July 08, 2013 - Emotional Intelligence and Resilience with Becky Gorman

Becky GormanEmotional Intelligence and resilience are twin dancers --- and beautifully so. They are so intricately connected that it's impossible to separate them. Not only do we experience this in our own lives, we also are aware of it in the dynamics in all of our interactions and relationships.

Stress is with us. It's not going anywhere, and in fact, it's most likely going to increase. Taking care of ourselves is highly challenged daily! We're all split in many directions with lots of pressure to keep up the pace. In order to meet life in a growthful and balanced way, self-awareness and self-care is critical to building our resilience. Likewise, greater resilience supports ongoing deeper self-awareness and raises our level of emotional intelligence - a win-win.

As practitioners, commitment to our own level of intelligence, personal growth, and self-care is fundamental to providing the highest level of presence and quality of coaching to our clients. This dedication is a life-long pursuit.

In our conversation, we'll explore how building resilience walks hand-in-hand with emotional intelligence to support us as practitioners in living a balanced life personally, to manage our full lives, and to be living examples of the pathway of resilience for our clients. Please join us to receive some tools and tips for getting started and moving forward!

May 20, 2013 - Creativity and Emotional Intelligence: The Synergy Sisters with Fred Mandell

FredMandellSelfPortrait370At its core Emotional Intelligence is about self awareness and what one does with that self awareness. At its core Creativity is about "seeing in new and fresh ways" and what one does with that fresh perspective. But there is much, much more to appreciating the synergies between creativity and Emotional Intelligence and how that synergy can transform individuals, leaders and organizations.

During this Crescendo Connect Conversation, Fred Mandell - artist, writer, and leadership provocateur, will share his research based on his book Becoming a Life Change Artist; 7 Creative Skills to Reinvent Yourself at Any Stage of Life which he co-authored with Kathy Jordan, as well as, his work related to developing 21st century leaders.

March 25, 2013 - EQ-i2.0 Leadership Report with Lisa Griebel and Carrie Kolbin

Emotional Intelligence has long been recognized as a key predictor of leadership success. Since 1997, consultants worldwide have used the EQ-i to support leadership development. In January 2013, MHS released, the EQ-i2.0 LEADERSHIP Report.

This report examines EQ-i2.0 results through four key dimensions of leadership: authenticity, coaching, insight, and innovation. Certified EI Practitioners may now compare their client results against those of top leaders, thereby creating a coaching benchmark for exceptional EI performance. The LEADERSHIP Report identifies potential leadership derailers, provides insights on the leadership and organizational implications of client results, as well as strategies for development designed to help leaders achieve their true potential.

In this Crescendo Connect Conversation, we answer the following questions:

  • What is the EQ-i2.0 Leadership Report?
  • How was it developed?
  • What are the key features and benefits of the report?
  • How can it be used?
