Emotional Intelligence for Personal and Professional Leadership

  • Demonstrating your Emotional SMARTS, otherwise known as emotional intelligence, is non-negotiable to your life, work and relationship success. It’s all about how you apply your knowledge or wisdom to manage your emotions – and this is particularly important when life does a “run-away” on you!

    Terms of reference have changed about what constitutes “competence,” and forward-thinking people and organizations “get it!”. They work at having all employees – from the front line to the board room – competent and skilled at applying their Emotional SMARTS so they effectively self-manage, appropriately behave, fluently build relationships and make quality decisions in getting the job done!

Getting a Grip on Change – Staying Sane Through Complexity

  • To say that “change is constant” is an understatement. Knowing the four phases of change that organizations, departments, relationships and even friendships MUST go through can position one to weather the emotional upheaval that accompanies the change cycles. It doesn’t mean the changes will stop, but what this information can do, is make the very human reactions to those change cycles more predictable, understandable and manageable.

    This knowledge can give people a greater sense of control over what is happening to them and around them.  It can also help people be proactive about how to best deal with personal and professional change on their horizon. Once done, they are better able to establish strategies, so they don’t find themselves becoming emotionally high-jacked and saying or doing things that could become a CLM (Career Limiting Move)! This change model makes sense – and consistently managing our very human reactions to change can only benefit us and everyone we come in contact with.

Relationship Building – or “Why can’t THEY be more like ME?”

  • Isn’t it frustrating when people and their questionable or sometimes crazy behaviours get in the way of us doing what we want? Well … life happens … and this workshop provides insight into those very deep-rooted and personal motivators that result in others (and us) saying what is said and doing what is done!

    Make no mistake about it – we all have very core and personal needs that must be met on a continual basis. These needs are driven by many factors: our behavioural style, gender, age group, cultural influences, and thinking style, to name just a few! Many times, people don’t even know what their core needs are. This places them at a disadvantage because then they don’t know how to enhance the bright side of their style and more pro-actively manage the “dark side”.

    Equally important, they don’t know how to appreciate the bright side of others and react when they demonstrate the “dark side” of their behavioural style. This dynamic creates ripe territory for high-tension interpersonal situations that directly lead to conflict!

    To further complicate matters, when people don’t know how to demonstrate high behavioural flexibility AND high Emotional SMARTS, and their dark side consumes them (as often happens when people feel angry, overwhelmed or out of control), they can be perceived in any one of four ways – as a “bully”, “loose cannon”, “wimp”, or “anal”. Descriptions most people don’t want to be used on them. This workshop of MacDonald Oguike is an eye-opener for people who need to work with others to get the job done – whether that’s at work, at home, or in social groups!

Butting Heads – Taking the Sting out of Conflict

  • What is it about the conflict that results in many people either “leading with their left” or “heading for the hills to hide out”? You know the signs … where people either come out of their corner with a passive-aggressive, combative or antagonistic approach or “hideout” hoping if they close their eyes long enough, the conflict will go away? It is our view that many people have simply never learned how to identify, assess, address and resiliently recover from conflict. They are often immobilized by dated thinking, unrealistic self-talk or inappropriate reactions.

    People learn to mask, minimize or misrepresent conflict, with the result being that minor issues, which could quickly be addressed early in a conflict cycle, aren’t, and then they take on a life of their own. The situation often then becomes bigger than big to where those involved become driven by ego and get to a place of loving to hate the “other guy,” therefore totally losing sight of the real reasons for the conflict.   We refer to this as getting to know “the story behind the story”.

    This presentation of MacDonald Oguike puts a face to conflict.  It talks about the reasons for it, how it gets fuelled and how to lessen its intensity of it. Participants will leave with a conflict management process to administer in any situation. With practice (and high Emotional SMARTS and behavioural style flexibility), it is expected one’s fear and trepidation about conflict would lessen, confidence in addressing conflict would increase, and the individual would be able to demonstrate personal leadership by demonstrating a pro-active and forward-thinking new type of conflict management direction.
