Emotionally Intelligent Leadership: A Guide for Students helps students to become emotionally intelligent leaders. Research from around the world has demonstrated that there is a relationship between emotional intelligence and leadership. For the second edition of Emotionally Intelligent Leadership, the authors have incorporated their revised emotionally intelligent leadership (EIL) model into an engaging text for high school, undergraduate, and graduate students. This fast paced and energetic webinar will focus on the model and how it can be applied to curricular and co-curricular settings.

Within this webinar, the authors, Scott Allen, professor of management at John Carroll University, Paige Haber-Curran, professor and program coordinator of student affairs in higher education master’s program at Texas State University, and Marcy Shankman, vice president of strategy and director of Leadership Cleveland, will outline the EIL model (consciousness of context, consciousness of self, and consciousness of others) and explore the 21 capacities that define the emotionally intelligent leader.

Join the ILA in this webinar and learn more about the concept of leadership as a process among people working together productively in a group and not just a top-down phenomenon. The authors will explain how leadership is within everyone’s ability to develop and is not just for those in official roles in formal organizations. You’ll explore more about applying practical leadership skills and hear more about leadership as a learnable skill based on developing healthy and effective relationships.
