Visionary Leadership: Fostering an Emotionally Excellent Workplace
Visionary Leadership understand that employees need to experience success in the workplace if their organisations are to be productive and competitive. Recent research has indicated that developing their emotional intelligence can help employees succeed in the workplace. Everyone wants to be successful in life. Success can be attained by some but for many others it is only an elusive dream.
It was widely held that one’s success in life is measured by one’s Intelligence Quotient or IQ. But in recent times, it has been proven that Emotional Intelligence (EI) is also an important determinant.
EI is often defined as comprising two components: intrapersonal skills (or self awareness) and interpersonal skills (the ability to relate well with others).
Studies have shown that people with high EI are often the most successful in their personal lives as well as in their careers.
Thus, knowing how to develop your visionary leadership and EI to an optimum can help you succeed in the workplace. However, merely being knowledgeable about EI does not enable an individual to be emotionally intelligent.
I have discovered that people are not able to be emotionally intelligent because they are not motivated. At the core of the motivation problem is our heart or, more specifically, our spiritual heart.
In my research on visionary leaders over the last two decades, I have found that in order to be consistently emotionally intelligent, an individual need to develop Emotional Excellence (EE), which is the heart motivation. Leaders who are emotionally excellent will be able to help their organisation to connect with its most important asset — people. When this special connection exists, the leaders will be able to lead others with their hearts.
Employees working under these leaders are inspired to give their best, to work from their hearts, and to channel their creative energies to produce an emotionally intelligent organisation.
In this Euromatech training course I will teach you how to develop emotional excellence by using the Leonard Personality Inventory (LPI) Model.
The LPI will help you to gain insights into your own personality and the behaviour of others. Knowing how people tend to behave is very important to understanding them and to your interactions with them.
In fact, Leonard is derived from the acronym Let’s Explore our personality based on Openness, Neutral, Analytical, Relational and Decisive behavioural tendencies in people.
Understanding our personality is crucial to knowing our strengths and weaknesses and developing our emotional excellence.
