“Great leaders move us. They ignite our passion and inspire the best in us. When we try to explain why they are so effective, we speak of strategy, vision, or powerful ideas. But the reality is…Great leadership works through the emotions” – Daniel Goleman
Effective leadership is not as much what you do but rather how you do it. Using the Emotional Intelligence Inventory (EQi), we evaluate your current leadership style from the principles of Emotional Intelligence such as self awareness, self regulation, motivation, empathy, and social skills. We will also utilize the MBTI assessment tool to determine your preferences for relating to others, communication style, and how you recharge.
Together our goal is to gain a clear picture of where you are now and where you want to go, what goals you want to achieve, and the best way to get there. Included are:
- Emotional Intelligence Inventory (EQi)
- Myers Briggs Type Indicator Assessment (“MBTI”)
- Review of results from both assessments and discussion of what they reveal about your leadership style
- 360-degree evaluation and feedback
- Identify areas for improvement and develop measurements of success
- Development of Leadership Development Plan and plan for completion
- Weekly check-in to clarify goals and discuss progress
- Package includes reading material to supplement goals (weekly books or other literature related to leadership and understanding MBTI type)

Emotional Intelligence Inventory
Isn’t the use of “emotions” and “intelligence” in the same sentence an oxymoron? Not surprisingly, I get asked that question a lot. The answer is no but it’s easy to fathom why some think so. Historically, intelligence quotient (IQ) has been used as a predictor of success in many industries. We reason that if we are “smart enough”, we will succeed in our role or in our business. While intelligence is important, equating it with leadership competency can be a significant error. Leadership requires you to understand, engage and motivate your team, deal well with conflict, and develop creative solutions to complex problems. Emotional Intelligence is a strong tool to meet these requirements and for developing many other effective leadership skills.
Why is MBTI important in your success as a leader? MBTI helps you see preferences and patterns in your behavior, both as a leader and as an individual. Awareness of the patterns that make up behavior is a starting point for change. They reveal probable and likely issues and give you a great lens for understanding how you can approach change within the context of these trends and patterns. Knowing yourself better helps you uncover blind spots in your leadership style and is tremendously useful in team-building, conflict management, and leadership development. MBTI helps you uncover your strengths and areas where you have the opportunity to grow.
Where MBTI focuses on your relationship with yourself and the outside world, 360-degree feedback helps you see how the outside world relates to you, particularly your team. A confidential evaluation is given to your team assessing their experience working with you, the results are tabulated into a concise report, and we review its contents together. This type of assessment highlights blind spots in your leadership style – called blind spots because you can’t see them! This feedback is completely confidential and is a great tool for developing the Leadership Development Plan for our work together. We will take the MBTI and 360-degree feedback results, use that information to determine both short- and long-term goals, and help you meet those goals throughout our coaching engagement.
It’s easy to get off track or get stuck on a particular problem or idea you’re working on. Our calls and visits help move the process along, hold you accountable for your results, and give you a confidential partner to work with. Leadership can be a lonely place. With Mosaic, you have an experienced mentor, someone you can trust for direction, and a place to talk thru issues confidentially.
Leadership Development Plan:
The Leadership Development Plan helps you see where you want to go and gives you a detailed, step-by-step plan for getting there. This work we’re doing together isn’t nearly as good if you don’t know the results you want to achieve. Our work together will define your measurements for success.
