How Emotional Intelligence Drives Performance


Full-Access to share with your organization

Leaders set the tone of their organization, positive or negative, many times without even knowing it. Neuroscience shows that people follow (or mimic) leaders, especially in times of change and uncertainty. When leaders lack emotional intelligence, it has far-reaching consequences, including lower engagement, interpersonal conflict, and a higher turnover rate.

Emotionally intelligent leaders are shown to perform more than 40 percent higher (Landry, 2019) than their counterparts. By cultivating and even mastering emotional intelligence, leaders naturally nurture others to achieve their highest potential, present challenges as opportunities, and provide vision and purpose that sets a tone and grounds people to be part of a more significant cause.

In the course, we will examine key dimensions for developing high-performance leaders: self-awareness, stress tolerance, and interpersonal relationships. The course will utilize a neuroscience-based perspective to provide tools and techniques to take your emotional intelligence to the next level. We will end the class by discussing common derailers that can hinder a leader’s success and how to avoid them.
