Educational organizations that operate in emotionally intelligent ways are able to build and develop trust and commitment, meet
demanding challenges in positive and productive ways, and create a climate that is empowering and dynamic. These are the key ingredients for cultivating an organization that is recognized and respected for its innovation, excellence, and extraordinary service.
When employees have a strong sense of belonging and engagement, they perceive more options to solve problems, are more insightful, collaborate better, and have higher overall performance.

Research shows that above an IQ of 120, emotional intelligence and learned optimism are the stronger predictors of successful leaders. This is where Leading with Courage, Connection, and Compassion can help. It’s about learning to strengthen our self-awareness, compassion, and resilience while also increasing focus, productivity, and strategic thinking. It’s about the ability to strengthen employee engagement, sense of belonging and connection to the organization, and the capacity to cultivate innovative changemakers. Pulling weeds does not grow gardens. If we want our employees and organizations to flourish, we need cultivate the environment in ways that cause people to bloom. Using research-based principles and strategies from the fields of Positive Psychology, Social Psychology, Leadership, and Emotional Intelligence, this highly active and engaging session, participants will learn the fundamentals of leading with courage, connection, and compassion and how to use those superpowers to create a culture in which both the individuals and the organization can thrive.
