Leadership Through Emotional Intelligence

Programme Overview

Leadership skills are, in many contexts—the workplace, classrooms, politics, volunteer organizations, and even within families—recognizable in those who lead: People who take initiative, who have a strong vision, and who can provide direction, strategize, plan, and accomplish goals to achieve their vision are generally considered good leaders.

But what about other kinds of skills that make up a good leader? Not just professional skills—you may be highly trained and proficient in your field—but skills that contribute to your ability to work well with others and to lead your team to success? That’s where emotional intelligence comes in, which we can define as “the ability to accurately perceive your own and others’ emotions; to understand the signals that emotions send about relationships; and to manage your own and others’ emotions successfully.”

Great leaders move us by tapping into a basic human characteristic—our emotions. Research has shown that exceptional leaders, executives, and managers are not just smart or lucky, but more frequently rely on their emotional intelligence. Emotional intelligence is the ability to understand, motivate, and develop yourself and others. Most importantly, emotional intelligence competencies can be taught and learned.

In addition, leaders who demonstrate a keen understanding of their own emotions and can anticipate how others experience their leadership are better positioned to respond effectively to the demands of their environment. Outstanding leaders, executives and managers distinguish themselves by their ability to understand and manage themselves and to understand and work with others. It is a given that technical and functional expertise is the foundation for effective performance. But emotional intelligence (EI) competencies overwhelmingly distinguish outstanding leaders from average performers. Participants in this program will learn the concept of EI, its component competencies and how to use EI to stimulate outstanding performance and leadership.
Finally, in business and in life, success often comes down to the ability to influence others. Influence is the most fundamental of the social intelligence competencies, along with empathy, which predict effectiveness in almost every managerial, leadership and professional job. The relationships they cultivate with others have powerful effects on the outcomes they achieve, whether they are promoting a new idea, motivating staff, selling a product or service, or negotiating the terms of a deal.

Box 20378, 2151 Nicosia, Cyprus.

At the same time, we wish everybody know that we are committed to ensuring that access to personal information in our records is completely secured. Therefore, for the purpose of preventing unauthorised access or disclosure of classified information, we have put in place adequately safe physical, electronic and managerial procedures to control all access to our information databases.

2. Registrations

This Service is intended to collect information for your participation in our programmes. However, we cannot guarantee your automatic participation or seat reservation to our programmes, considering that practical limitations may arise. CIIM reserves the right to change or cancel the dates of the programme, without your consent. In the event of cancellation or modification of the time schedule of the programme, it will be our duty to give you adequate notification for the any schedule changes.

3. Tuition and Programme Fees

Tuition is due upon your acceptance by the CIIM into the programme you have applied for. However, prices are subject to change without notice. Furthermore, if you fail to settle your invoice prior the commencement of the programme, CIIM reserves the right to cancel/withdraw your application and refuse your participation. Additionally, if you fail to settle your invoice,  even after the commencement of the programme, CIIM reserves the right to proceed with legal actions for damages.

4. Cancellation of Registration

Cancellations must be received in writing. Cancellations received more than seven (7) days prior to a program’s start date will not incur penalties. On the other hand, for cancellations received less than seven (7) days prior to a program’s start date, you will incur a charge of 100 percent of the full tuition. In this case though, substitutions may be welcomed considering the service capabilities of CIIM. If a participant or a participating company fails to attend the programme they have applied for without any prior notification, even if a withdrawal occurs on or after a program start date, full tuition may be forfeited.

5. Refunds and Transfers of Registrations

Participants who would like to request a full refund for their participation, or need to transfer their participation to another CIIM programme, may be eligible to do so considering that the start date of the original programme is no less than seven (7) days. Requests to refunds received less than seven (7) days prior to the start date of the programme, will be forfeited. However, in this case though, transfers of registrations may be welcomed considering the service capabilities of CIIM.

6. HRDA Subsidy

The Human Resource Development Authority (HRDA) provides a subsidy i.e. partial or full tuition coverage, to organisations participating with their employees in the Authority's programmes, only if they can meet the Authority's criteria. In order to confirm your eligibility to participate in the Authority's programmes, we provide you with the Authority's programme form for which you need to return to CIIM fully completed. If for whatever reason, the HRDA refuses to provide a subsidy for your attendance to our programmes, you and your company will be liable to immediately reimburse CIIM with the gross fees, which were supposed to be covered by the HRDA subsidy. If you fail to meet your legal costs to CIIM, we reserve the right to proceed with legal actions for damages.

2. Governing Law

These Terms shall be governed and construed in accordance with the laws of Cyprus, without regard to its conflict of law provisions.
