Emotional Intelligence in Leadership

5-6 April 2018


Are you ready for the next chapter in your leadership story?
Emotional Intelligence is now moving front and centre for leadership teams. Leaders must have the ability to understand social interactions and solve the complex problems of work life. From resolving disputes to negotiating high-powered deals, business leaders must learn to read each other’s signals, and understand their own strengths and weaknesses.
As a leader, you need the ‘hard smarts’ of the ‘soft skills’ to move your organisation forward.

Why you need to pay attention

‘The higher a position in an organisation the more EI matters.’ Daniel Goleman

Leading people is complex: simple adjustments, such as knowing your mind, relating with empathy, being a team player and making balanced decisions, can lead to extraordinary results.

Focusing on your interpersonal effectiveness is
Emotionally Intelligent Leadership.
Are you ready?

Who’s it for?

  • Experienced leaders and managers wanting to optimise their leadership impact.
  • Career professionals ready to connect personal mastery to successful business outcomes.
  • HR professionals and specialists wanting to develop ‘organisational’ emotional intelligence through intra- and inter-personal skills.

“In leadership positions, emotional competence accounts for virtually the entire advantage.”

The Harvard Business Review has hailed emotional intelligence as,
“a ground-breaking, paradigm-shattering idea; one of the most influential business ideas of the decade”.

“The pathway for emotional intelligence starts with effective communication between the rational and emotional centres of the brain.”

What’s covered during the program?

  • Emotional Style: gain insight into the science of assessing your overall emotional style and subsequent leadership impact.
  • Neuroscience: understand the ‘neuroplasticity’ of the brain and how, with persistence, we can rewire our emotional states and responses to achieve better results.
  • Emotional Intelligence Competencies: recognise, understand and manage your and others’ emotions through leveraging the power of self-awareness, self-management, social awareness and relationship management necessary for outstanding leadership performance.
  • Practical Application: apply tools and techniques to perceive, understand and manage emotions in self and others; understand emotional triggers and manage conflict; and gain higher levels of creativity, motivation and health.

In addition, TTCoaching offers a valuable opportunity for us to support our comunity.

On any given night in Australia, 1 in 200 people is homeless; sadly, since 2006 the ACT has had the highest percentage increase (at +70.6%) in homelessness in all of Australia (Homelessness Australia).

TTCoaching has entered into a valuable partnership with Backpack Beds for Homeless to ensure 10% of its income from your participation goes directly to providing crucial shelter for ACT’s homeless. Backpack Beds for Homeless is an Australian company that produces swags (“backpack beds”) specifically for distribution to the homeless around the world. It is TTCoaching’s way of saying ‘thank you’.

Thank you for your support.
