Leading with Emotional Intelligence for Stress Management

The purpose of conducting this three-day training programme is to develop awareness and competencies about the concept of emotional intelligence (EI) in the leaders and managers of professional organisations working across various industry context including hospitality, manufacturing, defence, NGOs, academics etc.

The present social and economic context has impacted the functioning and adaptability of professional organisations. The complexity and volatility of environmental change has generated a serious concern about behavioural and emotional competencies of senior and top leadership regarding how to cope up with the challenge of sustainable profitable growth. Leaders’ decision making has become too abrupt and chaotic at personal and professional level. Examples of mental disorders, suicides, divorces, anxiety, fears, sleeplessness is raising questions about the psychological well-being of working 
executives their ability to cope up with work or non-work-related stress. Current observations indicate that executives are earning well but there is a loss of happiness, life satisfaction, harmonious relationship and a culture of mutual trust and support. Hatred and jealously are new normal of organisational behaviour.

Tomorrow’s organisation needs to employ a workforce with rich psychological resources in the form of hope, optimism, resilience, self-management, spirituality, adaptability, and ability to manage stress positively. Such competencies are not only essential at the work place but also at home. In this context, Salovey and Meyer (1990), Goleman (1995) and Bar On (1997) found the relevance of the concept of EI in the process of coping up with the environmental demands and pressure. These proponents of EI say that the ability to handle stresses of modern workplace may be actually more important than intellectual competency of employees. EI draws on a research tradition, which focuses on intelligent behaviour in natural situations, or practical intelligence which is defined as an aggregate of abilities, skills, and competencies thatrepresent collection of knowledge used to cope up with life effectively.

Research studies in the area of emotional intelligence demonstrate that people with high emotional intelligence (a) are able to effectively communicate with one another, (b) are willing to contribute beyond the expectations to the overall growth of the organisation and, (c) work for a common purpose of the organisation. Consequently, it means that EI increases leadership and teaming skills to achieve personal and organisational effectiveness. In Indian context, research studies (e.g., Jain et al., 2014, Jain & Sinha, 2005; Sinha & Jain, 2004) showed the imperatives of EI for organisations in the area of personal effectiveness, employee commitment, psychological health, trust in manager, job satisfaction and organisational effectiveness. Therefore, this programme is designed to help managers to become psychological health and be able to build and lead a team effectively.
