Developing Leadership with Emotional Intelligence
Presented: by Ed Hennessy

Come hear Emotional Intelligence (EI) expert, Ed Hennessy, explain how organizational leaders can be equipped to succeed by applying EI as a leadership development tool. Presenting with Ed will be Alyson Mattlage, a consultant with BNSF. She is part of a major roll out of an emotional intelligence program to 5,000 employees this year. Alyson is part of the team that evaluated available EI assessments in the market place, structured and built curriculum, and is currently facilitating the BNSF program.

Program Overview: Today's fast paced and complex environment requires leaders that can cope more easily in stressful situations, exude confidence, and operate in a flexible and optimistic way that resonates with their subordinates, peers, and superiors. In this presentation we'll begin with a look at the qualities and characteristics of effective leaders and the link to emotional intelligence. We'll review the evolution of emotional intelligence from concept to scientifically validated construct and how it fits into the leadership performance equation.

Most corporations use individual competency models as a framework for success within a specific role. Recently completed research gives us a direct link between skills in emotional intelligence and 4 leadership competencies that companies can use to build leaders. These competencies of Authenticity, Coaching, Insight, and Innovation will be defined and linked to specific combinations of EI skills supporting success in the competency. The nature of Emotional Intelligence is that it is dynamic and can be developed. The development ability of emotional intelligence allows us to cultivate a plan around specific skills supporting leadership competencies with the end result being empowered leaders and great effectiveness.
