Leading as a Highly Sensitive Person

Highly sensitive people (HSPs) have unique neural wiring that enable them to process the world around them more deeply. Studies have shown that HSPs have more active brain areas related to attention, action planning, decision-making, and empathy—qualities that make great leaders. But high sensitivity can pose challenges to leading effectively, such as coping with stress, managing emotions, setting boundaries, and more. In this course, executive coach Melody Wilding shares tools and strategies that highly sensitive leaders can utilize to perform at their best, and offers the latest research and case studies to teach you how to use sensitivity as an asset to impact teams and organizations. Plus, learn how to identify and evaluate how high sensitivity impacts leadership behaviors, techniques to manage the challenges of sensitivity related to personal performance and team management, and how to amplify high sensitivity strengths to boost leadership impact and influence.
