OVERVIEW OF PROGRAM
In our EQ Leadership Training program, participants will learn how to understand and enhance their emotional intelligence and apply proven strategies to become more authentic, influential, innovative, inspirational leaders and mentors in their organizations.
This training program is broken into two distinct segments:
- Introduction to Emotional Intelligence
- Impact of Emotional Intelligence on Leadership
- Strategies to Improve Emotional Intelligence
- Leading Teams with Emotional Intelligence
- Emotional Intelligence and Success in the Workplace
Before any leader can have a significant impact on the organization, they need to understand their strengths and development areas, recognize the impact emotional intelligence has on leadership, and apply strategies to improve and practice these skills. After gaining understanding and competency of one’s capabilities, they will have the skills and knowledge available to them to serve their organization best, lead their teams, and drive business growth.
30 hours of instructional time over five modules.
Each module can be delivered either live or virtually. We focus on creating engaging, experiential training programs, whether it is face-to-face or screen-to-screen.
This program consists of 30 hours of instructional time over five modules. Each module is six hours in length, including breaks. It is recommended that the following modules take place within one or two months of each other.
For optimal engagement, the ideal room set-up would be to have participants seated in groups of 4-6 at tables. The workshop sessions will include a workbook for participants to follow along with and write in.
Every learning experience includes a mixture of peer-to-peer discussions, group debriefs, reflections, case studies, exercises, activities, role plays, videos and games. During each session, participants will walk through the various competencies discussed in the program while ensuring adequate time to practice and apply what they have learned.
During these challenging times of office closures, social-distancing, international travel restrictions and budget cuts, virtual events are a compelling, safe, inviting and economic alternative. Virtual modules are best facilitated synchronously (in real-time), where participants will come together at a specific time.
As a virtual program, each module will be split into two three-hour sessions. We recommend that the two sessions, which account for one module, happen over two consecutive weeks. The ideal timing between modules is between one to two months.
During each session, participants will come together to listen to the presentation, work in small breakout rooms, participate in polls, complete reflection questions and activities, and engage in group discussions through a remote learning environment. The workshop sessions will include an e-workbook for participants to follow along with and write in. This delivery option is a great tool to bring remote teams together to learn and develop as a group.
Assessment will be rated using feedback sheets with the four levels of Kirkpatrick’s evaluation model:
- Reaction – How did the participants feel about the training? What was their response to the learning experience?
- Learning – To what extent did the participants improve knowledge, skills and attitude as a result of the program?
- Behaviour – To what extent can participants demonstrate the learning objectives and behaviour in the workplace as a result of the training?
- Results – What organizational benefits have resulted from the training program?
Each session will include a practical portion where learners will demonstrate their knowledge and competence of the key themes of the module. All trainees are expected to participate and complete the necessary exercises in class and pre- and post-work assignments.
