Emotional Intelligence Coaching Certification Programs for Leaders in Education and Healthcare
Not long ago, technical expertise was among the most preferred (sometimes, the only) criteria for hiring new employees. Employers used to overlook soft skills like emotional intelligence and leadership, which used to act as a hindrance to their growth. Over the years, companies have recognized the importance of emotional intelligence, and it has now become a desirable trait to look for during the hiring process.
Star Factor Coaching offers a coaching certification program built upon emotional intelligence leadership competencies: self-awareness, self-regulation, social awareness, and relationships management. We help leaders recognize and develop their emotional and social strengths through emotional intelligence training. Leaders’ capacity to be their best selves requires that they use their emotions wisely. This requires reflection and practice.
Why emotional intelligence in leadership is important
We live in a world that is volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous (VUCA). As leaders, we must achieve our end goal. To accomplish this, we have to guide everyone involved in reaching this goal to cope with this VUCA environment. Emotional intelligence training in leadership can help leaders develop these traits and support them at all levels of the organization to expand self-awareness, manage stress and pressure, enhance interpersonal effectiveness, diffuse leadership presence and influence, increase confidence levels, and build productive relationships.
Our leadership training addresses the science and practice of working with emotional skills for adults and children. Sessions are highly interactive and incorporate theory and practice so that learning becomes immediately applicable to the daily challenges within a school/work setting. We use our expertise to develop a healthy culture. In schools this supports the social, emotional and academic learning of students and adult stakeholders alike. In healthcare, it supports the clinicians, nurses and doctors to build a caring community among themselves as well as their patients.
How we support emotional intelligence professional development
Some people develop emotional intelligence naturally, but most need support to learn and apply it to daily life situations. The STAR Factor emotional intelligence leadership training model is anchored in the four cluster competencies of the Goleman model of emotional intelligence: self-awareness, self-regulation, social- awareness and relationships management and the emotion skills of the Salovey and Mayer model of emotional intelligence:
(1) perception/expression of emotion,
(2) use of emotion to facilitate thinking,
(3) understanding of emotion, and
(4) management of emotion in oneself and others.
Combined with leadership theory, intentional change theory and positive and self-psychology, participants take reflective time to explore their leader selves
Our New York City-based emotional intelligence coaching program is professional development that explores the leader’s mindset and values that impact leadership choices, approaches and behaviors. They acquire strategies that are used to develop productive, transformative relationships with stakeholders, systems focused on mental models, and structures that create inequity and impede performance and progress. In a VUCA world, we all need supports to lead with confidence and, exemplify self-control, keep our teams motivated, and approach problems methodically.
