At the Institute for Health and Human Potential (IHHP), our programs can be delivered through your certified in-house trainers. However, sometimes organizations don’t have the manpower or the skillset to roll out and facilitate our leadership programs. There are also times when a senior audience wants the “outside experts”.

Whatever the reason to have IHHP facilitators deliver your programs, it is important that the program be delivered by strong, business and life-experienced facilitators who can walk the talk and provide information relevant to you and your organization (specific even to your industry).

For this reason, IHHP offers an amazing group of seasoned, knowledgeable and fully certified facilitators who will help you deliver a culture-changing program to your organization.

We will work with you to ensure we provide a facilitator that is a perfect match for your audience. All of our facilitators are exceptional (or they wouldn’t be working with us!). The idea is to make a match based on your industry, demographics and learning objectives.

Performing Under Pressure: The Science of Emotional Intelligence – Exclusively for Certified Trainers

We know that leadership and personal development training is best achieved in the classroom. We also know the reality of a national and global workforce.  It’s not always possible to get people together, face-to-face in a classroom.

To address the need to provide training to a global, virtual workforce, we partnered with one of our key clients – UnitedHealth Group – to offer a virtual facilitator-led version of our world-renowned Emotional Intelligence program.

Using state-of-the art technology, including virtual break-out rooms, whiteboards, and many more features, we’ve created a powerful, engaging and sustained learning environment.

The EI Virtual Program is available for Clients who have internally certified trainers and their own virtual platform.

The EI virtual program consists of four or five 2-hour virtual sessions that are be spread over a period of weeks, which provides a sustained learning experience. EI Virtual can be delivered by your certified internal trainers through our Enterprise License Program.

The virtual classes are designed as highly interactive and integrated modules. When combined with our one-on-one Coaching and EI360 assessment, the EI Virtual program will drive real behavior change:

  • Module #1 – Introduction to the science of emotional intelligence
  • Module #2 – Managing emotions under pressure
  • Module #3 – The value of emotional connection
  • Module #4 – EI360 assessment and debrief (optional)
  • Module #5 – Creating high impact emotional connections

Feeling the PRESSURE of virtual training delivery?  So were we!

IHHP-IM-pressuregauge2_WEB-smFor many of you reading this, you have been delivering classroom based training for years.  You know what works, you know how to read a room, and you have a sixth sense about the energy in the room and level of engagement.  You know who needs more time to reflect and who needs to share.  It is these instincts and strengths that make you a great trainer and gives you the confidence to deliver a learner centric program. It is because of these strengths that most of us feel a little (or a lot) anxious when asked to facilitate a training program virtually – especially one that we love delivering in-person. Read more.

Emotional Intelligence Workshops

IHHP_EI_Icon_WEB-smBy providing our emotional intelligence workshop in a virtual environment, we enable you to reach more of your global workforce in a much more cost-effective manner, while still ensuring a powerful learning experience that will drive real behavior change.

Upon request we can develop a virtual classroom solution for – Performing Under Pressure: Doing Your Best When it Matters Most and Performing Under Pressure: The Three Conversations of Leadership.

EI360_Square_WEB-smThe EI360TM is a fully web-enabled, multi-rater tool that offers a powerful way to assess individual strengths and developmental needs in the core competencies of Emotional Intelligence.

 

EI360 screen captureWhy EI360TM assessment and feedback?

Individuals can become so caught up in day-to-day pressures and responsibilities that they miss the cues from others that are part of ongoing feedback – over time an individual’s own view of themselves can often become narrow and biased. Research clearly reveals that feedback solely ‘from above’ does not paint an accurate or relevant picture of performance and behaviour. The ‘boss’ does not always see what other team members see.

IHHP’s EI assessment tools are a systematic method of collecting critical information from a range of sources in order to create a more complete, unbiased picture of individual performance, especially when people are under pressure.

