The Next Frontier of Emotional Intelligence

The Next Frontier of Emotional Intelligence: Rewiring the Brain

This On-Demand event was originally presented on January 25, 2023 (60 min)


The lack of emotional intelligence (EI) is one of the biggest derailers of leadership and employee effectiveness (and a common headache for HR leaders). Thus, emotional intelligence development is commonly a top priority in organizations.

Unfortunately, traditional emotional intelligence development efforts fall short of moving the needle on EI. This is because EI is commonly treated as a skill-based ability rather than what neuroscience is finding: EI is actually a neural-based ability. When EI is viewed as a neural-based ability, we can better diagnose EI deficiencies and treat them in a manner that actually results in the improvement of EI.

In an insightful and engaging session, Mike and Ryan are going to discuss the next frontier of EI thought leadership and development (the neuroscience behind EI) and help you make meaningful improvements in EI within your organization.

Attendees will learn

  • Of the vital importance of emotional intelligence.
  • The reason why traditional emotional intelligence development efforts are deficient.
  • That emotional intelligence is not a skills-based ability; it is a neural-based ability.
  • The common causes of diminished emotional intelligence.
  • How to help leaders and employees actually improve their emotional intelligence.

Leadership training is a $366 billion global industry. Despite that, 75% of organizations say their leadership development programs are not very effective. A primary reason for the lack of development effectiveness is because they almost solely focus on horizontal development (think “tooling up” one’s talent) instead of vertical development (think “leveling up” one’s character). Ryan Gottfredson helps organizations vertically develop their leaders so that they can lead and operate from a higher, more effective level.
