This learning event is right for you if you are a leader interested in increasing your impact and influence through application of emotional intelligence skills and behaviours


Emotional intelligence leadership is a unique offering from Independent Schools Victoria and Swinburne University of Technology.  

There is a wealth of literature detailing the impact emotion has on an individual’s performance. This research has shown, for example, that people perform their best at work when they feel involved in purposeful work that develops who they are, when they feel valued, cared for, consulted, respected, informed and understood. This research has also shown that people often perform their worst when they feel unproductive feelings, such as feeling overly worried, frustrated, concerned, stressed, inadequate and fearful.

This is a two-day, practical and skills-based program designed to improve a leader’s emotional intelligence skills and create positive workplace environments. The program is designed to support leaders to increase their impact, effectiveness and resilience, be better equipped to resolve workplace conflict and create a more energised and engaged workforce.

Emotional intelligence is widely recognised as a valuable skill that helps improve communication, management, problem-solving and relationships within the workplace.
