A mounting body of evidence suggests that leaders with high Emotional Intelligence (EI) tend to outperform leaders with low EI in most leadership situations. There is also evidence that high levels of stress may reduce a leader’s ability to effectively perform his/her role as a leader. In fact, examples of leaders experiencing Catastrophic Leadership Failure abound. In this interview, we learn tips for recognizing stress, identifying key EI skills that have the biggest impact on reducing the negative impacts of stress, and improving facilitation and training to enhance the performance of your participants. Find out how Emotional Intelligence, stress management and successful facilitation skills can combine to form a three-legged stool to enhance your performance as a facilitator in this one-hour interview with Dr. Dick Thompson, Consultant, Trainer, Speaker, Author and Founder of High Performing Systems, Inc.
