This workshop is an intensive 5-day session designed to enable participants to learn about, build, and practice emotional intelligence skills in a small group setting. Skilled facilitators provide tools and feedback to enable participants to learn about themselves and to immediately practice emerging skills. As group life unfolds, participants give and receive feedback regarding the impact they have on others in the group. Participants will learn both inter-personal and intra-group communication skills.
The primary emphasis of this workshop is leadership development. To quote Daniel Goleman in Primal Leadership, “The fundamental task of a leader is to prime good feelings in those they lead. That occurs when a leader creates resonance—a reservoir of positivity that frees the best in people. At its root the primal job of leadership is emotion. The power of emotionally intelligent leadership is to inspire, arouse passion and enthusiasm – and keep people motivated and committed.” This sounds like the traits of an effective church leader.
