In the context of a global crisis we have looked to leaders who can couple their requisite industry knowledge with attributes of exceptional self-control and poise.
In a recent IEDP webinar, we welcomed emotional intelligence expert and Adjunct Professor at Vanderbilt University, Shayna Humphrey to unpack these intrapersonal attributes—that are born of high emotional intelligence, and which enable leaders to steady their teams, motivate high performance, and deliver meaningful results, even under trying conditions.
Given the need for highly emotionally intelligent leaders in this unprecedented time, this webinar targeted the development of specific, self-management skills to help executives:
- Navigate uncertainty,
- Manage emotional reactivity, and,
- Reduce the negative consequences of significant levels of stress.
Armed with the skills of self-awareness and self-regulation, executive leaders can strengthen the resilience and composure needed to effectively manage themselves so that they may lead others well in the face of challenging and changing circumstances.
