Great leaders move us. They move us through a basic human process- our emotions. Although they talk of strategy and competition, the great leaders establish a deep emotional connection with others called resonance. They are actively in tune with others around them. Their own levels of emotional intelligence (EI) allow them to create and nurture these resonant relationships. They use their EI as a path to resonant leadership through mindfulness, hope and compassion.
Unfortunately, most people in leadership positions lose their effectiveness over time. Because of the cumulative effect of the damage from chronic stress, effectiveness in leadership and maintaining resonant relationships is not sustainable But, humans can revive themselves, neurologically, hormonally, and emotionally. This process of renewal can reverse the ravages of chronic stress. Through renewal experiences a person can become more cognitive, perceptually and emotionally open. They can innovate and learn. They can make informed, astute decisions. They can be open to motivating others.
Based on decades of research into emotional intelligence competencies, this training will focus on what resonance looks and feels like, as well as ideas as to develop someone’s “resonant leadership” capability, their emotional intelligence, and the experiences of mindfulness, hope, and compassion. The process of change examined will address how to help individuals and teams develop, organizations adapt and grow.
This session will address the following:
What is a great leader and how do we sustain effectiveness?
The experience of “resonant leadership” in an organization, the role of emotional intelligence, mindfulness, hope and compassion
How do we develop it in ourselves and others?
A process for developing sustainable improvement on EI and resonant leadership
How to coach others to develop EI, resonant leadership, mindfulness, hope and compassion
Do you have a leadership role on your team? This training is for supervisors and anyone who manages staff or a team.

Pricing for registration:
This year, we’re excited to pilot a tiered-based fee structure for our BNM trainings (with the exception of all supervision trainings), as we work toward applying an equity lens to all our work. Please choose the pricing that you/your organization can most comfortably afford. You do not have to apply for the subsidized rate.
Subsidized Rate of $10: Because content in the Better Nonprofit Management workshops should be accessible to everyone, we offer this lowest price point for folks served by this option.
Current Rate of $45: We believe people are honest and that those who can pay this standard fee will do so as a gesture of support for our work.
True Cost Rate of $95: For TSNE to recoup all costs associated with producing our Better Nonprofit Management Series, we’d have to register individuals at this price point.
