ESADE Alumni and the programme directors are pleased to invite you an exclusive EMBA and PT MBA event featuring Richard Boyatzis, father of Emotional Intelligence and guest professor in the ESADE department of people management and organisation.
Great leaders move us. They move us through a basic human process- our emotions. Although they talk of strategy and competition, the great leaders establish a deep emotional connection with others called resonance. They are literally, in tune with others around them. Their own levels of emotional intelligence allow them to create and nurture these resonant relationships. They use their EI as a path to resonant leadership through mindfulness, hope and compassion.
Unfortunately, most people in leadership positions lose their effectiveness over time. Because of the cumulative effect of the damage from chronic stress, effectiveness in leadership and maintaining resonant relationships is not sustainable But, humans can revive themselves, neurologically, hormonally, and emotionally. This process of renewal can reverse the ravages of chronic stress. Through renewal experiences a person can become more cognitive, perceptually and emotionally open. They can innovate and learn. They can make informed, astute decisions. They can be open to motivating others.
Based on decades of research into emotional intelligence competencies and longitudinal studies in their development, Professor Richard Boyatzis will lead the audience through examples of what resonance looks and feels like, as well as ideas as to develop someone's "resonant leadership" capability, their emotional intelligence, and the experiences of mindfulness, hope, and compassion. He will help the participants experience the Positive Emotional Attractor that is an essential beginning to sustained, desired change at all levels. The process of change examined will address how to help individuals and teams develop, organizations adapt and grow, and even communities and countries move closer to what they can be.

Profesor Boyatzis' talk will be followed by a networking cocktail for everyone present.
