Certificate Program: Leadership & Supervision, Executive Leadership


Are you an emotionally intelligent leader? Have you ever wondered why some leverage, while others struggle with emotions in a business environment? The foundation and success for all effective leaders include their ability to optimize their natural talents and their ability to leverage the talents of others. IQ and business acumen are a starting point.

You will experience the value and downfall of “being emotional” but are you become aware of how it impacts us and those we lead? During this course, you will move from learning to understanding and then to applying tactics and strategies to leverage emotional intelligence.

  • Review the five competencies of Emotional Intelligence – Creative Tension, Active choice, Resilience under Pressure, Empathic Relationships, Self-Awareness and Control
  • Identify the skills required to develop Emotional Intelligence within themselves
  • Develop a personal plan to utilize the skills of Emotional Intelligence
  • Practice newly acquired skills
  • How to carry out and practice Emotional Intelligence in a virtual/remote work environment
