EI interventions often serve the function of putting the spotlight on investments in people development and challenging the level of ROI. Whilst these programs have bottom-line impact, they are not for the fainthearted or for HR professionals prepared to settle for the easy option. When practitioners embark on an EI intervention, they are often charting new territory. This usually involves being accountable for ‘people competence’ and being required to quantify the changes accomplished in more concrete ways than in the past. For professionals who choose to venture into this territory, there are results to be gained for individuals, teams and the organization as a whole through intelligent and careful planning. It is time for the so called ‘soft skills’ which encompass EI to be considered as both credible and concrete. Emotional intelligence is tangible, measurable and has a significant impact on the bottom line.

Whether you are an existing or aspiring leader, your are expected to have business acumen. So simply being smart and good at what you do is not the recipe for leadership. Sure, it’s part of the mix, but not the key ingredient – at least for the new way of leadership. What sets a leader apart from a manager (or other any other positional title that involves having authority and power over others) are your intrapersonal skills and effectiveness.
In this webinar, you will learn the fundamental building blocks for leadership proficiency – “intra”personal skills, and how you can master them.
With so many different types of HR software in use, it’s hard to make useful business decisions based on all of the data that’s available to us. This is because all of these pieces of software have their own reporting systems, and almost none of them are able to communicate with each other.
The Tin Can API changes that. It’s a language that all HR, training, and learning platforms can speak, so they can share one common reporting system and help you learn things about your organization that weren’t possible before—including correlating real-world performance data with learning and HR data.
