InterContinental Muscat, Oman; 27 th - 28 th October 2008



Gandhi stated "Our greatest power is our freedom to choose our response."   Through Emotional Intelligence one grasps an understanding of behaviours, and the reason why we do and act in certain ways.

We wouldn't dream of letting a pilot fly a passenger aircraft without a flight certificate. The consequences would be disastrous. Nor would we allow doctors, IT specialist, engineers, painters and chefs to do their jobs without the right education. Nevertheless, managers and supervisors without any leadership training are asked to lead and manage others. This can have disastrous effects on the organization like poor motivation, mistakes, loss of money, loss of staff motivation and clients or an unfortunate image and bad decisions, poor communication, frustration, lack of trust, stress and conflict.

Just as it is necessary to teach a pilot to fly, it is necessary to teach a manager or team leader on how to lead.
