Module 4: The Coaching Leader
November 1st

Coaching has been defined as “…unlocking people’s potential to maximize their own performance. It is helping them to learn rather than teaching them”. Busy leaders don’t necessarily have the time to qualify as coaches; but they can learn to support their team members using a coaching style – by having coaching-style conversations.

Learn and practice a unique model for leaders, the G.R.E.A.T. model, for having more focused and productive conversations with their people. Immediately begin to handle interactions with your team in a much more structured and productive way.

Module 5: The Resilient Leader

The feedback received from all that attended mirrored my own opinion, the session was fantastic.  The way you deliver is very thought provoking, educational, interactive and most of all inclusive and fun.  “The way you show up” is now very consciously in everyone’s mind and the influence that has on one’s own self and those around them

Attendee on Leading with EI

As a recent participant in the six-part LWEI course offered by Pinpointing Potential, I would highly recommend it. It has helped me become a more confident leader by better understanding myself and those around me. The course has provided me with the skills to communicate more authentically, influence others and manage conflict constructively.

I cannot recommend the Leading With Emotional Intelligence Programme highly enough to anyone looking to enhance their emotional intelligence within their leadership capacities and their personal lives. The content is extensive, interesting and relevant and Ciara is passionate, energetic and knowledgeable. She delivers every single module with boundless energy and enthusiasm and I leave every time motivated, inspired and wanting to learn more.

Leading with EI Attendee

As someone who has worked in a very people driven industry for a long time, I thought I was reasonably clued up on emotional intelligence. It turns out there is so much more to learn! Through virtually attending the Leading with Emotional Intelligence course, I have had the opportunity for self-reflection, group interaction, and a much deeper understanding of the impact of emotional humility both in the work place and in my personal life. I genuinely cannot recommend this course highly enough for anyone looking to take their leadership skills to the next level.

The Leading with Emotional Intelligence Programme was a wonderful learning tool and I value and respect your knowledge and information. I really enjoyed this course and I can tell you were extremely passionate with sharing knowledge and additional supporting material after each module. Within the last few weeks I can see a difference in my personal and professional relationships as I’ve applied various techniques that I have learned throughout this course. I definitely will recommend this course to others. Continue shining and sharing, this is extremely beneficial.
