Our One-Day Retreat will focus on identifying the implications one’s emotional intelligence has on their leadership capabilities and drive participants to plan and commit to change to benefit their personal and professional development. Scroll down to read more!
Our One-Day Retreat is a comprehensive program aimed at introducing leaders to emotional intelligence and kickstarting their understanding of how their EQ impacts them on a personal and professional level.
This program is split into two parts: first, participants will complete an EQ assessment to determine their individual strengths and development opportunities. We use the EQ-i 2.0® which is a self-report assessment tool that is based on the 15 competencies of the Emotional Quotient Inventory (hence, EQ-i®).
Not only does the EQ-i 2.0® score participants total EQ, but it also scores them on each of the 15 competencies, highlighting strengths and potential for improvement. After completing their assessment, participants will receive a one-hour debrief of their results via phone or video conference with a certified EQ expert.
Part two of the program is the One-Day Retreat group training session. This session has been developed to build emotional intelligence skills in each participant while providing an opportunity for the group to learn, grow and develop together as a team. This session will consist of two training modules:
Leadership Implications of EQ Competencies
Module one will introduce emotional intelligence and analyze the impact EQ strengths and development areas can have on the organization. Participants will gain an understanding of emotional intelligence, its benefits, and how it plays a role in leadership effectiveness. Leaders will also be introduced to the dark side of emotional intelligence and learn how to recognize how a high EQ might not always be a good thing. This session will also dive deep into the strengths and development opportunities of each individual as well as the leadership team as a whole, and address the organizational implications of these results.
- Gain a comprehensive understanding of the EQ model and the five composite scales within it.
- Understand the benefits of emotional intelligence and how it plays a role in leadership effectiveness.
- Recognize the implications of the dark side of emotional intelligence.
PLANNING AND IMPLEMENTING CHANGE
Module two will dive further into the emotional intelligence competencies and provide an opportunity for participants to play the role of competency advisor. The group will analyze and discuss ways to improve upon these competencies while leveraging their strengths.
The learning will be framed around embracing the change required to integrate emotional intelligence into their personal and professional effectiveness. The team will learn how to plan and implement change, as well as set up a detailed action plan for success.
- Gain a strong knowledge of the 15 EQ-i competencies and the competency advisors within the team.
- Explore and understand the stages of change.
- Generate an action plan for EQ development based on the participant’s development areas, as well as those acknowledged on a team level.

“Of all of the training that I have attended over the past 30 some years, this one stands out in that it really helped me drill down on the emotions that drive my behaviours and certainly helped me identify the triggers that spark negative impact on my team.”
