The UBC Rehabilitation Science Online Programs and RehabEQ Collaborate to Bring You More Leadership Development Opportunities...

Emotional Intelligence and the Rehabilitation Professional 

As complexity grows in our healthcare context so does the opportunity for rehabilitation professionals to develop the skills to lead effectively. Leaders come in many forms. We all balance competing priorities, manage and foster change, and have the potential to create new and inspiring approaches to navigate unchartered territory.

Research shows that leadership is much deeper than technical skills; it is based in clear core values and beliefs and strong Emotional Intelligence (EI)*. In this campus-based workshop, participants will strengthen their emotional intelligence (EI) and leadership effectiveness through reflection, dialogue and participatory activities that address the components of an EI based leadership framework. Participants will complete an individualized EQ-i 2.0 assessment prior to the workshop then be guided through the individualized “Leadership Report” results during the workshop focusing on targeted areas of EI development. 

Workshop Facilitator: Jason Giesbrecht is a senior health care leader, Certified EI Practitioner, Master of Rehabilitation Science instructor, and Physical Therapist. Learn more about Jason and RehabEQ.

Participants: Clinicians, practice leaders, managers and directors who provide rehabilitation services.
