Wright Graduate University's graduate certificate in social intelligence for leadership and coaching enhances effective social interaction in both professional and personal environments.

Social intelligence is fundamental to the ability to influence others, get work done, and succeed as a transformational leader and coach. It is essential to understanding:

  • Individual motivation
  • The way groups function
  • The blocks and limiting beliefs that inhibit effectiveness
  • How authentic personal power can manifest
  • The way people function in relation to authority

In this certificate program, you will learn to:

  • Inventory the many varieties of influence and personal power you employ.
  • Analyze self-imposed blocks that prevent you from realizing your full power.
  • Identify personal power styles.
  • Influence and motivate others through a variety of tools and methods.

You will receive an overview of developmental and existential philosophy to help you understand the power of orienting to principles in any situation, including the power of being your most authentic, truthful self.

You will also learn to identify and use purpose as a guiding and sorting tool in daily life. Purpose is an essential element of work that informs every aspect of coaching, leadership and vocational success. Through this certificate, you will identify an initial life purpose statement and discover ways in which having a clearer sense of mission brings deeper meaning and greater performance to all careers.

You’ll analyze your natural gifts and talents and explore how applying those gifts in the service of others can generate a lifelong sense of satisfaction and meaning.
