It is well known that leaders have a considerable impact on the culture, productivity, and effectiveness of individuals, teams, and organizations. The breadth of influence of nursing leadership is compelling and can create powerful positive change for individuals, communities, and society at large.

Nurses as authentic leaders generate the connection to others that is so desired when working in challenging circumstances.

Emotional intelligence (EI) is best defined as the ability to identify and manage emotional information in oneself and others and focus energy on required behaviours. These skills and competencies complement a person’s cognitive and technical skills. EI is a key component to effective leadership. Nurses must have a solid understanding of how their emotions and actions affect the people around them. The better a nurse relates to and works with others, the more adept he or she will be in connecting with patients to understand their needs, acknowledging and managing frustrations, and finding long-term solutions.
This interactive webinar will cover a personalized EQ-I 2.0 report for each participant, an understanding of what EI is and how it impacts interactions with others, the role of EI in optimized nursing practice, and how to target EI growth areas and create an individualized plan for development.
