The concept of a leader who is an individual that provides direction while others simply follow is no longer useful. Today we must all be leaders with the ability to work collaboratively.
Madison, Wis. (PRWEB) March 26, 2013
The University of Wisconsin-Extension Center for Inclusive and Engaged Leadership will offer a two-day workshop on Emotional Intelligence and Diversity with Jorge Cherbosque from the University of California Los Angeles. He is coauthor of the highly successful book Emotional Intelligence for Managing Results in a Diverse World. Cherbosque has provided workshops to educational, nonprofit, for profit, and government organizations including Mayo Clinic, Toyota, Medtronic, Intel, University of California, San Francisco, and the University of California, Irvine. The workshop takes place in Madison, Wis. April 25-26.
The Emotional Intelligence and Diversity workshop will enhance the skills and knowledge that administrators, educators, and managers need to create and sustain engaged and inclusive institutions. Participants will leave the workshop with concrete skills and action steps that they can take back to their individual workplaces and communities.
“The concept of a leader who is an individual that provides direction while others simply follow is no longer useful,” said Stephan Gilchrist, director of the Center for Inclusive and Engaged Leadership. “Today we must all be leaders with the ability to work collaboratively and fully engage each other across diverse backgrounds and perspectives to create healthy and creative organizations.”
