Course Description

Much of a leader’s work is accomplished through daily conversations with team members and others. These interactions, especially the tough ones, often involve intensely personal feelings (on both sides) that have an impact on the practical outcome of the conversation and the personal connection between the leader and the person. The leader’s level of emotional intelligence—the ability to manage oneself and one’s relationships—is a critical factor in the success of these tough conversations. In Communication: Connect Through Conversations, learners recognize that they can enhance their emotional intelligence by balancing “heart” and “head” in their tough conversations. They can address the heart by considering and responding to others’ feelings; they can engage the head by guiding conversations toward the desired business outcomes. Through high energy activities, videos, and discussions, leaders learn flexible communication skills that will help them balance heart and head in all types of conversations, whether communicating face to face, by phone, or remotely.
