Great leaders know themselves and pay close attention to the impact they have on others.

So says Suzanne Rotondo, a leadership expert and executive coach who will provide training for University of Oregon officers of administration at an upcoming forum.

The OA Strategic Leadership Forum 2013, April 15 or April 17, is titled: “Emotional Intelligence…How the Best Leaders Build, Maintain and Even Restore Trust in Times of Change.”

Rotondo, of RedShift Leadership, was formerly executive director of Teleos Leadership Institute, a global leader in emotional intelligence consulting. In addition to working with clients in the private sector, she has led efforts to introduce emotional intelligence curricula into high schools and leading medical schools.

Her clients include MTV Networks, Fox Chase Cancer Center, Comedy Central, USF College of Medicine, United States Steel and Brookings Institute Executive Education.

Forum participants will be led through examples of emotional intelligence and will have an opportunity to develop self-awareness around core beliefs and habitual behaviors that help or hinder leadership efforts. Training will include:

  • reflecting on your personal leadership approach;
  • identifying your span of control, recognizing how behavior and moods can impact others;
  • acknowledging your own attitudes toward change and recognizing how constant demands affect you and those you work with.

Participants are encouraged to register early, as seating is limited; there is no charge to register. The forum runs from 8:30 a.m. to noon Monday, April 15 or Wednesday, April 17 in the Ford Alumni Center Ballroom.

The event is sponsored by Finance and Administration, Human Resources, the OA Council and HR/Organizational Development and Training
