EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE WORKSHOP
The cornerstone of the LTI Training Program is our Emotional Intelligence Workshop and Assessment.
The EQ-I 2.0 workshop and assessment is one of the most robust programs available today.
What is Emotional Intelligence?
Emotional Intelligence (EI) can be defined as a set of emotional and social skills that influence the way we perceive and express ourselves, develop and maintain social relationships, cope with challenges, and use emotional information in an effective and meaningful way.
Why is EI important?
While emotional intelligence isn’t the sole predictor of human performance and development potential, it is proven to be a key indicator in these areas. Emotional intelligence is not a static factor – to the contrary, one’s emotional intelligence changes over time and can be developed in targeted areas.
A Scientific Approach to Talent Development
For almost 20 years, consultants and organizations have trusted the science that underpins the EQ-i 2.0® (and its predecessor the EQ-i 1.0) to help improve human performance. The EQ-i 2.0 is a psychometric assessment which measures emotional intelligence (EI) and how it can impact people and the workplace. Being the first scientifically validated measure of EI, coupled with research from premier organizations, means you can count on the EQ-i 2.0 to add robustness and accuracy to your talent management initiatives.
Applications of Emotional Intelligence include:
The EQ-i2.0® Model
The 1-5-15 factor structure: The EQ-i 2.0 features one overarching EI score (Total EI), broken down into five composite scores which measure five distinct aspects of emotional and social functioning. These in turn, are broken down into a total of 15 subscales.

THE LEADERSHIP CHALLENGE
The Leadership Challenge® Workshop is a unique, intensive, and highly interactive experience that has served as a catalyst for profound leadership transformations in organizations of all sizes and in all industries.
The Leadership Challenge® Workshop will engage you and your leaders through experiential activities, workbook exercises, group problem-solving tasks, video cases, and lectures. And you’ll get plenty of hands-on practice applying The Five Practices leadership model to current organizational and personal leadership challenges.
Immensely practical and hands-on, The Leadership Challenge® Workshop is designed to inspire, engage, and help your leaders develop the skills needed to meet whatever leadership challenges lay ahead. The core curriculum is structured around seven components, including five independent modules that focus specifically on each of The Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership® that lead people from ordinary to extraordinary.
LPI: LEADERSHIP PRACTICES INVENTORY®
Each module describes the practice, reviews the Leadership Practices Inventory (LPI) items related to that practice, and ends with techniques that asks participants to reflect on how to apply what they’ve have learned to a current leadership challenge of their own.
“Leadership is the capacity to translate vision into reality.”
With a plan of action in-hand for taking the key learnings from the workshop back to the workplace, leaders will be prepared to implement these new leadership practices back on the job, beginning Day 1.

THE FIVE PRACTICES OF EXEMPLARY LEADERSHIP
1) Model The Way
Leaders establish principles concerning the way people (constituents, peers, colleagues, and customers alike should be treated and the way goals should be pursued. They create standards of excellence and then set an example for others to follow. Because the prospect of complex change can overwhelm people and stifle action, they set interim goals so that people can achieve small wins as they work toward larger objectives. They unravel bureaucracy when it impedes action; they put up signposts when people are unsure of where to go or how to get there; and they create opportunities for victory.
2) Inspire A Shared Vision
Leaders passionately believe that they can make a difference. They envision the future, creating an ideal and unique image of what the organization can become. Through their magnetism and quiet persuasion, leaders enlist others in their dreams. They breathe life into their visions and get people to see exciting possibilities for the future.
3) Challenge The Process
Leaders search for opportunities to change the status quo. They look for innovative ways to improve the organization. In doing so, they experiment and take risks. And because leaders know that risk taking involves mistakes and failures, they accept the inevitable disappointments as learning opportunities.
4) Enable Others To Act
Leaders foster collaboration and build spirited teams. They actively involve others. Leaders understand that mutual respect is what sustains extraordinary efforts; they strive to create an atmosphere of trust and human dignity. They strengthen others, making each person feel capable and powerful.
5) Encourage The Heart
Accomplishing extraordinary things in organizations is hard work. To keep hope and determination alive, leaders recognize contributions that individuals make. In every winning team, the members need to share in the rewards of their efforts, so leaders celebrate accomplishments. They make people feel like heroes.
Overall, The Leadership Challenge® model emphasizes behaviors and has a prescriptive quality: it recommends what people need to do in order to become effective leaders. Their model is not about personality; it is about practice. At LT/, it is our goal for each of your leaders to not only improve the performance of those they lead, but to develop each of them to their fullest potential. Because investing in people will ultimately yield the greatest ROI; not just on the Financial statements, but on employee satisfaction, productivity, and turnover.
