Emotionally Intelligent Teams
In partnership with EI World, Weatherhead Executive Education's Team Coaching Process utilizes the Team Emotional Intelligence Survey, developed by Vanessa Druskat, PhD and Steven B. Wolff, PhD. The survey enables a team to evaluate where they are, and then work systematically to develop the behaviors proven to support the team's functioning at the highest level. It is the only assessment grounded on 25 years of research by experts in team emotional intelligence.
Is it possible to create emotionally intelligent teams?
"In their landmark research findings published in "Building the Emotional Intelligence of Groups", Vanessa Urch Druskat and Steven B. Wolff assert that emotional intelligence underlies the effective processes of successful teams and that such resulting processes cannot be imitated; they must originate from genuine emotional intelligence at the team level.
While creating successful teams isn't as simple as mimicking the processes of emotionally intelligent groups of people, what you can do is create the necessary conditions in which team members can develop their emotional intelligence. Those three conditions are: trust among members, a sense of group identity and a sense of group efficacy."
