Prioritizing your holistic growth and development through training workshops increases the ROI of your professional development investment. As a former Associate Director and now an entrepreneur, I understand deeply the need and desire to invest in our own development and/or the development of our team. I want to offer this public duo of workshops as I know  it is not always realistic to bring a trainer in-house to a small biz,  small team, and if you are an entrepreneur or solopreneur these things generally are not always an option, so here we go!! An opportunity for us to work  together and create a learning opportunity to get in Positive, Forward  Motion! 

Our energy is our currency, our emotional and behavioural self-management is our brand, personally and professionally. To know ourselves and to hold up a mirror to our strengths, competencies, blind-spots and triggers, as leaders of ourselves, and in the lives of others, is an  investment in our professional development and in the organizations,  businesses and clients we serve. 

Learning a framework to manage and foster healthy, and positive Emotional Energy and Emotional Intelligence, in the FAST Lane© is a key and defining element of our individual and collective Professional Acumen, and highly worth the investment of our time and resources.

Join in for the first afternoon workshop (Feb 26th 2020 1-4pm) about  understanding and managing your emotional energy through the Energy  Leadership Index, the second day (Feb 27th, 2020 9-4:30 pm) as we dig  into our effectiveness an Emotionally Effective Leader through the  Emotional Intelligence framework OR take advantage of this unique  combination of workshops to understand, identify, leverage and action  the ELI and EQ-i frameworks for personal and professional success!

Self Awareness and Self Management in Life and in the Workplace - Understanding our hot button triggers and how to manage them in the workplace

Your  energy is your currency, personally and professionally. It is  introducing you, and driving your professional effectiveness, before you  ever say a word. 

Do you know what is yours saying? 

As  the leader of your life, and, formally or informally, a leader in the lives of those around you, your actions and behaviours hold the key to your personal, interpersonal and professional success. Through this workshop you will understand how something as seemingly innocuous as ‘energy’ can fundamentally define how others view you, how interpersonally influential you are, and gain tools to help you manage and cultivate it. Utilizing the E-Index, you will assess and evaluate where your catabolic and anabolic (~positive and negative) energy is  (level 1-7), explore what, consciously and unconsciously, triggers your emotions and energy, and create concrete and applied POSITIVE FORWARD MOTION development goals to address and increase your Emotional energy management and Emotional Intelligence.

The  ELI helps to identify and understand emotional and behavioural blind  spots and triggers, and EI provides a framework and 'roadmap' to target  developmental areas. 

Workshop Goal 

The highly interactive and dynamic workshop is ideal as a stand alone, in  conjunction with the Introduction to Emotional Intelligence for the  Workplace Workshop, or as part of an existing organizational leadership  development program and can be tailored to meet your specific goals. 

With  a foundation of Emotional self awareness, self management, and focus on  the Energy of Leadership Index, in this workshop participants will dig  in to learn the Energy Leadership Index framework in order to support  themselves to understand and manage their emotional energy and  behaviour, as professionals. 

In this workshop participants will achieve an understanding of how  emotions shape who we are, how we relate to others. How to improve  personal, interpersonal and professional relationships through emotional  self-management and self-awareness. 

Participants will leave with tools necessary to identify and uncover their triggers, where their unconscious energy lays, what the EL Index is, and most impactfully, how to use this framework and model to positively influence  your Energy as a professional.

Workshop Outcomes 

By the end of this workshop, participants will: 

  • Enhance our anabolic Energy by increasing our capacity to understand, manage and regulate emotions and behaviours under stress
  • Understand the Energy Leadership Index Assessment Framework, and how to apply it. 
  • Be introduced to Emotional Intelligence at a high level
  • Explore the role of mindfulness in managing highly charged situations
  • Understand how emotions, triggers and behaviours (blind spots) impact our professional influence and ability to collaborate
  • Explore individual energy index levels and indicators under normal  conditions and in the *FAST lane (*Frustrations, Assumptions,  Stressors, Triggers)
  • Enhance self-awareness
  • Understand the consequences of your conscious and unconscious emotional energy on your life, professionalism and Team

The Emotionally Effective Leader - Emotional Intelligence for Leaders - Full Day Workshop

If  your emotional abilities aren’t in hand, if you don’t have self-awareness, if you are not able to manage your distressing emotions, if you can’t have empathy and have effective relationships, then no matter how smart you are, you are not going to get very far.
