Emotional Intelligence for Leadership in Schools: The Nature of Great Leadership and Emotional Intelligence

Details

Emotional Intelligence (EI) is, in essence, the ability to understand your effect on others and to manage that, and yourself, accordingly. Daniel Goleman’s findings, back in 1998, indicated that EI contributes 80% to 90% of the competencies that distinguish outstanding leaders from average leaders. This Institute will invite you to question how much does EI play a part in your own life and, ultimately, success in your school? 

Our work-life is full of challenges and deadlines which we are expected to meet. Problems caused by pressure, communication and an unclear vision can significantly hold us back. In addition, colleagues that we work with may lack confidence, feel demotivated, and experience anxiety at times, and we may grow to anticipate and expect that this as ‘just part of life in a school’. 

But, as this one-day institute will make clear, it is Emotional Intelligence that can make a real difference to our daily lives and the level of success and enjoyment we experience. 

“By inspiring others, emotionally intelligent leaders can ignite passion in their teams which stimulates higher levels of employee engagement and improves results.” 

Who should attend? 

This Institute is for all educators looking to understand their emotional intelligence and, as a consequence, improve their personal performance, communication skills, negotiation skills and influence in their school. It will support: 

  • Those who are interested to know about what the latest research tells us is most important in determining our success

  • Teachers who are committed to becoming ever more effective 
  • Educators who want to be better communicators
