LIVE FACILITATED PODCAST- Leading with Emotional Intelligence During a Pandemic
Date and Time
A session hosted by U of G Learning and Development.
For Senior Leaders, Chairs, Directors, and People Managers
There is no guidebook for the global trauma and the aftermath being brought on by the coronavirus pandemic. The heightened anxiety and uncertainty people are experiencing has created an even greater need for leaders to develop a deep understanding of their own and others’ emotional landscapes. In this session, we will listen to an episode of Brené Brown’s podcast “Unlocking Us” in which she interviews Dr. Marc Brackett about his latest book “Permission to Feel.” While you may or may not see it as part of your job to attend to the feelings of your team members, consider the biggest struggles you usually face and your biggest time sucks; most likely, these relate to dealing with problematic behaviours, whether that’s resistance to change, uncivil behaviour, ineffective teamwork, uninspiring leadership, etc. The challenge is, we focus on the wrong thing in these situations. This podcast provides invaluable and practical strategies you can use to develop your emotional intelligence so that you can lead yourself and others through these challenging times, and beyond.
Following the podcast, we will engage in an interactive discussion with your fellow peer leaders which will provide you with an opportunity to reflect and generate ideas that you can immediately apply to your day-to-day leadership practice.
