Emotional Intelligence for Managers
Emotional intelligence is your ability to recognize and understand emotions in yourself and others, and your ability to use this awareness to manage your behaviour and relationships.
It is the bridge between diversity & inclusion.
With a different perception about the workplace itself, their view of professionalism, and the role and purpose of leadership. Current leaders, the majority of whom are not Millennials are increasingly frustrated, as several parts of their strategy and toolkit don't seem to be working effectively.
In normal times, remote workers tend to be happier and more productive than their in-office counterparts. However, in current circumstance remote work can lead to professional isolation and burnout.
Leaders need to integrate Emotional intelligence strategies to make this work in the long run
Most managers learn their skills "on the job," which essentially means "trial and error." A HBR research suggests that first-time managers are 30 years old, while the average age of those in leadership training is 42. That means managers are leading others for a full decade before receiving training (if at all).

This programme has helped me introspect and understand what drives me. I specially found the session of Empathy most insightful, and the work sheets actually helped me get a clearer perspective of the areas that I personally need to work on in order to increase my efficacy as a leader and therefore that of my team.
Through the sessions the realisation that emotional intelligence is a very important skill set, to create positive impact, was an invaluable one!

The program combines the aspects of self-reflection and application to professional situations in a seamless way. It is one of the rare trainings that will not phase out in few weeks or months but sets you up to be more effective in current endeavors.
Highly recommend for high potential young talents, new line managers and any senior professional who seek to enhance their leadership skills.
