    Inclusive & Emotionally Intelligent Leadership

    Emotional intelligence is one of the most fundamental strategic skills for effective leadership, and in our current environment, the ability to connect with others is more important than ever before. While self-awareness and the ability to manage oneself is a piece of that, understanding and influencing others is essential. Being successful requires a leadership mindset that embraces empathy and diversity. In this engaging 1-hour program we will discuss the four aspects of emotionally intelligent leadership with an emphasis on inclusivity.

    In this session, Sarah Eppink, Aisling Group, LLC,
    will lead participants through:

    • Emotional intelligence: your strategic asset
    • The 6 behaviors of inclusive leaders and how they overlap with emotional intelligence
    • Managing yourself 
    • Partnering with others
    • The new lens of inclusion post-Covid and returning to work
    • Expressing empathy

      This session applies to the following areas of the ATD Capability Model:

      Personal Capability:

      • Communication
