Event overview

Learn more about our team

Effective leadership goes far beyond possessing the technical and task-oriented skills to manage a team. Today's most effective leaders are those who have a high level of awareness and control over their emotions, and use their emotions to connect with others, develop positive relationships, and motivate their teams.

This leadership skill is known as emotional intelligence, and it is an essential element of personal and professional success, especially in high-stress environment

Recent research reveals that emotional intelligence (EQ) might be offered as an explanation for why some practitioners and organizations are better at delivering patient-centered care. EQ has been shown to positively contribute to the provider-patient relationship, increased empathy, teamwork, communication, stress management, organizational commitment, physician and nurse career satisfaction, and effective leadership. Several dozen nursing research studies demonstrate a correlation between EQ and performance of nurses, retention, stress adaptation, organizational citizenship and selected positive patient clinical outcomes.

This program is designed to provide you with the knowledge and tools to develop your emotional intelligence. You’ll learn how to avoid self-sabotaging outcomes by altering how you perceive and respond to emotionally-charged situations. In addition, you’ll improve your ability to resolve conflict constructively, create a productive work environment, build and mend relationships, and bounce back from setbacks and disappointment.

Why IS Emotional Intelligence Important?

Numerous studies have shown a connection between emotional intelligence and positive workplace outcomes. Emotional intelligence has been linked to greater employee engagement and productivity, higher customer ratings, greater profitability, improved quality, lower turnover, and fewer safety incidents.

A 2015 Gallup study published in Business Journal found: 

  • Employees who had managers with a high EQ (Emotional Intelligence measurement) were 4 times less likely to leave.

  • 70% of an employee’s view of their company is tied directly to their level of Emotional Intelligence.

  • 69% of the employees who reported high engagement had managers who had high levels of emotional intelligence.

In a case study by a Fortune 500 company, manufacturing supervisors were given training and coaching in Emotional Intelligence. The results were:

  • Lost time accidentals were cut in half.

  • Formal grievances by unionized workforce dropped by 20%.

  • Plant productivity revenues exceeded projected targets by an average of $250,000.
