To effectively address the various opportunities, pressures, and stresses that can so easily emerge and overtake people in health care organizations, leaders must learn to recognize, motivate, and effectively manage their own and others’ emotions.  In today’s complex health care organizations, leaders are charged with igniting the positive emotions of their people and countering unproductive spirals.  In this program, participants learn the concept of emotional intelligence (EI), its component competencies, and how to use EI to stimulate outstanding performance in health care settings.  The class also offers techniques for leaders serving as coaches to help others develop EI competencies. 

The goal of the program is to equip women in health care fields with a deeper understanding of how leadership is embedded in relationships and how positive emotions spark and fuel the most productive relationships.
