Virtual Practice Makes Real Impact: Developing Emotional Intelligence and Mastering Crucial Conversations

Wednesday, June 23rd @ 12 PM ET

Emotional intelligence is a crucial component for success of modern leaders. Existing development programs offer many useful insights and theories on how to conduct difficult conversations but often fall short on providing an opportunity to practice them in real time. When leaders face such conversations in their work environment, they need to act fast and mistakes can cost them a career.
Join our webinar on June 23rd at Noon ET to learn about a way to integrate highly personalized experiences into your programs based on scalable, affordable, and effective virtual solutions.
In this session, Tim Ziakis from the Center for Creative Leadership (CCL) and Peter Campbell from Mursion Inc. will discuss:
  • Immersive learning experiences that offer real-world, personalized practice are shown to be more engaging and have greater impact. Virtual simulations offer learners opportunities for personalized practice from any location, on any device. And by engaging emotions along with skill-building, this type of immersive training can drive true behavioral change while teaching the high-stakes interpersonal skills needed to thrive in any industry.
  • A use case of CCL’s Accidental Leader program. “Accidental Leaders” are individual contributors who’ve performed well in their solo roles and are consequently thrust into leadership positions. But their success as individuals doesn’t automatically translate to being successful leaders of others. The numbers prove it: according to CCL research, 20% of first-time managers receive a poor reception from their subordinates. Their poor performance — and that of their subordinates — can hurt an organization’s bottom line and weaken the leadership pipeline. Accidental leaders aren’t destined to fail, nor are they poorly equipped by default; however, they benefit greatly from targeted leadership development.
  • A live demonstration of a virtual simulation scenario “Losing Control of Emotions.” Vicariously experience Mursion’s crucial conversation technology. In a national study funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, it was discovered that practicing these essential skills as few as four times on the Mursion platform can set learners on their way to mastery. This training scenario is part of the CCL-Mursion program that delivers field-tested training that can be implemented in as little as four weeks.
We’re looking forward to spending this interactive hour with you. Register today to join your peers on June 23rd!

“The CMED conference provided me an opportunity to both grow as an individual leader and learn new approaches for elevating the delivery and impact of our programs. I was able to implement new ideas immediately! Topics were relevant to current industry challenges and the structured and informal networking provided multiple opportunities for expanding your network of colleagues. Thanks for a great conference!”

“I’ve been attending CMED conference for probably fifteen years. I gain quite a bit from having a variety of centers here ranging from Continuing Education to Executive Education and coming from a variety of universities in Canada, US, Australia and other parts of the world. Also, the big benefit for me is to be able to share best practices with one another. It has been an excellent experience!”
