[Workshop] The Critical Role of Emotional Intelligence in Leading Change

Led by: WomenLift Health Alumnae.

Emotional Intelligence is no longer a soft skill. Instead, it is a power-skill for resilient leadership and impactful change. In the face of a rapidly evolving world, characterized by volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity (VUCA), the demand for transformational leadership in global health has never been more urgent. This is a comprehensive 90-minute workshop designed to equip current and aspiring leaders with awareness on emotional intelligence (EI) skills necessary to navigate this complexity, with agility and impact.

This session delves deep into the transformative power of EI in leading change and shaping a culture of personal and organizational resilience. With the increasing prevalence of technological shifts and a rising epidemic of burnout, there is a clear need for leaders to not only understand and manage their own emotions, but also positively influence the emotional climate of their teams and organizations. EI emerges as a cornerstone for leaders to effectively sponsor the people-side of change, enabling them to communicate effectively, manage stress and uncertainty, foster adaptability, and lead with empathy.

Featuring insights from Dr. Aparna Arvind and Dr. Kashmira Date, experts in the field of leadership development and global health respectively, the 90-min workshop will explore the science of EI, its intersection with change adoption, and practical tips to apply insight. Through a blend of mini-lectures, real-life anecdotes, and interactive practical exercises using concepts from Positive Intelligence ® and Genos Emotional Intelligence ®, attendees will gain invaluable insights into enhancing their EI capabilities. The workshop is structured to provide actionable strategies for developing and applying EI, emphasizing empathy, emotional awareness, and regulation as pathways to driving greater connectedness and shaping resilience within teams/organizations. Change starts from a place of awareness, and this workshop intends to enrich participants with the tools to help take proactive steps in shifting their leadership narrative.
