PDP: Influencing with Emotional Intelligence / Coaching

The 1st part of the course focuses on the importance of using Emotional Intelligence (EI) for increasing the performance in leadership positions. Any leader influences the team, but a good leader is only the one who leads with emotions, that is the one who can use his/her emotional intelligence (EI) to better understand and manage his/her collaborators and their work. There is increasing awareness that EI is the key competence for current leadership roles. In this module, we will develop an original way of thinking about emotions, discuss concrete examples, and introduce strategies to understand and manage other people’s emotions - strategies that can be readily used in daily managerial job.

The 2nd part of the module is an introduction to the topic of coaching and how this skill can support you when leading and inspiring people and teams. In today’s organizations, leadership has many different facets:  anyone can lead at any hierarchical level. Organizational success is built around highly empowered teams and driven by a new model of leadership. Leaders as well as organizations need to move away from command, control and the traditional leadership models that have worked in the past (Deloitte, 2016). To support you in tackling these challenges, our course helps you to develop a collaborative leadership approach based on coaching skills.
