Inspiring Leadership - A conversation with John Caparella

From Chuck Wolfe | Part of the The Emotion Roadmap: Take the Wheel & Control How You Feel series | 56:41

I interviewed John Caparella, President of the award winning Venetian and Palazzo Resorts and the Sands Expo and Convention center in Las Vegas. John is also an award winner, and one of the most respected and experienced executives in the hotel industry. He is also a friend and one of the best leaders I have ever worked with. John is an emotionally intelligent, inspiring leader.


In my management consulting practice I have found organizations often have similar challenges, such as changing a culture, engaging employees, managing talent, developing new leaders, creating new growth, and managing expenses, while at the same time exceeding customer expectations. 

I prepared a series of questions that address these types of challenges and shared them with John Caparella. His experience, knowledge and intuition have led people to view him as a very practical, emotionally intelligent leader.
 I am sure you will find John's answers to be brilliant and engaging, and the information discussed very meaningful and valuable.

Learn how Horses are Helping People Grow as Leaders

From Chuck Wolfe | Part of the The Emotion Roadmap: Take the Wheel & Control How You Feel series | 54:54

Real "Horse Power" is being used to help people develop social and emotional intelligence which leads to improved leadership. Linda Kohanov and Lissa Pohl are two expert leaders in the field. Linda is known for her understanding of use of the wisdom of horses on her ranch, in her workshops and in her writing. Her latest book is one of the best I have seen for practical strategies to improve leadership and emotional intelligence. Lissa Pohl is a member of the University of Kentucky's Center for Leadership Development where she just helped lead a pilot study where she and her team used horses for guided leadership education to develop emotional intelligence in expert nurses. The very positive results of a "one" day workshop were still in evidence six months after the session ended!

Chuck_and_daphne_small If you love horses and are intrigued by the idea of using horses to develop relationship skills, to increase social and emotional intelligence and to develop leadership skills, you will want to listen. As an expert in emotional intelligence and a proud owner of a beautiful Appaloosa that I love riding bareback, this 50+ minute interview was fun and very informative. If you know someone that loves horses please let them know about this interview.

Emotional Intelligence and Leadership: The Pioneering Psychologists

From Chuck Wolfe | Part of the The Emotion Roadmap: Take the Wheel & Control How You Feel series | 54:01

Ever wonder why some leaders appear unwilling to pay attention to others' feelings? Ever wonder why a particular person really upsets you and you can't seem to control how you feel when you are around them? Listen to this interview to find out how to influence others and how to manage your own emotions more effectively.

Logo_for_web_small Peter Salovey, Provost at Yale University and Jack Mayer, Psychologist at University of New Hampshire were the first to research and write about a new intelligence they called "emotional intelligence". Dan Goleman published a best seller called Emotional Intelligence in 1995. Since that time many programs and models of emotional intelligence have emerged. David Caruso, a psychologist, consultant, and research affiliate at Yale, joined with Peter and Jack to create the Mayer Salovey Caruso Emotional Intelligence Test (MSCEIT) which is an ability based model of emotional intelligence. Chuck Wolfe joined with Peter, Jack, and David to publish an earlier version of the MSCEIT, and to help find ways to make the knowledge of emotional science highly useful to people in the workplace, and in life in general. The Emotion Roadmap was a key outcome of the work we all did together.  In this interview you will hear: why this truly is a new intelligence; how emotional abilities are measured; why the differences in our individual abilities matter; and how to improve your emotional abilities. Can you imagine having more control over how you feel and how others are feeling? How about learning how to lead and becoming an inspirational leader? While this interview will not solve all your emotional challenges, it will provide you with tools, and insights, to help you plan emotionally for better outcomes!
