Research shows that emotional intelligence is more important than IQ or technical expertise in the business world. When it comes to accomplishing goals, spurring innovation and developing stronger competitive positions, employees’ ability to collaborate effectively is paramount, and people with a high EQ have proven to be the most effective collaborators in the workplace.
The business case for EQ is clear:
An insurance company found the average policy value sold by agents with high EQ was twice that of agents with low EQ.
A study of 500 executive search candidates identified emotional competence as a better predictor of placement success than intelligence or prior experience.
A consumer products company found a “strong relationship” between superior performing leaders and emotional competence.
This interactive, online event will improve individual and organizational EQ.
Participants will learn:

The marketplace has changed and traditional approaches to succession planning need to change if we expect to have a next generation of leaders prepared to lead organizations effectively. Succession planning programs must shift away from getting high potential employees ready to simply assume existing leadership roles to preparing high potential employees for success in a complex and ambiguous marketplace. Adaptability and agility will be skills and competencies that will be more important in the future than the skills that lead to current success for many organizations. These emerging skills will help both the organization and leaders perform well in a marketplace that is rapidly changing and where many key jobs that will be important might not exist today.
Recent studies show that disengaged employees cost the U.S. over $450 billion in lost productivity each year. As the economy and companies continue to recover new growth requires employees that are committed to their organization, willing to spur innovation with new ideas and concepts, and who operate with enthusiasm as they naturally pursue success.
In this webinar we’ll explore the exciting topic of emotional intelligence and how it intrinsically provides the employee a foundation to build qualities, characteristics, and behaviors that lead to greater individual engagement. We’ll look at the world’s first scientifically validated model of emotional intelligence the EQ-i 2.0 and understand how employee engagement connects to specific skills in emotional intelligence. Lastly, we’ll review a plan to cultivate our emotional intelligence skills and empower employees for greater engagement.
The rapid pace of technology and globalization change how organizations operate, but how do people – especially our leaders – adapt? We are biologically hard-wired to resist change and avoid risk even though that hurts our performance.

This webinar looks at the science and evolutionary facts behind leadership and provide specific guidance to make our people and organizations more resilient. You’ll learn:
The hidden barriers that limit our adaptability to change
How our mindset affects resilience, innovation and teamwork
The connection between mindset and success in leadership and sales

In this session, Howard M. Guttman shares his research findings on the inner workings of 25-high-performance teams that cut across industries and vary in size from large to small companies. For example: Colgate, Johnson & Johnson, Mars Inc., Novartis, and L’Oreal.
Howard Guttman isolates the key attributes and related behaviors of high-performance teams, and in the process, challenges prevailing notions of team leadership, membership, accountability, decision making, and conflict, replacing them with a fresh, horizontal approach to achieving ever-higher levels of results.
The session also explores the dynamics of team behavior and how to move around the “Team Development Wheel,” from Stage One testing to Stage Four high performance. Howard Guttman explores the mind set and skill shifts that are required, along with an agreement on protocols, those rules of the road that govern decision making and team-member behavior.
Because life is not a multiple choice test, if you want to know if someone can cut it as a frontline leader, you need to see that individual in action. And that means action as a leader. Too often, first-time managers are promoted because they’re good at what they do in a technical role—yet they lack formal leadership experience and are often left to sink or swim and figure out how to manage people.
Wouldn’t it be great to observe your would-be leaders in real-world situations to evaluate their preparedness and diagnose existing skills gaps before they advance to the front lines?
Join this live demonstration of DDI’s Manager Ready® behavioral assessment to understand how it provides the insight you need to truly know who is ready AND what leadership skills gaps they possess. This demo will show you how participants are given real-world situations to which they must respond using behaviors they would demonstrate on-the-job. And we’ll explain how trained assessors observe and evaluate more than 900 behaviors, across nine critical frontline leadership competencies.
Finally, we will show you how Manager Ready® not only provides you and your frontline leaders with deep insight into specific, need-to-improve leadership behaviors, it also helps guide them through the development planning process via access to development tools and a variety of individual and group feedback options.
Highly engaged employees help to build and sustain a culture where people want to work and are excited to deliver great results. In return, employees have a positive impact on our relationships with customers, suppliers and communities. At Ingersoll Rand, they understand, appreciate and embrace their differences and use these strengths to continuously improve their business. In 2012, Ingersoll Rand rapidly deployed The Ingersoll Rand Leader: Engaging Your Employees (EYE) training to a global audience and found that leaders attending the training session had an increase in engagement scores two times higher than their counterparts who did not attend the program. To enhance the support the managers, the company also created an on-line and simple support site that highlighted just a few critical tools and activities managers could take, aligned with content from EYE. To leverage the leader’s role in engagement, they also worked to improve engagement by providing coaching to help managers engage employees on what matters most to them and focus local accountability to drive more tailored and meaningful actions.
In this session, learn more about Ingersoll Rand’s efforts to grow engagement, hear more about the crucial role played by leaders, and how their formula for success could be applied inside your organization.
