EI for Leaders Course
Mindfulness Based Emotional Intelligence
“The mood and style of a leader is contagious in an organizational system, and the leader’s degree of emotional intelligence can make or break an organization’s effectiveness.”
— Daniel Goleman, Primal Leadership

It provides leaders a place to assess the EI competencies you need for greater success in managing all of the many challenges you face, learn tools to develop new behaviors, and gain support from other senior leaders. Specifically participants get:
1. Grounding in the framework of EI and its benefit.
2. Introduction to and practice of mindfulness

The EI for Leaders course includes mindfulness training. What is mindfulness? It’s being present without judgment to what is happening in the moment and is a critical practice for the development of emotional intelligence. The book Search Inside Yourself by Chade-Meng Tan describes components of an eight week course teaching mindfulness and emotional intelligence at Google. The book is used as a primary resource in the course.
EI for Leaders is offered exclusively by insideoutcomes once a year through open enrollment.

A change that our clients felt almost immediately!
