Inspiring Engagement and Change: Creating a Culture of Coaching and Development

Using Emotional Intelligence and Coaching with Compassion to Change the Way We Work

(Formerly “Boyatzis on Leadership, Resonance, and Renewal”)

If we want dynamic organizations, we have to create a culture of development to complement a culture of performance, results or service. Developing individuals is not enough to change organizations. Goals, strategies, and leaders come and go, but culture lasts for decades (or longer). To inspire customer service and innovation, motivate high engagement and retention, we are challenged to create a culture (i.e. norms and values) of development.

Culture change starts with changing behavior. If coaching becomes a norm in all relationships, the character of an organization changes for the better. It starts with people changing how they act. Then leaders at all levels model the desired behavior. When leaders build resonant relationships, the positive emotional contagion spreads to others. But to build and maintain, you must have a balance of renewal to the barrage of annoying or acute stress that arrives each day.

Dr. Boyatzis is a Distinguished University Professor and a Professor in the Departments of Psychology, Cognitive Science and Organizational Behavior at Case Western Reserve University. He is an extensive researcher and author. Using insights from the latest research, he will explore the link between emotional intelligence and resonant leadership, the underlying psychological and physiological processes that impact performance, and how to create and nurture relationships of deep emotional connection that inspire and sustain us as leaders. Through exercises and discussion, this program will help you advance your development as a leader, and how to develop others and a culture of development.
