I am an HR Professional

In a recent poll of HR leaders, 65% said their biggest challenges were related to people issues, and yet, only 8% of the respondents felt they really had the training to deal with these pressing problems.

 

I am an HR Professional

What's it like in your organization?

As an HR leader in your organization, you are asked to do more than ever before. You are probably responsible for driving corporate culture and expected to build leadership bench strength, prepare for succession, manage change, execute strategy, and encourage innovation and creativity. As well, your role most likely requires you to help build healthy, happy work teams with high levels of employee engagement.  All this while you manage the regulatory and day to day tasks required by HR departments.

As you and other HR professionals are asked to do more with less in your organization, from the tactical to the strategic, consider how much time you would gain in your daily routine if the leaders and employees of your company had high social and emotional intelligence.

Social and emotional intelligence is the ability to be aware of our own emotions and those of others, in the moment, and to use that information to manage ourselves and manage our relationships.

Individuals with higher levels of social and emotional intelligence

  • are more productive
  • are healthier
  • have more positive relationships with their co-workers
  • are better able to adapt to change in the workplace
  • drive higher levels of employee engagement

Companies who invest in social and emotional intelligence realize their return on investment quickly as evidenced by

  • greater employee retention
  • increased sales and profits
  • reduced healthcare costs
  • increased employee satisfaction and engagement
  • reduced conflict and dysfunction in the organization

While the strategies or the systems of the business are important, research is showing that the key to profitability and financial success is directly correlated to the character and skill of individual managers.

Managers and leaders with high scores in the social and emotional intelligence competencies of communication, building bonds, building trust, and inspirational leadership, are better equipped to manage their employees in a manner that brings out the best in individuals and teams.

When leaders in the organization are successfully managing their relationships with their employees, your time is freed up from dealing with employee-relations issues and disciplinary issues, allowing you to be more strategic and proactive in your HR leadership role.

Warren Bennis, one of the world's foremost authorities, researchers and authors on the topic of leadership, had this to say about emotional intelligence: “In the fields I have studied, emotional intelligence is much more powerful than IQ in determining who emerges as a leader. IQ is a threshold competence. You need it, but it doesn't make you a star. Emotional Intelligence can.” As an HR leader you can positively change your organization's culture by improving the social and emotional intelligence of leaders and staff.

And the beautiful part? Social and emotional intelligence can be learned!

What you will learn:

  • How HR leaders can play a critical role in influencing the business of the organization
  • How to create a program that drives a culture of social and emotional intelligence
  • How to work with difficult employees
  • How to develop social and emotional intelligence in teams and individuals

There are two certification options you can pursue:

Coach Certification Course

Our Coach Certification Course is designed to provide coach training to successfully bring social and emotional intelligence into your workplace. You will become certified to purchase and administer the Social + Emotional Intelligence Profile (SEIP)® and will take away a toolkit with over 200 pages of tip sheets, worksheets, training exercises, mini-assessments and other practical tools, as well as a PowerPoint presentation you can customize and use in training programs in your organization. You will also earn 12 HRCI recertification credits or 12 PDCs from SHRM. To register for an upcoming Coach Certification Course, click here:  http://the-isei.com/all_course_list.aspx

Corporate Certification Program

Our Corporate Certification Program offered to leaders and HR professionals. The Corporate Certification Program is a unique offering designed to support organizations as they leverage the influence of social and emotional intelligence to improve employee engagement, interpersonal skill, and global productivity.  With this certification, business leaders can introduce, measure, and improve their organization’s universal social and emotional acumen, by administering, interpreting, and debriefing the Social and Emotional Intelligence Profile (SEIP)®. 

Business accreditation requires completion of a two day, three-hour training program.  We offer this training online with no up front fee.  Participation is open to all members of the leadership team and any employees that may be asked to debrief SEIPs®.

(It is important to not that this certification is distinct from our Coach Certification Course (above), which has a dual impact.  The Coach Certification Course certifies participants to use (administer, interpret, and debrief) SEIPs and trains the Institute’s coaching methodology.  Participants leave the Coach Certification Course with the prestigious designation as certified Social and Emotional Intelligence Coaches® and recertification credits from ICF, HRCI, or SHRM.)

Please contact us at info@the-isei.com to pursue our Corporate Certification Program.


Both certifications will certify you to purchase and administer the Social + Emotional Intelligence Profile (SEIP)® that will make it possible to support your employees in:

  • becoming more emotionally self aware
  • managing their emotional responses in the workplace
  • building self confidence and personal power
  • managing stress and living more intentionally
  • building trust and bonds
  • developing key leadership skills

Fostering greater social and emotional intelligence in the workplace begins with awareness, and one of the best tools for helping individual employees become aware of their strengths and potential development needs in this arena is to provide them with an easy to administer self assessment or 360. We highly recommend the SEIP®, the most comprehensive, statistically-reliable, scientifically-validated instrument on the market today. Based on over 10 years of research, the SEIP® identifies an individual's social and emotional intelligence strengths and development opportunities.

The SEIP® measures the 26 distinct social and emotional intelligence competencies identified as critical for individuals, teams and organizations.

In addition to identifying areas of strength and areas for improvement, the instrument provides detailed descriptions of emotionally and socially intelligent behaviors when present and when lacking, as well as extensive suggestions for development, helpful for HR professionals and the individual receiving the results.

The 78-item SEIP® is easy to administer. It's available online as both a self-report and 360 multi-rater format and the results are available immediately for download as a full-color PDF report.


Or, have us come present a social + emotional intelligence workshop or seminar for your annual company retreat! Each participant will complete the Social + Emotional Intelligence Profile (SEIP)® as part of the workshop package!

The Social + Emotional Intelligence Certification Course Fee of $1,595 includes all course materials and a PowerPoint presentation you may customize for your organization and use for lunch talks, training, workshops, and/or to introduce Social + Emotional Intelligence into your organization. You will also receive a complete suite of tools (worksheets, exercises, mini- assessments, tip sheets, etc.) to use with your employees, an opportunity to take the Social + Emotional Intelligence Profile for yourself, and certification to administer it to your employees.
