    Posted 28 days ago

    Dear Colleagues,

    COB Organizational Wisdom Studio continues featuring experimental film-projects that explore the question: How would an emotionally intelligent leader look like in the midst of this chaotic era involving challenges such as great resignation, COVID-19, return to physical work, and more?

    This week's episode features the film titled "The Newbie" (2020), produced by Emotional Responders, which explores Leader-Member Exchange Theory as it relates to emotional intelligence.  The film illustrates how starting a new job can be extra challenging in COVID-19 period and why newly-hired employees can be especially vulnerable to catch other employees' feelings of loneliness. Then it shows how emotional intelligence can help leaders recognize and effectively address other employees' loneliness in a timely manner. The film is produced by Human Resource Management students in a class on Leading with Emotional Intelligence at the Sacramento State University

    In a subsequent commentary session Professor Sigal Barsade from the Wharton School, interviews with co-hosts Ms. Elisabeth Nunziato and Professor Hakan Ozcelik to provide theoretical and practical insights about how emotionally intelligent leadership can make a difference in the effective socialization of newcomers and more senior lonely employees in a pandemic.

    Please share these Wisdom Studio episodes with colleagues, students, and others at a time when we all need more emotional intelligence in our organizations. Enjoy the show!
