Sara L. Orem, Ph.D, is co-auther of "Appreciative Coaching", and will join us in a discussion on appreciative feedback; in her own words: "Leaders need feedback. Most of us fear feedback as potentially negative, that is- as personal bad news. The appreciative approach to feedback is twofold. First it focuses on what the leader already does well. Second, it is honest. So how can feedback be both positive and honest? Appreciative feedback asks the leader to leverage her strengths, values, and purpose toward change--her own and her organization's. When the leader also has unhelpful, or even potentially destructive behavior, appreciative feedback refocuses energy on strengths,skills, talents and experience--and finally, leverages the strengths of the leader's team (among whom missing skills can be found). Sara will share her experience with leaders using this appreciative approach to feedback." The focus of Leadership Development in emotional intelligence is to inform, support and discuss themes about leadership and the essential ingredient of emotional intelligence which is a premium for performance and success. Information on the subject will help mid-management leaders seeking C-level opportunities to create resonant relationships to advance their career and enhance interpersonal skills. Middle management potentials get support by sharing ideas and stories and hearing the same from other leaders. The show reviews tools, case studies and real life experience that pertain to emotional intelligence and professional development.
