Emotional Intelligence – The key to Authentic Leadership: Billy Byrne – Executive Coach

The term Authentic Leadership was first coined back in 2003. Emotional Intelligence made its debut some twenty earlier. Since (or as a result of) the economic crisis these leadership topics have become synonymous with a move away from the leadership behaviours that, according to many commentators, contributed to the economic downturn.

In this interactive session, Billy looks at Authentic Leadership from an Emotional Intelligence perspective and explores how Emotional Intelligence can become the foundation for developing more authentic leaders.
