Lead, Empower and Thrive with EI

Designed specifically for leaders, this program is built upon critical emotionally intelligent behaviors and social neuroscience research that will boost leadership skills that are essential to business success.

During six highly interactive and impactful instructor-led learning modules, leaders learn to improve how they connect, communicate and influence others, in turn enhancing leadership ability, talent retention and engagement. Leaders are better able to empathize and think strategically. Personal relationships and well-being are also enhanced creating impact both inside and outside of the workplace.

Research shows that people perform their best when they feel valued, cared for, consulted, respected, informed and understood. Emotionally intelligent leaders are adept at motivating others, connecting, empathizing, and building employee engagement in both virtual and in-person work environments.
