The MCW Leadership Academy focuses on developing and supporting their faculty as leaders within the academic health professions. This program brings current, relevant business and leadership skills to their developing leaders.
Kelly Renz facilitated an Emotional Intelligence (EQ) session with the MCW Leadership Academy. Participants learned about the four Core EQ Skills including self-awareness, social awareness, self-management, and relationship management. Their session had a heightened focus on learning strategies to increase participant’s self-awareness so they can show up better as a leader. Some of the strategies participants learned included assessing their self-awareness, understanding internal vs. external strategies, and recognizing and managing your emotions.
MCW Leadership Academy participants left the session with a better understanding of their self-awareness and how they can use it to improve their emotional intelligence (EQ).