 

These are the key aspects of the EI360TM assessment :

  1. It’s easy to complete. People don’t have a lot of time for long assessments, so our Emotional Intelligence assessment tool is designed to take the participants approximately 10-15 minutes to complete and the rater as little as 5-10 minutes
  2. EI360TM Feedback Report:
    Upon completion of the EI360TM assessment the individual receives a report summarizing the key multi-rater assessment data from co-workers (manager, peers, direct reports, key clients) as well as family members and friends. It allows individuals to:

    • Gauge their level of Emotional Intelligence in all aspects of their lives;
    • Compare their self-perception with that of others (at work and at home);
    • Better understand how their behavior positively or negatively affects; performance; and
    • Be alerted to potential triggers and possible blind spots
  3. The Team EI360TM Profile provides data on emotional intelligence at the team level. This can be a very powerful method to diagnose strengths and shortcomings within a team and help build the competencies that improve collaboration and performance within an intact team
  4. The EI360TM assessment is utilized in conjunction with our Emotional Intelligence training and/or together with one-on-one coaching. The assessment is an essential tool to help the participant develop their action plan and the specific competencies they need to work on. Combining the Emotional Intelligence training program and the EI360TM assessment greatly increases the participants’ learning and the overall success of the program

Our powerful Emotional Intelligence training combined with the EI360TM assessment and follow-up coaching gives the participants the insight, time, personal attention and accountability they need in order to make real and lasting changes in their performance and leadership in both their professional and personal lives.

“Corporations believe that coaching helps keep valuable employees, and that the dollar investment in it is far less than the cost of replacing an employee.” -David A. Thomas, Fitzhugh, Professor of Business Administration, Harvard Business School

Why Coaching?

An elite athlete doesn’t train themselves. He or she depends very heavily on a coach to help them perform under the immense pressure they face. Why should you be any different?

Participants in the Institute for Health and Human Potential (IHHP) programs come to understand the importance of creating new brain neural pathways to develop more constructive behaviors. Coaching is essential to this process. A Coach supports and encourages participants to “step in” during high pressure situations so new skills and competencies can be developed. This in turn makes it easier the next time a similar challenge or situation arises.

A Coach is committed to helping develop excellence in leadership coaching and performance under pressure – both in business and in life. They ensure that the skills developed will be equally as beneficial to work relationships as they are to those with family members and friends. A Coach encourages change for a life lived more fully.

How Does a Coach Help?read-case-study

Our Coaches act as sounding boards and accountability partners for clients as they work on personal and professional challenges. Combining the results-based principles of our training programs with their own unique knowledge and experience, IHHP’s Executive Coaches support and help guide individuals and groups to the solutions that work best for them.

 

Specifically, a Coach will help individuals:

  • Leverage their strengths to sharpen their leadership skills
  • Hold themselves accountable to work and life goals, stay focused, and monitor how well they are achieving these goals
  • Learn to see situations from the perspective of others
  • Develop action plans for moving forward while anticipating and overcoming obstacles
  • Improve their ability to communicate clearly and create strong relationships
  • Develop the skills to coach others – including their children! – to improve their personal leadership skills
  • Increase their ability to handle adversity and setbacks in business (and life)
  • Learn to deal more effectively with difficult people
  • Increase opportunities for personal and professional success

Our certified coaches provide coaching on all of our leadership training and pressure management programs:

  • Performing Under Pressure: The Science of Emotional Intelligence
  • Performing Under Pressure: Doing Your Best When it Matters Most
  • Performing Under Pressure: The Three Conversations of Leadership

Our E.I. Coaching Certifications are designed to prepare Organizational internal coaches to skillfully coach clients after attending the program ‘Performing Under Pressure:  The Science of Emotional Intelligence’ and taking our EI 360™ Assessment.  The goal?  To help your organization’s clients “increase personal leadership by learning how to manage their emotional brain in the most difficult moments. This will allow them to influence and engage others, and connect with them in a more meaningful way.”

Developing your internal coaches to follow up after training will allow them to use our EI 360™ feedback tool with your employees/internal clients and will also provide an effective, sustainable program to help meet your organization’s learning and leadership development goals.
