Sightful holds workshops to raise your emotional intelligence and align with your deepest purpose.
We teach the subtle skills that define 21st leadership: empathy, intuition, authenticity and integrity. These workshops are transmissions; you will experience resonance and connection. They’re also hands-on, practical and fun.
We have regular programming. But we also love designing programs to meet your needs.
Emotional Intelligence 101
Emotional Intelligence is the ability to identify and manage your own emotions; and to understand and skillfully interact with others in a way that respects their emotions. It includes mindfulness, self awareness, self mastery, social awareness and social skills. But what does all this actually mean in practice? In this workshop, our focus is not on abstract concepts. It’s about trying out these basic tools in a way that feels true to who you really are. We give the group an experience of each of the tenets of EI so that you can feel how they work yourself, in the moment and in your body. Then we point the way for continuing to grow your EQ. We can do a broad overview, or we can zero in on one skill in particular, as suits your needs.
Empathy is the ability to understand and experience the feelings and thoughts of another without them having to communicate explicitly. It is a practice of deep listening and focused attention. Empathy has always been a fundamental human social skill. Now companies are seeing how crucial it is in everything from sales and customer service to UX design and marketing strategy.
We teach the basics of empathy: what it is, how it works, why it matters and how to employ it in your work and life. We’ll give you the tools to communicate more empathetically and process “difficult” emotions at work--both your own emotions and the emotions of others. After the workshop, you will immediately see improvements in your day-to-day relationships.
Clarify Your Vision
In these times of chaos and extreme transition, many of us are lacking a vision. But, having a clear vision is critical for intelligent evolution. Our belief is that the not-knowing is the perfect starting point for real innovation to happen. We actually do know what we want and where we need to go. We just need to create the space for it to emerge.
This workshop takes teams out of reactive mind and into the imagination. What is the future we want to see? What is the path to get there? How can we truly make a difference ourselves or through our organization? We use visioning exercises, deep dialogue, art and creative expression to unleash the collective intelligence and design the more beautiful future our hearts know is possible.
Intuition and Inner Knowing
Sometimes called the Sixth Sense, intuition is the wisdom of the body speaking to you. In a hyper-rational world–obsessed with proof and data–intuition is a lost art we need to reclaim. It is a knowing that transcends reason. And it may be the most important tool we have to make big decisions. Remember that time when you ignored your intuition and regretted it?
Through a series of exercises, we’ll (re)learn learn how to listen to ourselves so that we can navigate this world from our deepest inner knowing. The result is greater confidence and clarity--essential for leaders today.
