Statement of Intent
The foundation of the program will be focused on learning to lead with “Emotional Intelligence”. In “Primal Leadership”, co-author Richard E. Boyatzis states: “Understanding the powerful role of emotions in the workplace sets the best leaders apart from the rest – not just in tangibles such as better business results and the retention of talent, but also in the all-important intangibles, such as higher morale, motivation, and commitment”. As leaders, it is imperative that we better utilize our core emotional competencies - self-awareness, empathy, social mindfulness and relationship management – to truly be successful in the workplace.
With an emphasis on emotional intelligence principles such as connecting with others, developing relationships and being aware of how to manage self, we will pull from a variety of resources so that participants will have practical take-home tools to apply as they focus on their personal leadership development.
The Individual coaching incorporated into the 2023-24 Leadership Academy supports staff development by focusing on each individual’s unique development goals, needs and anchoring concepts related to their specific development goals.
The schedule for the year includes: 1 virutal kick-off event, 7 Online Zoom Gatherings, 2 virtual individual coaching sessions and an in-person certificate ceremony at the SAHMA Leadership Affordable Housing Conference. For the on-line gatherings, participants must have a private space/office with a computer (webcam & microphone optional, but preferred for best interactive ability). Participants must participate in at least 5 of the 7 on-line gatherings and both coaching sessions to be eligible to continue in the program.
Emotional Intelligence 2.0 books will be shipped to each participant. Participants will receive additional information via email about the academy including instructions on connecting remotely, etc.
