Leading Yourself: Learning to Increase Your Emotional Intelligence
Self-awareness is our superpower as leaders. To effectively lead others, we must first learn to lead ourselves, and we do this by deepening our self-awareness. Without self-awareness, we live reacting... reacting to things other people do or say, to things beyond our control, and in ways that are not congruent with our values or how we want to come across. A lack of self-awareness leads to disconnection from self and unproductive leadership. Self-aware leaders understand what they are thinking, how they are feeling, and can effectively communicate and respond in any situation. In this live webinar, Licensed Counselor and Speaker Mazi Robinson will discuss strategies for increasing our self awareness, emotional intelligence, and empathetic leadership skills so that we can more effectively lead ourselves and others.
1. Understand the benefit of practicing personal curiosity as a tool for gathering data and emotion regulation
2. Identify and name feelings they are experiencing
3. Understand the connection between thoughts, feelings, and behaviors
4. Identify automatic thoughts that lead to unproductive reactions
5. Define the difference between a productive and unproductive reaction
