Leadership and Contemporary Leadership

The most effective leaders are all alike in one crucial way: they all have a high degree of what has come to be known as emotional intelligence. It’s not that IQ and technical skills are irrelevant. They do matter, but…they are the entry-level requirements for executive positions. My research, along with other recent studies, clearly shows that emotional intelligence is the sine qua non (a thing that is absolutely necessary) of leadership. Without it, a person can have the best training in the world, an incisive, analytical mind, and an endless supply of smart ideas, but he still won’t make a great leader – Daniel Goleman. In today’s world of uncertainty, managers who want to become business leaders need to build capabilities across the company to ensure the business stays successful in the future. This includes being able to determine the need for change within the company or business, as well as the current state of play – how ready are people for change! This 2-day program presents Emotional Intelligence as critical competency for Self-Managed Leadership and Development Leadership. Additionally, the program discusses Contemporary Leadership together with Situational Leadership Styles.
