Whether you are a new or experienced leader, Heart and Science of Leadership for Women will offer you a unique opportunity to explore and develop your emotional intelligence and leadership skills.

Calgary, March 13-15 2019

Leading with emotional intelligence

Enhancing EI skills can have a transformative impact on you as a leader – and can transform your other life roles as well. Using your comprehensive EQ-i 2.0 leadership report as a guide, you will learn about critical emotional intelligence skills such as self-regard, assertiveness, stress tolerance, and problem solving and how these correlate with 4 dimensions of leadership. You will gain insights into your EI leadership strengths and challenges and you will leave the course with innovative tools, best practices in leadership and a concrete action plan to ensure sustainable development.

Becoming an exceptional leader

The women who join our course have one thing in common – they want to become exceptional leaders. They want to handle challenging leadership situations with integrity and have relationships built on authenticity. They want their personal values to be aligned with the values and mission of their organizational culture. And they want their work and life to be integrated and balanced.

Do you feel like you are juggling multiple roles, responsibilities and expectations at work and in other areas of your life? Are you challenged by leading your team and influencing your organizational culture while remaining connected to your family and community? You are not alone.
