Ignite emotional intelligence, leadership, well-being and relationships

Ignite helps professionals develop emotional intelligence competencies and improve their impact, influence, leadership and resilience. The tools and techniques covered are applicable within and outside of the workplace, making the program game changing for business and life changing for people.

About the program

Combining learning methodologies with a learning-journey structure, participants experience enduring improvements in their emotional intelligence. There are six core modules of the program. Each session, delivered in a two-hour professionally facilitated format, includes relevant pre-work, cutting-edge research, experiential scenarios and on-the-job applications.

Genos Ignite Program Structure

The program contains a Time 1 and a Time 2 Genos EI Leadership Feedback Report. The assessment at the beginning helps personalise the program and allows participants to receive results and feedback on their current EI Leadership Behaviour. In knowing they will receive a second assessment, this helps participants to have a growth mindset and to understand the importance of ongoing development.

In this video case study, a global cargo handling company shares the game changing and life changing impact Genos EI development has had on their company over the first year.

Using the Ignite program to enhance emotional intelligence, well-being and relationships

This guide is for customers who are self-managing and provides an explanation of each step involved in the administration of the Genos Ignite Program. For facilitators, information about preparation and supporting resources are provided at the beginning of each facilitator guide booklet.

Initial program preparation:

  • Complete the Genos checklist for a successful assessment project
  • Create a new ‘group’ in Genos surveys and select the Ignite program
  • Select the applicable client if you are running the program within a client organisation. This will allow for dual-branding on your program booklets.
  • Refer to the Administrator Video Tutorials for more detailed instructions on setting up the Time 1 assessment and adding program participants.
  • Once participants are added to the survey, Folder Covers, Module 1, Module 2, Module 6 and the Development Tips workbooks can be downloaded for each participant at any point in time.
  • Before the Time 1 Ignite survey commences, Module 1 will need to be facilitated with the participants.
MODULE 1: EMOTIONALLY INTELLIGENT LEADERSHIP
  • Explore the neuroscience of emotions and emotional intelligence
  • Analyse emotionally intelligent leadership behaviours and the impact these can have
  • Identify events that can cause positive and negative decisions and behaviour in others
  • Determine a personal development goal for the program

Finalising the Time 1 Assessment:

  • Now that Module 1 has been completed, participants are expecting to receive their survey invitations, so check these have been sent out successfully.
  • Once the survey has closed and all reports are finalised (and no more survey extensions are needed), you can now download the Reports, Module 3, Module 4 and Module 5 workbooks.
  • Caution: Once the report or any workbook containing results has been shown to the participants, the survey cannot be reopened for further feedback to be added. This will create a comparison of two sets of results shown to the participant, and hence, violating the privacy of the raters. This is why it is important to ensure you are 100% happy with the progress before the T1 survey is finalised and booklets are printed.
  • Note: Debriefs will need to be completed one-on-one with participants if the Leadership 360 Report is used, prior to the Module 2 session where participants can share their insights as a group.
MODULE 2: INSIGHT AND FEEDBACK
  • Reflect on and discuss the approaches taken and outcomes achieved from completing the learning assignment from the previous module
  • Review your emotional intelligence assessment results and identify the actions you could take
  • Explore and practise applying an approach for responding to feedback
MODULE 3: BEHAVIOURAL AGILITY
  • Reflect on and discuss the approaches taken and outcomes achieved from completing the learning assignment from the previous module
  • Evaluate models and concepts for improving our Self–Other Awareness
  • Identify how we can use enhanced Self–Other Awareness to demonstrate situational leadership where we take an approach that is best suited to the type of person and situation we are leading
MODULE 4: AUTHENTICITY
  • Reflect on and discuss the approaches taken and outcomes achieved from completing the learning assignment from the previous module
  • Explore what ‘effective’ and ‘ineffective’ emotional expression looks like
  • Evaluate models and techniques for the facilitation of Authentic Conversations
  • Practise applying these tools and techniques with each other
MODULE 5: BUILDING RESILIENCE
  • Reflect on and discuss the approaches taken and outcomes achieved from completing the learning assignment from the previous module
  • Explore things you can do to build your personal resilience and practise a mindfulness meditation exercise
  • Analyse a reactive technique you can implement to help you effectively respond to strong emotions when they arise
  • Practise applying a model designed to help us help others, that is, an approach we can take in a conversation to help someone find the best possible response to make in a difficult situation

Setting up the Time 2 Assessment:

  • Now that Module 5 has been completed, participants are ready to complete their Time 2 assessment tasks.
  • Go back to Genos Surveys and click ‘New Group’. Now that the selected Client has completed an Ignite T1 Program in Genos Surveys, the option to create an Ignite T2 Program will now be available during the group creation process.
  • During this creation process, you will need to select the applicable Time 1 Ignite Program. You will also be given the option to clone the participants (and raters) from the T1 survey.
  • Now that you have created the Time 2 Ignite survey, you should again adjust the settings for the survey like you would do for any survey group. These include the start and end dates, email content and task settings.
  • For the purpose of measuring participants’ emotional intelligence behaviours for the second time, there is no restriction or requirement around which raters are selected. Rather, the same approach should be adopted as per any Genos EI survey – that is, participants should select people who are:
    • familiar with their leadership behaviour in recent months,
    • prepared to provide them with objective feedback, and
    • asked to participate prior to receiving the system-generated email from Genos.
  • If you would like to give participants the opportunity to re-do the nominations task, choose the ‘Include Participants’ option. Alternatively, if you choose the ‘Include Participants & Raters’ option, you could mention in the survey email to participants that their raters have been imported from their T1 report, but if needed they are able to edit their nominations task if they need to make any updates to the rater list.
  • Reminder: Debriefs will need to be completed one-on-one with participants if the Leadership 360 Report is used, prior to Module 6.
MODULE 6: INSPIRING PERFORMANCE
  • Compare our Time 1 and Time 2 assessment results and determine how we can maintain and build on the outcomes of the program
  • Explore the final competency of emotionally intelligent leadership—Inspiring Performance—and identify opportunities to do so with your team
  • Practise applying an approach that organisations are now using to help boost employee motivation and engagement
