Leadership Influence Through Emotional Intelligence [featuring Colleen Stanley (top right)]
Challenges leaders to evaluate their proficiencies in four critical areas:
(1) Self-Awareness – the ability to recognize and understand emotions, triggers, strength, challenges and personal motivators.
(2) Self-Management ‐ the ability to control feelings and behaviors, adapt to changing circumstances, practice resilience and tenacity, and implement strategies for personal growth.
(3) Social Awareness ‐ the ability to empathize with the experiences of others, understand the dynamics of power and influence within
a group or organization, and positively impact the needs of others.
(4) Relationship Management ‐ the ability to inspire and influence, build teams and team consensus, communicates and executes the vision, develops positive relationships and creates trust and credibility.
- Recognize Triggers and Name Emotions: Triggers are accompanied by emotions. Reactions accompany those emotions. In any given situation, the reaction has the potential to damage relationships. Acknowledging the trigger and accurately naming the emotion are the jumping off point for each of the four critical areas of emotional intelligence.

You will learn new concepts and tools that will strengthen your emotional intelligence and propel you to a new level of influential leadership.
- Create High Performance Teams: By applying the proficiencies and key take-a-ways introduced, leaders will recognize and build teams that have a strong influence on the financial performance. Creating and sustaining a healthy company culture allows for continued growth and maximized earning potential.
