Brought to you by the Distinguished Leaders committee of the Columbia Business School Alumni Club of New York (copying the following announcement from that site):
Leadership Through Self-Awareness and Emotional Intelligence
In a weekend, learn how to develop your personal leadership skills, self-awareness, and emotional intelligence through the latest advances in cognitive behavioral science, evolutionary psychology, and positive psychology.
While business schools and corporations are increasingly focusing on personal leadership, self-awareness, and emotional intelligence as foundations for leading others, many MBAs never had the opportunity to take a formal course in personal leadership.
Joshua Spodek, MBA, PhD, has developed a two-day weekend workshop in just this area. His experiential course combines advances in cognitive behavioral science, evolutionary psychology, and positive psychology with successful business leadership practices.
Following a previously sold-out session, participants had onlyÂ positive Â commentsÂ about the personal learning and insights gained.

Day one: Â Â Saturday, September Â 21: 10AM-4PM Â (Coffee and lunch included)
Day two: Â Â Â Sunday, Â September 22: 10AM-4PM Â Â (Coffee and lunch included)

Benefits of the course include improved:Â
- Personal leadership skills, particularly self-awareness and emotional intelligence
- Interpersonal skills of the core leadership class, such as decision-making, negotiation, perceiving others, influence, motivating others, and teamwork
- Ability to transform your greatest challenges into both professional and personal growth
- Awareness of your values and what brings you meaning, purpose, importance, and happiness, both professionally and personally
- Ability to focus on what is important, professionally and personally, decreasing time and resources wasted on unimportant things
- Ability to experience reward from your efforts
- Calmness, patience, and understanding
You will leave the course with tools to continue your development on your own as well as a network of like-minded people, both as resources and for accountability. The course also makes all other leadership resources â€“ books, videos, seminars, etc â€“ more valuable through better understanding their foundations.
