Supervisors' Learning Forum: Strengthening Leadership through Emotional and Social Intelligence

Emotional and social intelligence is the capacity for recognizing our own feelings and those of others, for motivating ourselves, and for managing emotions effectively in ourselves and in others. Supervisors with high emotional and social intelligence are typically the top performers in their institutions and create high performing work climates for their teams.

During this session, supervisors will explore the connection between emotional and social intelligence, job performance, and leadership effectiveness. Through exploring these connections, supervisors will have an opportunity to identify developmental pathways to further enhance leadership effectiveness.

Our speaker will be Jonathan Hulbert, who currently serves as the Director of Leadership and Organizational Development at SUNY Buffalo State College. Prior to working at Buffalo State College, he served as the Dean of Student Success at Tiffin University.  Mr. Hulbert served as a student engagement, retention, and student affairs assessment consultant for 50 west coast colleges and universities when employed at Campus Labs. Mr. Hulbert continues to actively contribute to higher education professional development, currently serving as the President of the Hilbert College Alumni Board and facilitating leadership workshops at conferences and local colleges and universities. Mr. Hulbert received an Ed.M. degree in higher education administration from the University at Buffalo and a B.A. degree in psychology with a minor in leadership studies from Hilbert College.
