Virtual coffee talk

In these unique and extraordinary times, true leadership is more important than ever. In this reflective and interactive workshop, participants will examine Emotional Intelligence and Social Emotional skill-building through the lens of their own leadership and leadership style. They will learn tools for maximizing the power of this side of their own leadership, as well as bringing out the best of it in their staff. Beyond the “soft” skills and fluffy exterior, this is as hard as it gets. Join us to uncover new paths and possibilities, for yourself and your program.

Learning Objectives

  1. Participants will understand what Emotional Intelligence and SEL skills are, and how those skills relate to them, as well as their team.
  2. Participants will discover their own Social and Emotional strengths and opportunity spots, and will create an action plan for strengthening the Social and Emotional landscape of their teams
  3. Participants will make a direct connection between leadership and SEL, and will learn how to approach their leadership from a different angle.
  4. Participants will have one heck of a fun and engaging experience, getting the opportunity to step away from the monotony of their day-to-day and tap into some joy, laughter, and self-care– whether for 90 minutes or all day.
