In our competitive, challenging and constantly changing business landscape, great leadership makes the difference between mediocre results and great achievement. A company of leaders innovates, grows and excels. Leaders are effective communicators, they are influential, they know how to delegate, manage teams effectively and resolve conflict with ease. In other words, they have high emotional intelligence (EQ) that allows them to lead themselves and others towards a shared vision.

Leadership is not a class you’ll find in high school and rarely in college or business school. Most people enter the workforce with little if any training on how to be a great leader. If they are good at their job and land a promotion, then they will likely manage a team without the knowledge to do it effectively. Plenty of smart, talented people get stuck on the corporate ladder simply because they are not effective leaders or team members.

Leadership skills are essential for high level growth and success in business both individual and organizationally. The good news is Leadership and Emotional Intelligence can be taught, developed and improved over time.

Irené’s Background & Story…

Irené worked for several years as an executive recruiter and then became involved in other areas of human resources such as training, succession planning, coaching and employee relations. As she moved into more senior roles, she saw firsthand how leadership – or in some cases, the lack of it – was usually the biggest factor in determining the success or failure of the team, department or organization. As a result, she recognized a huge opportunity and became passionate about helping leaders change their behavior and the behavior of those they manage.

Her experience at The Walt Disney Company before joining Acacia Research, a Pasadena based incubator in the early dot-com days, enabled her to develop her skills in training, talent acquisition, leadership development and change management to bring about lasting improvement in any organization that values growth. She has trained for and consulted with everything from high-tech start-ups to mature “brick & mortar” companies in various fields, including entertainment, bio-tech, financial services and healthcare.
