Across the globe, a new generation of leaders are seeking to integrate personal mastery, mindfulness and emotional intelligence into their leadership lives and practice, not just to improve their personal productivity and performance, but to learn how to be more present, self-aware, focused, connected, less stress-prone and more emotionally balanced.

Emotional intelligence, personal mastery and mindfulness are all intimately inter-connected and essential for good leadership. To be a good leader you first have to know yourself – what we call personal mastery.  Mindfulness springs from self-awareness – the first of our 7 practices of Emotionally Intelligent Leaders. It’s how we put emotional competencies like self-awareness and self-management into action. To put it simply, mindful leadership starts with emotional intelligence – it’s key to being more fully in control of our feelings, thoughts and actions and waking up to what’s happening in and around us.

Our new Mindful Leadership in Action clinic extends our 10+ years of emotional intelligence coaching into refreshing new personal frontiers.  Here’s two vital leadership clinics coming up in your area soon…


Personal Mastery & Emotional Intelligence

7 crucial practices to build more effective and connective leaders…

Emotions matter for productive leadership. This highly-regarded clinic with it’s substantial EI Guidebook gives you loads of tools and insights into how to apply 7 essential practices to mindfully manage emotions, build productive, happy, high-performing cultures, create more connective relations and bring out the best in you and others. Learn how to:

¡  Tune in to your own patterns of thinking, feeling & behaving

¡  Connect better with the people you lead to inspire and motivate them

¡  Come to grips with the role leaders play as emotional care-takers

¡  Master practical tools to manage emotions and use them mindfully

¡  Take-on the role leaders play as emotional care-takers and amplifiers

¡  Control emotional hijacks and create a better emotional climate at work

¡  Handle defensiveness and other disruptive emotions in self and others

¡  Cultivate a more mindful, connective and resonant  leadership style

“Leading with EI taught me to look inside first before looking out, to do more reflecting and to practise to learn how to be a better leader. I liked the ‘how-to’ strategies and emphasis on the importance of practising the tools. You made it real, relating our learning back to real work and life examples and then back to our strategies. You really know your subject and I have been referring back to your excellent take-home book often...” Amanda P. Queensland Studies Authority

Course Features:  Take-away a 150-page revised edition of our comprehensive self-coaching Guide with 27 tools. Translate all that theory you’ve read about EI into tangible tools and practical actions. Stock-take your EI skills with our EI Leader Inventory based on the 7 Practices.  Use our 5-Step self-coaching model to develop a personal improvement action plan.

“An insightful workshop that encouraged self-reflection and helped me gain a better insight into the strategies I employ to self-manage. It was more than a chalk and talk. Bill has an easy, calm approach that creates a safe environment to participate and get the most out of sessions. Pace and content was well considered and the group dynamics and enthusiasm were a highlight for me, as well as Bill’s experience, knowledge and presentation skills.” Jay H., Queensland Health
