The Emotionally Intelligent Leader

Displaying Understanding, Executive Presence and Influence

Course Introduction

This Oxford Management Centre online training programme on Emotionally Intelligent Leader will be of great value if, as a leader, manager, or supervisor, you aspire to outstanding performance. With the fact that many employees are now working virtually, employees are wanting more support from their managers and leaders in order to feel engaged and part of a team. This online training programme provides you with practical techniques based on leading edge research on how to display emotional intelligence, strongly influence, effectively motivate others, and show executive presence.

Daniel Goleman, the foremost authority on Emotional Intelligence (EI) and professor of psychology at Harvard University, asserts that “For leadership positions, Emotional Intelligence competencies account for up to 87.5% of what sets outstanding managers apart from the average”. At its most basic level, EI is the capacity for recognising feelings and emotions in yourself and others, for managing and utilising them and consistently motivating yourself and others to achieve your strategic goals. At an organisational level, it is about optimising communication and collaboration within teams and departments.

At a personal level, EI will help you to cope with your workload, manage stress, function in increasingly complex business environments and balance these with the demands of your personal life. Indeed, research shows that if you demonstrate a high level of EI you will be better able to manage such demands, realise your career aspirations and fully utilise your knowledge, experience, and potential.

This online training programme, consequently, has been designed to address this vital skill set using Daniel Goleman’s powerful and pragmatic five-base model of EI.
