Site Program Title: Is Emotional Intelligence Core to Your Organization’s Leadership Development?

SHRM Credits: This program is valid for 1.5 PDCs for the SHRM-CPSM or SHRM-SCPSM

Description: A 2013 survey conducted by Multi-Health Systems and the Human Capital Institute discovered that organizations who spend 31% or more of their training and development budget on leadership development are 12% more likely to report positive revenue growth.

The survey also discovered that many employees are dissatisfied with current organizational efforts towards leadership development. The training methods used most frequently were not in alignment with those found to be most effective. For example, workshops were used 80% of the time and only found to be 39% effective. Emotional Intelligence (EI) assessments were 60% effective but only used 37% of the time.

The most effective leadership development methods were in order: Emotional Intelligence Assessments (60%), Executive Coaching (60%), Global Assignments (59%) and Formal Mentoring Programs (58%).

Organizations that take steps the necessary steps to measure and track EI are 16% more likely to show positive revenue growth than organizations who value EI but don’t measure it.

Is Emotional Intelligence Core to Your Organization’s Leadership Development?

Presenter: Gale Mote is a certified coach and facilitator for EQ-I 2.0®, a psychometric assessment which measures emotional intelligence and how it can impact people in the workplace.

During this engaging and interactive session, she will make the connection between effective leadership development and Emotional Intelligence. EI is important because it can account for 25-30% of an individual’s success in any type of job. Further, the more someone progresses through the organizational hierarchy, the more important emotional skills become in their success. (Dulewicz and Higgs, 2003; Goleman et al., 2002.)

Learning Objectives:

  • Explain why Emotional Intelligence is core to leadership development
  • Examine how emotional intelligence skills positively correlate with successful leadership performance
  • Practice applying EI skills in leadership situations
  • Discuss options for developing leadership EI and measuring ROI
