Leadership and Emotional Intelligence: Course on Coursera

By on April 18, 2013 – 8:53 am  3 Comments

Kathryn Britton, MAPP '06, is the associate editor for PPND and recently the book author for the first two books in the PPND series, Resilience: How to Navigate Life's Curves and Gratitude: How to Appreciate Life's Gifts. She also writes regularly for PPND and in her own blog, Positive Psychology Reflections. Full bio. Articles.

What if someone offered you a course on a positive psychology topic that was:

  • Taught by an expert in the field
  • Online
  • Available everywhere in the world
  • Six weeks long
  • Required 3 to 4 hours of work per week
  • You choose when to spend the time
  • Free

Would you be interested?

If so, I recommend that you look into the upcoming Coursera course, Inspiring Leadership through Emotional Intelligence, by Professor Richard Boyatzis, professor of Organizational Behavior at Case Western Reserve University and expert in the field of emotional intelligence, behavior change, and competence.

The course starts May 1 and is open for enrollment now.

    Katherine – it’s interesting but I have just seen some research that was highly critical of mixed models of EI (like the Boyatzis’s)saying that they were just repackaged personality measures. The point being if they are personality based then they are probably not learnable.

    And sorry I can’t find the reference – but this is not the first study to have reservations about mixed models.

    I would like to register for the coming free course


  • Mamoun,

    Inspiring Leadership through Emotional Intelligence starts again on May 5, 2014. You are in luck.
