The IGNITE Emotional Intelligence Enhancement Program

Course Description

IGNITE is an impactful EI enhancement program designed for leaders and individual contributors at all levels who wish to facilitate difficult conversations with confidence; feel less stressed and better equipped to manage high work demands; create a positive work environment for others; and be better equipped to positively influence the decisions, behaviors, and performance of work colleagues.  The program is a deep-dive learning journey consisting of six modules delivered over the course of 6 to 12 months.  Each of the participants takes an assessment at the beginning of the program and again at the end in order to show the positive changes achieved over the course of the program.  Between each of the six modules there are learning assignments which are a review of the material covered in the modules and these are done with alternating learning peer partners.  The combination of learning methodologies, learning journey structure, assessments (pre and post), the program, and the on-the-job- applications of techniques ensure participants experience enduring improvements in their emotional intelligence, leadership, well-being, and relationships.
