Leadership through Emotional Intelligence

Great leaders move us by tapping into a basic human characteristic—our emotions. Research has shown that exceptional leaders, executives, and managers are not just smart or lucky, but more frequently rely on their emotional intelligence. Emotional intelligence is the ability to understand, motivate, and develop yourself and others. Most importantly, emotional intelligence competencies can be taught and learned.

Under the direction of internationally known expert Richard Boyatzis, Ph.D., these high-impact learning experiences provide a comprehensive understanding of emotional intelligence (EI). Take an individual class, or earn the Emotionally Intelligent Leader Certificate or one of our Weatherhead Coaching Certificates.

*New for Spring 2022.
