Personal Mastery: Leading with EI

Mindfulness, self-management and connectivity are all part of being an emotionally intelligent leader – and it makes practical business sense too...

The public profile of a good leader is still seen as someone who's tough, decisive, ultra-rational and results-driven. But more and more leaders today are becoming aware that their own thinking, feelings, moods and behaviour impact the people they lead in ways that profoundly affect business success.

It’s at the ‘feelings’ level that many performance and productivity problems lie.

Leading with EI is about realising that if you want people to take committed action and put in a superior performance, leaders have to connect with their feelings first.   EI leaders are able to resonate with the moods of their teams, then act in ways that bring out the best in them...                                         Read more >>>

That's where our 2-day, practise-intensive coaching clinic on Leading with Emotional Intelligence comes in. This clinic for leaders at all levels aims to help you:


Understand the role personal mastery and emotional intelligence play in producing high-performance leadership results


Explore key dimensions and practices to energise leadership


Create more connective and constructive team relationships


Assess the impact your emotional patterns have on you as a leader


Cultivate a more emotionally resonant leadership style


Deal more effectively with feelings – both yours and others’


Apply tools to create more positive emotional climates at work

EI@Work: Working with Emotional Intelligence


What better time than Spring to give a boost to staff morale, motivation and commitment...

At The Change Forum, we believe it’s just as important for staff as it is for leaders to understand and manage their emotions at work. Emotional Intelligence is the basis for great teamwork and positive, productive workplaces – and decreasing dysfunctional behaviours that drain energy and turn teams toxic.

EI at Work is a down-to-earth, 1-day interactive seminar that will show your staff what EI is, why it matters and how to start applying basic EI tools and behaviours at work. After attending, your staff will:


Understand the nature of EI, its impact on them, their relationships and their work ability


See how feelings influence job satisfaction and their ability to get along well with others


Have constructive ideas on how to manage moods better and control those negative emotions


Know how to connect and interact better and deal with difficult people – cantankerous colleagues, cranky customers, overbearing bosses


Cope better with stress, pressure and the demands of change

What do staff say about this stimulating, informative and interactive seminar?

“EI at Work was awesome….A great learning experience that everyone should partake in.” Kyle Leary, Qld Health

“A worthwhile course applicable to any profession. Course content excellent and very applicable to my work.” Mary Cataldo, Disability Services Qld

“Impressed by the way you unpack EI - I see how it can transform workplaces, relationships & the way we live & learn.” Jan Fenlon, Gracemere SS

If you want to create constructive emotional climates and connect with the people you lead in ways that energise and inspire – you’ll want to come along to one of these great leadership learning opportunities yourself – or send your key managers or emerging leaders…

Know others keen to build EI capacity at work? Greatly appreciated if you could update staff, colleagues and friends around the Region...  And if you would extend this circulation to your wider management, HR or other business networks, we’d also be most grateful.

Thank you for your time.  And if you don't want any more notices of upcoming events or newsletters – that’s OK, just let us know.  (Unsubscribe link below)

Hope to see you some time in 2009!  Cheers…
