Building DEI through Emotional Intelligence
Building Diversity, Equity & Inclusion From a Foundation of Emotional Intelligence will be the focus of a workshop presented by the Women’s Initiative Task Force over four days in September.
Christine Watkins Davies, MA, PCC and Zach Montroy, SPHR will present the workshop over two weeks on Sept. 22, 23, 29 and 30. All presentations will take place from noon to 4:00 pm central. The cost to register is $225 for IAAO members and $365 for nonmembers. The deadline to register is Friday, Sept. 10 in order for participants to receive and complete a EQi 2.0 Online Assessment. Participants will receive their individualized 27-page report during the session.
Emotional Intelligence, or EQ, is a leader’s ability to understand their own emotions and how they affect the workplace as well as how to manage others’ emotions. It is a key component to being an effective and intentional leader. The Emotionally Effective Leader Workshop provides attendees with a deeper understanding of Emotional Intelligence as well as a key set of tools to be the well-rounded leader needed in today’s environment.
Alternating between group activities and individual reflective exercises, the engaging workshop will encourage participants to focus on their leadership strengths and areas they can develop further. Leveraging results from leaders’ EQ-i 2.0 Leadership Reports, participants will learn the importance of emotional intelligence in effective leadership and leave with a better understanding of his or her strengths and areas to develop to enhance their leadership skills, as well as an action plan on how to increase his or her effectiveness.
