Lead, Empower and Thrive with Emotional Intelligence
Lead empower and thrive uses emotional intelligence to boost leadership soft skills that are essential to business success. Using practical tools and techniques, delivered either face-to-face or virtually in a learning journey format, this program helps leaders better connect and empathise, communicate, think strategically, build employee engagement and influence in virtual, and in person, working environments.
As Josh Bersin says in his HR Predictions for 2022 report, “Of all the learning and development issues companies face, one of the hottest of all is PowerSkills—teaching people how to lead, work in teams, collaborate, communicate, tell stories, and think strategically. We recognized that skills like empathy, forgiveness, humility, and awe were the most powerful and sustainable skills in business. While these kinds of “softer skills” were not widely discussed prior to the pandemic, we now know they are essential to success.”
If these are the type of issues your leaders face, Lead, empower and thrive with emotional intelligence is the perfect solution.
