Here are the program descriptions and learning objectives:

Leading with Emotional Intelligence

Technical competence is only half the picture in the current business landscape. Employers want professionals who possess high Emotional Intelligence, or EQ, which is an array of social competencies that determine how we relate to ourselves and others and how we deal with the demands and pressures of our work and family lives. Unlike IQ, which is "hard wired" and predominantly hereditary, EQ can be learned, developed, and enhanced. All of us are deficient in some domain of EQ, but we can work to improve. This program includes a free EQ assessment and the exploration of several tools to help you improve in the domains of self-awareness and relationship management.

Learning Objectives

  • Assess your own emotional intelligence using a scientific inventory
  • Enhance your self-awareness and relationship management skills through the application of several reflection techniques
  • Utilize active listening skills to foster “other awareness”
  • Diagnose team, unit, and organizational EQ

Overcoming Resistance to Change

Organizational change is a process in which an organization optimizes performance as it works toward its ideal state, as a reaction to an ever-changing environment, or as a response to a crisis. Unfortunately, many people resist change because they fear the impact it will have on them or because they are not convinced of its merits.

In this program, we explore the critically important change framework of tasks, relationships, and identities. We also examine how to have effective change management conversations and how to diagnose whether resistance to change is caused by thoughts, fears, or skill capacity.

Learning Objectives

  • Understand why many people resist change
  • Apply the task-relationship-identity diagnostic framework for determining types of change
  • Utilize tools and principles to foster effective change conversations
  • Apply the thought-, fear-, and capacity-based model to guide optimal interventions in change management
