Leader’s Role: Managing Workplace Dynamics. Some Notes
Linda Snyder facilitated a great workshop on Leader’s Role: Managing Workplace Dynamics the discussion was lively and the interaction led to learning and application.
Linda began with an introduction to emotional intelligence and its application to leadership.
Exploring Core Attitudes: a part of EI is valuing yourself and others. The core attitudes that underpin development of EI are:
- Self-Regard – the degree to which you accept and value yourself
- Regard for others – the degree to which you accept and value others as people, as being distinct from liking or approving of what they may do and how they behave.
This is broken into 4 Quadrants
Using the EI and leadership perspective we discussed the overlapping circles of the Who: What: How diagram.
Talking about how each can be in balance with people in organizations to ensure that continued commitment and work is being completed.
Know that we know about ourselves as leaders the discussion turned to setting boundaries and what we tolerate and view as other peoples boundaries and tolerations.
Walking through 3 types of boundaries (illustrated above) we developed examples of there usefulness and what we tend to tolerate as OD and HR leaders.
Our time concluded with this final model.
Terms are in descending order:
Thinking / Feeling
This was used to frame the conversation and return back to the Leaders role of Managing Workplace Dynamics.
