Leadership and Motivation

Much of my course delivery is on and around the elements of leadership and motivation. These apply not only to the workplace but also to every aspect of life we as individuals are engaged in where we have to encourage, guide and lead others (individuals and/or teams).

The start point is understanding ourselves and increasing or developing our own self-awareness. The terminology often used for this is 'Emotional Intelligence'.

What is Emotional Intelligence?

EI is the ability to recognise and understand emotions in yourself and others, and your ability to use this awareness to manage behaviour which influences our relationships. It is the “something” in each of us that is a bit intangible. It affects how we manage behaviour, navigate social complexities, and make personal decisions that achieve positive results.

Emotional intelligence taps into a fundamental element of human behaviour that is distinct from your intellect. There is no known connection between IQ (Intelligence Quotient) and EQ (Emotional Quotient); you can’t predict EQ based on how smart someone is.

Your IQ is not flexible - it is fixed from birth. You don’t get smarter by learning new facts or information. Intelligence is your ability to learn, and it’s the same at 15 as it is at 50.

EQ, on the other hand, is a flexible skill that can be learned. While it is true that some people are naturally more emotionally intelligent than others, a high EQ can be developed even if you aren’t born with it.

"Emotional Quotient is so critical to success that it accounts for 58% of performance in all types of jobs." says Travis Bradberry on www.forbes.com

What do I do?

I work with people and teams who want to develop their EQ to enhance their own performance and that of the teams they lead. The result being that your own, your team and your businesses performance will improve. The degree to which it will change will depend on the commitment of each individual and each team.

Courses can be selected from a range of off the shelf packages I deliver to a tailored package for your team.

These include:

  • Leadership and Motivation for newly appointed managers
  • Leadership and Motivation for Managers in appointment for 1 year or more
  • Advanced Leadership and Motivation Development
  • Emotional Intelligence and how your career can benefit
  • Leaders - Coaching your Team

Do people follow you?

“You can be appointed as a manager, but you aren’t a leader till people choose to follow you.” John Adair

It is worth asking yourself do people follow you and if not, why not?
