Emotionally Intelligent Leader

Haskayne Executive Education

Designed to integrate everyday workplace situations, the aim of this online program is to develop your emotional intelligence (EI) strategies over a period of time. As you learn both foundational and advanced EI concepts and frameworks, you will intentionally focus on practicing tools within your work environment. Practically applying your new knowledge will build positive habits and skills to increase your effectiveness in leading yourself and your team.

During the initial self-directed modules, you will identify and analyze real challenges and begin to build your development plan. These sessions provide the foundation for the more advanced materials that you will explore in the live, interactive online sessions with the instructor. This learning experience is facilitated by Fred Jacques PhD, a sought-after coach and EI practitioner with over 30 years of experience in both profit and not-for-profit sectors.
