How Can I Help You?

Emotional Intelligence and Resiliency at Drake University

October 26, 2018


Last night I had the opportunity to speak to a class of undergraduate students who selected a concentration in leadership to accompany their major.


When I asked them why they selected a concentration in leadership, they told me things like they think it will be beneficial or it was easily attainable. Nobody told me they did it because they want to change the world. And I get it, they're 19, 20 and 21 years old. I was clueless at that age.


That set the stage for good conversation around the following topics.

  • Leadership changes the world

  • Self-awareness and self-management are keys to leadership

  • They identified their dominant pattern of behavior and SOCIAL STYLE

  • We discussed each Style's security and confidence NEED and STRESS TRIGGERS

  • We talked about a few dynamics of the human experience that if they are not aware of and if they don't manage, will hurt them. Things like Negativity Bias and Relative Deprivation Theory

  • We wrapped up discussing five different stress-management strategies and keys to being resilient and adaptable

It takes a village!
