Leading with Emotional Intelligence
June 25, 2020 - 11:00 am EST (Live Event)
We are seeing a phenomenon taking place with a shift in leadership style in many male dominated industries. This is causing an almost immediate demand for existing leaders to lead in new ways which may feel uncomfortable or awkward. For women who are leading, or looking to lead in their profession, this can create a complex environment among our peers. This shift is having a direct impact on attracting and retaining key employees. Leaders need to be authentic, transparent, and intentionally engaged with their people. In professions which have historically led in a completely opposite manner, this is an enormous challenge, especially if there are multiple generations in the workplace. This change is not only in demand for future leaders. Existing leaders who have historically led in their own “yester-year” style are being forced to make change, too. At the root of this is the introduction to leading with emotional intelligence. The phenomenon of leadership change we are seeing provides an opportunity for leaders to be more authentic and respected, and to be seen as a leader who others naturally want to follow.
