are happier, more productive, and more successful.

As leaders, we have to ask ourselves, "What tone am I setting? How are my actions inspiring my team?"

Social Intelligence (SI) is one of the most powerful tools at your disposal for strengthening your leadership and your team. The seven key skills are more than just theory ... more than just boosting your "people skills" - they're about learning and understanding how people behave both individually and as a group.

SI opens your eyes to how you come across to others and how your team's behaviors can clue you in to what they want and need from you. Most importantly, SI helps you bridge the two for a successful, collaborative team that gets phenomenal results.

This workshop breaks down the science behind SI so you can quickly learn and apply the skills on the job. You'll learn how to:

  • Manage your emotions in tough situations
  • Understand and influence others
  • Successfully navigate through office politics
  • Motivate your team
  • Encourage collaboration across organizational boundaries

Go Beyond Theory - Create a Plan for Change

Get ready to go to work. This workshop goes beyond textbook theory and lecture with an application approach that lets you practice SI skills before you go back to work. You'll also leave with a personal Action Plan for changing and maximizing your SI.

If you want to rise above the average leader, you have to have a socially aware mind-set. In today's multigenerational, culturally diverse work force, you have to know your team and how to influence them to get greater results.

Register for the workshop to find out how your SI rates, how to improve your SI quotient, and how to make lasting, positive change for your team.
