Webinar Description: 

Emotional intelligence assists leaders to maximize their own success and support the success of those around them. Regulatory changes, resources constraints, and increasing demand for services are among the many factors that contribute to the increasing stress and uncertainty in the non-profit world. Leaders need equally impressive social and emotional skills to ignite their workforce and staff. Emotional intelligence competencies, such as impulse control, empathy, flexibility, self-awareness, and stress tolerance are what separate great leaders from good leaders. Presenters will discuss how to apply these skills in the daily management of a domestic violence/sexual assault organization.

As a result of this webinar, participants will be better able to:

  • Build trust and connect better with subordinates, peers, board members, and clients
  • Communicate more effectively
  • Lead their teams through high-intensity, high-stress situations
  • Manage change and transitions effectively
  • Recognize and embrace diversity & inclusion
