Leadership Coaching

It’s Personal

It begins and ends with your development. There is no simple formula for leadership to your organisation. What matters is your Emotional Intelligence and your abilities to manage Team Dynamics. Your  effectiveness in these areas depends on understanding your own patterns of functioning the good and not so helpful and learning more about how people in groups function together. To do so takes concentrated effort and help to build your insights.

It’s Influential

Great leaders LIFT YOU UP, they engage your emotions and capacity to see the difference you are making, they also LIFT YOU UP and carry you through the tough times.

Influential leadership is the ability to bring along the people with you who don’t have the skills to see the need for change or possibilities that can happen. It is the ability to motivate others, when the daily grind makes us lose touch of what is important and why we are doing what we are doing.

EQi BROCHURE

Why Emotional Intelligence Matters

When psychologists first began to think about intelligence they focused only on the cognitive (thinking) aspects such as memory and visual-spatial problem-solving skills and the notion of IQ was born . Today we have a deeper understanding of human intelligence and what it takes to be successful in life at work and home.

We now understand success in life requires social and emotional intelligence we now simply refer to as Emotional Intelligence or EI.

WHAT IS EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE?

Whilst the term itself is only about 30 years old, the human capability is nothing new. We have always honoured this type of intelligence, but the semantics have changed. The old (now unfashionable) word for EI was simply WISDOM, a word that really deserves to be revived to understand what it takes to be successful in life.

EI (or Wisdom) is composed from many different threads of human intelligence including social and emotional intelligences like:
  • Emotional Self-Awareness: Insight into yourself
  • Emotional Expression: How you show yourself to others
  • Empathy: Your Insight into other
  • Decision Making: How avoidant, objective, and impulsive you are in making decisions.
  • Resilience: How adaptable you are in the face of life’s challenges, and how well you tolerate stress (calmness) and remain hopeful and humorous yet realistic about the challenges life will throw. (optimism).
Like Wisdom, EI includes,
  • Self-Acceptance: Making peace with the often wide gap between your real self and ideal self. Recognising our flaws are what makes us human and not to be ashamed of.
  • Gratitude: The wise recognise nothing stays the same and much can go wrong so they are keenly aware of life’s simpler pleasures and moments of happiness, beauty and calmness.
  • Forgiveness: and be slow to anger and not jump to negative conclusions, realising most hurt is unintentional
  • To not have regrets (the wise realise no-one can pull off a perfect life)
  • Realism: Recognising how difficult It is to change other people and their views.
MEASURING EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE FOR LEADERSHIP

The EQ-i2.0 is the first empirically evaluated measure of Emotional Intelligence in the world. It continues to be one of the only scientifically validated emotional intelligence tools. Its extensive usage means we know quite a bit about its reliability and its convergent and discriminant validity. Internationally it has been used with big names such as the U.S. Air Force, New Zealand Telecom and American Express.

The EQ-i 360 provides a more in-depth analysis by having those who work with the person being assessed provide information as well. When observer ratings are compared with the results of an EQ-i 2.0 self-report a more detailed profile emerges.
