Daniel Goleman, author of Emotional Intelligence, tells us that the most effective leaders use a collection of distinct leadership styles – each in the right measure, at just the right time – to accomplish their goal.  He acknowledges that such flexibility is tough to put into action, but it pays off in exceptional performance.  The good news is that emotional intelligence, leadership styles, and how to use them to maximize results can be learned.

Simply learning about leadership styles is not enough to make you an adept, insightful leader.  It takes using each style again and again, and examining the feedback from each interaction, to really develop the skillful use of leadership styles.

This 1-day workshop will introduce you to the components of emotional intelligence and how they shape distinct leadership styles.  Then, you’ll jump into applying those concepts as you play through scenarios on a computer workstation running the Virtual Leader simulator.   Workshop leader, Dr. Mary Sue Love, will guide you through interpreting the detailed feedback information each round of the simulation provides.  Three different scenarios with escalating challenges for leadership will be covered during the day.  But wait, there’s more….

Enrollment in this workshop will give you access to the vLeader simulator for 6 months.  You will be able to repeat the scenarios as many times as you want.  By trying out different leadership styles in the same scenario, you will be able to see the impact each has, and develop a deep understanding of when, and why, to apply each leadership style for maximum effect.

The SIUE Executive Education division of the School of Business reserves the right to cancel or postpone any course when necessary. If we cancel or postpone a course for any reason, you may choose to receive a FULL refund or apply  the course fee to a subsequent offering of the same or a similar course. The latter option may be exercised within one calendar year of the original course.

If you register and pay for a course and then withdraw a one week or more before the start date of the course, a full refund of the course fee less an administrative fee of $50 will be made.

If cancellation occurs less than one week before the start date of the course, no refund of the course fee will be made; however, at the discretion of the Director of Executive Education Programs, the course fee may be applied to a subsequent offering of the same or similar course with a course fee that is at least equal to the cost of the original course. If the course fee of a subsequent course exceeds the amount paid for the original course, the difference in the course fee amounts must be paid in full prior to the start of the subsequent course. An approved substitution must occur within one calendar year of the original course.
