Emotional (literacy) Intelligence for  Collaborative Leaders


It is very well recognized that our workplace is one of the important social space. It is a central spot where employers, employees, supervisors and managers interact and communicate with each other. It is shaped by our individual and collective behaviors. These are in turn a true reflection of our emotions based on our personal traits and organizational status, rank, autonomy, fairness, and recognitions. It is beyond doubt that there is a significant role for our emotional bias in terms of underpinning our creativity, innovation, decision making or collaborative leadership qualities.

Given the hype as well as the significance of emotional intelligence (EI), it is important that we have to constantly learn and unlearn the concepts so as to broaden our view point. Almost all the EI training programs focus on understanding and controlling our reactions to emotions so as to perform better. In this presentation, the basics of such training tools are posited as only a compass, a relationship positioning system (RPS) but not the journey by itself. Some new concepts will be introduced to take the audience one step further with some suggestions to use our collective heads into a different frame of mind.
