What’s the secret to change management—for yourself and the teams you lead? Emotional intelligence. The most gifted leaders manage the mood of their organizations with a keen awareness of emotional intelligence. But knowing what EQ is and knowing how to use it to improve your life are two very different things. This session will help you develop and use the four capacities of emotional intelligence: self-awareness, self-management, social awareness and relationship management.

Cited in Forbes as the world’s premier expert on women’s leadership, Sally Helgesen is an internationally best-selling author, speaker and leadership coach. She is ranked number 3 among the world’s thought leaders by Global Gurus.
Sally’s latest book, Rising Together builds on Sally’s remarkable success with How Women Rise, co-authored with legendary executive coach Marshall Goldsmith, which examines the behaviors most likely to get in the way of successful women as they move forward in their careers. Her other books include The Female Advantage: Women’s Ways of Leadership, hailed as the classic in its field and continuously in print since 1990, and The Web of Inclusion: A New Architecture for Building Great Organizations, cited in The Wall Street Journal as one of the best books on leadership of all time and credited with bringing the language of inclusion into business.
Women’s distinctive strengths and behaviors provide them with many advantages. Yet the very habits that help them early in their careers can hold women back as they seek to rise. Fulfilling your potential is bound to take you beyond your comfort zone. Becoming unstuck requires change – but change, from a psychological perspective can be daunting. Sally will help you rethink old habits and identify self-limiting behaviors that may be standing in your way. She’ll provide tips to help you build a tolerance for emotional and intellectual discomfort, so you can achieve your true potential.
Under Gail McGovern’s direction, the Red Cross has become better prepared to face current and future challenges. Her transformational initiatives steering the organization through multiple high-profile disasters and extensive modernization projects have led to improved financial stability and have expanded the reach of lifesaving Red Cross services.
She’s been named to Fortune’s list of the 50 most powerful women in corporate America two times. What are two of the most powerful leadership lessons she’s gleaned from both the corporate and non-profit sectors? The ability to embrace change and course correct. And the value in leading from the heart.
Change is inevitable. Gail will share personal stories on how she has learned to embrace change and learn from mistakes to help you become a better change leader—for yourself and your team. And at the heart of the ability to lead change is emotional intelligence. Gail will share how female leaders can use EQ to their advantage, leverage their innate ability to lead with their head AND their heart, and tap into your emotions and that of your employees to inspire them.
We’ll break into small groups in Zoom meeting rooms for facilitated discussions on the key takeaways from Gail, share challenges with one another, and help each other create an action plan that benefits from one another’s experience and lessons.
