The elements of emotionally intelligent leadership

Workshops elements cover eight core competencies that support Emotionally Intelligent Leadership.


Participants will be asked to select three of these to pursue in depth over the course of this program. Seek feedback and advice from the people who know you best to help with selection of these.

Emotional Intelligence

Develop a deeper awareness of your impact on others through the ability to reflect on, understand, and work with your emotions, behaviours, and values, with a deeper awareness of your impact on others.

Learning outcome:

Understanding emotions, preferences, and values to support working in complexity and responding to stressful situations.


Purposeful conversations

Become comfortable and open to having conversations that matter, which will enable you to better understand different perspectives, clarify expectations, and hold people to account.

Learning outcome:

Communicate with influence and impact.



Fostering positive engagement with people that supports valuable relationships, including one-to-one and whole-of-network. This requires building spaces for vulnerability, empathy, and empowerment that leads to trusting connections.

Learning outcome:

Develop trusting relationships and networks.



Clarifying direction and creating a culture of learning that provides the opportunity for people to bring their voice, constructively challenge ideas, experiment and fail, safe in the knowledge that difference is valued as a mechanism for creativity.

Learning outcome:

Get the most from others.



Applying a systemic lens to the interconnectivity of people, ideas, and purpose. This recognises that impactful collaboration requires clear intention, acknowledgement of interpersonal dynamics, a willingness to adapt, and a commitment to a shared outcome.

Learning outcome:

Drive productivity and innovation.



Adopting a growth mindset to realise the potential for learning and mutual gain in a conflict situation. This involves surfacing competing priorities and values and supporting ourselves and others to be comfortable with difference. 

Learning outcome:

Shape a mutually beneficial outcome.



Drawing on personal, social, and broader resources to work within a shifting and uncertain environment. This involves knowing what to hold onto, and what to let go of that is no longer serving the purpose.

Learning outcome:

Be agile and future-proof.



Supporting personal and collective wellbeing by reading the signals of fatigue, depletion, and overwhelm and responding with strategies that enable self and others to reenergise and thrive.

Learning outcome:

Care for yourself and others.
