Using an Emotional Intelligence framework, Aspiring Leaders can use this series of 2 workshops to explore Personal Competences (intrapersonal skills) and Social Competences (interpersonal skills) within the context of leading themselves and others.
I enjoyed most the practical implementation of the theories and concepts; the course administrator is excellent and she delivered all the points clearly.
The personality style inventory and Concern vs Influence exercise made me more aware of my strengths and weaknesses.
I am more aware of myself now and how I communicate with other people, specially who are different from me.
You made me ask myself what what I want and why I am doing my Phd. You reminded me of the aims and objectives of doing my PhD. This is important, as at this stage, I had forgotten the ‘why’ question.
I have already recommended this course to my friend. As a PhD student you should be a leader of your PhD and get your supervisor’s team motivated in your PhD. This is important as your supervisor already has their job and they are busy.
I would recommend this course because it allows you to explore new ideas and expands the very specific knowledge that most PhD students have. The skills/knowledge will be exceptionally useful after the PhD/securing a job.
