Lunch & Learn: Leading with Emotional Intelligence


“Great leaders move us. They ignite our passion and inspire the best in us. When we try to explain why they are so effective, we speak of strategy, powerful ideas or vision. But the reality is much more primal: Great leaders work through the emotions.” - Annie McKee, Dan Goleman and Richard Boyatzis, Primal Leadership

Recent studies indicate that emotional intelligence is a powerful key to effective leadership. The cost of lack of emotional intelligence at work is huge in terms of staff turnover, low work output, stress, mistakes and poor customer service - but they often go unnoticed. Ironically, many of us have been programmed to believe that we can eliminate emotion from our work lives, but emotions are a natural and constant part of human experience.

Join us for an interactive Lunch & Learn session to hear, discuss and share key lessons on how to recognise and positively manage emotions in yourself and in others for more effective leadership.

You will leave this session with a better understanding of:
  • The importance and value of Emotional Intelligence (EQ) for leadership in the 21st century and beyond
  • The key dimensions of EQ and why it matters for business
  • Insights and tips for avoiding the pitfalls of EQ and implementing it to specific leadership situations

The session will be led by one of The Change School founders comprising a talk, interactive discussion and networking.

Bring along your brown bag lunch and join us for a fun, engaging and informative Lunch & Learn session!
