Dr Mike Gosling created The Emotional Leader System with a very simple mission: to help successful people achieve positive, lasting change in behavior; for themselves, their people, and their teams. I want to help you make your life a little better. Thank you for joining! Life is good.
Introduction to The Emotional Leader System Foundations Module
In Coaching for Success we explore aspects of Stakeholder Centered Coaching® that increases the likelihood of success for all leaders.
Choose your Leader behavioural development goal. Write it as a SMART goal. Enrol 6-8 Stakeholders. Manager review of your desired behaviour and Stakeholders (if applicable).
Develop an initial Action Plan based upon EI results and Stakeholder input and share it with Stakeholders. Conduct your first online Stakeholder mini-survey.
There are Eight Emotional Leader Habits: recognize, express, generate, match, know, predict, manage and master emotion. This set of emotional skills is derived from the MSCEIT™. They are not taught in a classroom but learned in the drama of life as you identify, express, use, understand and manage your emotions and the emotions of others.
Habit 1 - Learn to recognise emotion in faces and the environment. What role does recognising emotion play in your overall judgement of events?
Habit 2 - There are two emotional styles – avoidant and reactive. Which one are you? How do you express emotion?
Habit 3 - Your ability to generate and communicate empathy determines how good you are at "flicking-the-switch". A communication model is presented. Develop expert skills in effective communication.
Habit 4 - Explore your ability to mood-task match. Are you in-tune with your moods, feelings, and emotions? Do you have an anxious or angry personality? And how do you manage your emotional arousal?
Habit 5 - Take a close look at the change process and how emotion chains occur. Learn how to move on from anger and anxiety. Explore some positive emotions, as well as an introduction to trauma reactions. Do not to fall for Othello's error!
Habit 6 - Emotional knowledge is the most difficult part of studying emotions. Knowing emotional language and how emotions blend to form compound emotions and effective emotional expression is an essential skill.
Habit 7 - This habit is all about how you conduct emotional self-management. It is not about self-control and you will learn the difference. It is particularly relevant to those of you who want to understand your inner voice and get on top of its destructive power.
Habit 8 - Learn the secret to effective emotional leadership – building trust in relationships and becoming unconsciously skilled in emotions. Develop an action plan to focus your goals.
The EQ-i 2.0® is a way of examining your emotional intelligence (EI) skills! You will find many unique features linking EI and leadership development. These features provide you with a snapshot of how your EI compares to that of other leaders and insight into your leadership strengths and potential areas for development.
The Genos 360° EI Workplace Behaviour Feedback Report presents how well an individual demonstrates emotionally intelligent workplace behaviour, how important it is to colleagues that they do so, and qualitative comments from raters.
The semi-formal tool to measure progress in The Emotional Leaders System is the monthly follow-up with Stakeholders. The formal tools to measure progress are the online Emotional Intelligence assessments and the Stakeholder Mini-Survey.
“That which is used develops; that which is not used wastes away.” ― Hippocrates (c. 460 BC -370 BC). Do not revert to old practices. Ensure change is permanent. Document your "story" of success. Reinforce your positive results. Use the 7 Step process with Stakeholders to take you forward into the future.
