Have you ever worked for an inspirational leader; someone who inspired you to be at your best more often, to develop and grow and work through adversity? Is this the leadership legacy you want to be remembered by?

Two tools, Emotional Intelligence (EQ-i 2.0) and Pearman Personality Integrator, have created quite a buzz in their respective communities and for good reason. They help you understand more about who you are and how you relate to others in a variety of settings. In this session we will explore how to incorporate personality type and emotional intelligence when developing leaders in a workable way. Learn how to build a business case to use emotional intelligence in the workplace, how these two tools can combine to paint a more vivid picture for yourself and others, and how to leverage strengths and harness opportunity areas.

During this event we will:

  • Learn how to use the Pearman and emotional intelligence in a practical way through case studies to help you build a business case in the workplace that gets results.
  • Build a business case to introduce and use emotional intelligence and the Pearman in the workplace to get results.
  • Discover ways to use both tools in coaching, leadership development and IDPs (individual development plans).
  • Identify strategies on how to use emotional intelligence and the Pearman immediately in both your work and personal life.

Learn about what leadership characteristics are necessary for the most successful leaders using emotional intelligence and personality type.

Primary Capability Covered: Emotional Intelligence & Decision Making
