Webinar Format

Whether we have a formal role inside an organization, lead efforts in our communities or manage clients and partners in our own business, we’re all leaders in some way and we all need to relate well with others. With the challenges brought on by COVID-19, maintaining strong relationships despite social distancing is vital for our well-being and success.

This workshop offers training in the Emotional Intelligence (EI) skills tied to connection mainly self-awareness and empathy. Strengthening these two EI domains enables better collaboration with team members, clients and partners. Self-Awareness means honest clarity about our “internal states, impulses and disposition,” a foundational EI skill that positively impacts self-regulation. Empathy, an interpersonal skill, attunes us to how others are feeling enabling improved social interactions and better teamwork. Increased self-awareness and empathy translate to greater purpose, improved communication skills and productivity. As we’ve experienced on a global scale, human connection is crucial for business and life.
