This session will cover the competency of Social Intelligence.
Social Intelligence: capacity for recognizing our own feelings and those of others, for motivating ourselves and for managing emotions effectively in ourselves and others especially in social interactions.
Emotional Intelligence: the capacity to be aware of, control, and express one’s emotions, and to handle interpersonal relationships judiciously and empathetically.
Understanding Social and Emotional Intelligence is an important component of leadership. How we lead is directly correlated to how well we understand our own capacities and our ability to handle interpersonal relationships. In this workshop, participants will learn about social and emotional intelligence, what each means and how they apply to leadership. Through self- reflection, each leader will explore his/her own ability to manage emotions and relate socially. Participants will work through exercises to enhance the skills need to read and understand situations and people, connect with others, and respond in socially/emotionally intelligent ways.
