Peak Performance Leadership Retreat


How do you achieve peak Leadership performance?

Motivated leaders are relying on innovative methods. One is being present and focused, or mindful. The other is using emotional intelligence. Research shows that emotional intelligence matters twice as much as technical ability or IQ when it comes to achieving peak performance.



What is Emotional Intelligence?

Emotional Intelligence is key to high performance at all levels, particularly for outstanding leadership.

Emotional Intelligence is the capacity to recognize our own feelings and those of others, and to manage emotions effectively in ourselves and our relationships.

Emotional Intelligence Leadership Competencies are each a learned capacity. Each contributes to effective performance at work – and often greater satisfaction in life.

There are four parts to the Emotional and Social Intelligence Leadership Competency Model developed by Daniel Goleman and Richard Boyatzis:

  • Self-Awareness

  • Self-Management

  • Social Awareness

  • Relationship Management

Within each of these four domains are learned competencies based on the underlying ability that make people outstanding performers in the workplace. These are skills that can be developed, just as you can improve upon anything that you practice regularly.



At this leadership retreat you will:

  • have a greater understanding of your own emotional intelligence

  • learn skills to develop emotional intelligence

  • gain knowledge on how to apply emotional intelligence to your leadership goals

  • develop focus through mindfulness exercises

  • unplug and spend time in nature
