Emotional Intelligence

Presented by Stacy Alldredge

Emotional intelligence is the “other kind of smart.” It affects how we manage behavior, navigate social interactions and make personal decisions to achieve positive results. These skills also shape how an individual responds to, and works, communicates and interacts with other people.  Your ability to improve in the emotional-intelligence arena will ultimately improve your connections with others.

Learning objectives

  • Understand what emotional intelligence is and how — when practiced consciously — it can improve relationships and personal success
  • Understand the four domains of emotional intelligence: Self-awareness, self-management, social awareness and relationship management

Developing the Leader Within You 2.0

Twenty-five years ago, leadership authority John Maxwell published a book that forever transformed how we think about leadership.

Developing the Leader Within You 2.0 updates the foundational principles for transformative leadership that Maxwell has used as a leader for more than 40 years.

DISCover Yourself and Your Team

Presented by Mary Klein

The first step in personal and professional success is to know yourself. This course will help participants learn more about themselves and those with whom they work. DISC is the most widely used behavioral assessment tool, measuring four behavioral styles: Dominance, Influence, Steadiness and Compliance.

The DISC instruments will help participants:

  • Gain greater sensitivity to others around them
  • Maximize personal strengths and minimize weaknesses
  • Identify how and why people make decisions
  • Reveal root communication problems
  • Motivate others toward greater productivity
  • Develop focused and motivated teams and enhance teamwork
  • Learn how others process information and respond to change
  • Recognize the compatibility of behavior styles

Blanchard’s SL2 Model

Presented by Sam Thompson

Ken Blanchard Companies’ SLII® leadership training program helps managers learn to be agile, lead situationally and empower their people to succeed. The most widely used leadership training program in the world, it teaches leaders how to build meaningful connections that create exponential impact. When this happens, employees are more productive and engaged — and their organizations can excel. SLII is an easy-to-understand, practical framework that enables managers to diagnose the development level of an employee for a task and then use the appropriate directive and supporter behaviors to help them succeed. The proven methodology enables managers to help their direct reports soar to new professional heights.

Leading Inclusively

This workshop will be presented by Amber Smith, Vice President for Inclusion and Equity at the University of Indianapolis.

As our world has become more in-tune with the complexities of identity and culture, organizations are looking for inclusive leaders to engage fearlessly in vulnerable and honest conversations. How can we create institutions that respect, uplift, and engage its members in critical thought, respectful dialogue, and productive conversation? The Intercultural Development Inventory is a cultural assessment that provides participants with a deeper understanding of their own cultural perspectives and teaches them ways to adapt and adjust their cultural perspectives to include those similar and different than their own.

The Sease Supervisory Series presents an inclusive leadership seminar geared toward defining and refining your intercultural competence. After taking the Intercultural Development Inventory, participants will engage in personal and group reflection and conversation around receiving feedback and how intercultural competence helps or hinders your leadership, after which participants can expect to analyze real time scenarios around leading inclusively.
