Do you show up as a creature of emotion or a creature of logic? Successful people understand their own feelings and the feelings of others around them. They manage their moods, put themselves in other people’s shoes and build rewarding relationships. 95% of us think we are emotionally intelligent like this, but less than 15% are. We expect our leaders to balance the ‘neural see-saw’ –with logic on one side and social skills, like empathy and intuition, on the other.

It’s easy to lead like-minded people, but what about people on a totally different wavelength? Can you control your instinctive fight, flight or freeze response with people that stress you out or annoy you? Soft skills like these can be hard to learn but they are career game changers. The good news is that high EQ isn’t just for superhumans. Boost yours with these practical techniques and frameworks and watch your relationships thrive.

Learning outcomes

This session will help you:

  • Improve your sensitivity to difficult people or those who think differently to you.
  • Have better emotional regulation and mood management, especially when under pressure.
  • Enhance your questioning and listening techniques to boost your empathy and understanding.

Who is this for

  • Managers and Leaders who want to increase their Emotional Intelligence quotient and self-awareness.
  • Managers and leaders who lead teams of all kinds, especially very diverse teams.

Greenlands Masterclass - An Invitation to The Thinking Environment

14 May 2024 · Greenlands masterclass
*Exclusive to Henley Partnership members* ‘The most valuable thing we can offer each other is the framework in which to think for ourselves.’ Nancy Kline Some of the challenges we face today are those created yesterday. Increasingly, people are becoming victims of dependence on the thinking of others, through fear of not being right, rather than being able to generate their own best thinking. Imagine an environment where we re-cultivate the desire to think for ourselves, rather than collapsing into the thinking of another. In this, the Thinking Environment, our independent thinking releases our innate creativity, compassion and connection to be resilient in the face of complexity and uncertainty.
