Collaborating for Success

Developing Emotional Intelligence for Boards of Directors

Similar to any other group of people working towards a common goal, the success of a Board of Directors is, in large part, dependent upon the ability of board members to work collaboratively, to encourage and promote participation of all board members, and to communicate in a constructive and open manner. Group emotional intelligence refers to the collective ability of members to identify, understand, and respond appropriately to the emotions of the group, while respecting and acknowledging each member’s perspective. The emotional competence of a board determines how well it functions in carrying out its mission and goals, and it serves to develop a greater sense of trust and cohesiveness among the members.

Dr. Hambley is available for presentations on developing emotional intelligence for Boards of Directors and offers workshops that serve to improve communication and collaboration among boards of directors at board retreats and special board trainings.
