Clavello - Leading with Intent and Intuition…Even When You Are not in Charge

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Everyone is a leader by title or by choice, or has the potential to become one.
In order to transform traditional classrooms into modern learning environments, highly effective leaders must not only lead by example; they must also tap into their emotional intelligence (EQ), which is a better predictor of success than IQ and experience.
Unlike IQ, EQ can be improved and strengthened over time.

People who consciously choose to inspire and influence others -whether they are
the boss or not- are equipped with a unique skillset, mindset and toolset. They show great kindness, sincerity, affection, and empathy, thus bringing out the best in others. By being more in tune with themselves and more aware of what is happening around them,
they have the ability to understand and share others' experiences and emotions, and therefore connect at a deeper level.
This is especially important when addressing myths and misconceptions about the value of digital learning as well as when dealing with staff who is resistant to change or show skepticism.

Participants in this session will learn how nurturing their inner strengths to
effectively manage their behavior and interactions with others results in better
