Auckland University LogoIn association with the University of Auckland Business School, PwC is pleased to showcase their Executive Education leadership course within our training portfolio.

“The most effective leaders are all alike in one crucial way: They all have a high degree of what has come to be known as emotional intelligence,” Daniel Goleman, author of the New York Times bestseller Emotional Intelligence.

Organisations are now beginning to switch on to the advantages of having their leaders trained in EI. Leaders who employ EI skills help themselves and their people to:

  • Grow stronger relationships at all levels with colleagues, management, clients and stakeholders
  • Create ‘proactive’ high-performing teams
  • Think and act adaptively no matter the situation
  • Communicate with greater openness and purpose
  • Achieve better results with greater ownership, accountability and responsibility

Topics covered

In this two-day interactive workshop, you will gain practical and effective skills and tools to understand, engage and influence others to achieve even more. The EI model is simplicity itself, and within each stage participants will gain a multitude of tools for everyday leadership:

  • Self-Awareness – the foundation to self-leadership
  • Self-Management – the strength, flexibility and confidence to lead, no matter when…no matter what
  • Social Awareness – growing your abilities to connect and engage at all levels
  • Relationship Management – professional influence skills in leading performance
