Chapter - May 2017: How Emotionally Intelligent Leaders Build Trust and High-Performing Teams


With empirical evidence emphasizing self-awareness as pivotal to emotional intelligence, this presentation offers various leadership models (e.g., communication, personality, defensiveness) designed to offer our attendees insights into how they can develop further their emotional intelligence.


High performing teams enjoy high trust levels, both of which are by-products enjoyed by emotionally intelligent leaders. Learn specific actions you can take to build trust and trustworthiness within your team members and those beyond. If you and your team together are driven to go to the next higher level, you’ll find out how by going to the next deeper level, and it all starts with self-awareness.  Expect to walk away with a new appreciation for the neuroscience of trust and what we know to date regarding the etiology of how we learned to (dis)trust from our earlier years.

  • Understand Emotional Intelligence and the role of self-awareness in developing greater emotional intelligence
  • Learn the different models, didactics, and methodologies used in leadership development programs aimed to develop emotional intelligence   
  • Appreciate the practicalities of building trust, and learn what specific actions you can take to create more cohesive, collaborative teams and relationships
