Emotionally Smart Leadership
When and Where
We become better leaders by becoming better humans. In an increasing time of volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity we need to double down on our most important resource – the humans who work in our organizations. Without Emotionally Smart Intelligence at the heart of your leadership and organization, your success is at risk. Traditional leadership theories focus on external output, but that is only half of the equation. Leadership development over emphasizes leadership learning and leadership training and under emphasizes leadership development. Organizations ignore the most powerful source of ability – our capacity and the capacity of the people who work for us – to overcome the limitations of our current ways of making meaning. The challenges of today require the critical skill of adaptation which requires transformation of our mindsets. Behavioral Health Organizations can and should be setting the pace.
