Emotional connection with the team. Advice to Leaders in Wartime
Emotional intelligence is one of the critical skills required of a modern manager. Therefore, this topic has been the focus of both theoreticians and practitioners in recent decades.
The event ended

However, in Ukraine, this problem has certain peculiarities. In the ninth year of the war, it can be confidently stated that the emotional landscape of society, in general, has changed significantly. This is also felt in individual groups and teams. A pronounced polarity characterizes the spectrum of emotional reactions of our colleagues: from feelings of grief, loss, fear, apathy, and burnout to patriotic elation, pride for the nation, and admiration for the courage of fellow citizens.


Undoubtedly, this directly affects professional behavior and work productivity. Therefore, controlling or at least feeling the team's moods is desirable. But is it possible in general, and if so, to what extent?

  • What is the responsibility of leaders and managers following these challenges?
  • Is it true that "regulation of emotions" is one of the managerial competencies?
  • Should the manager be a model of balance?
  • What should systemic organizational solutions be implemented to support teams, work towards victory, and beyond?
  • What to do when the sensitivity is on the limit?


We will discuss these and other issues related to the topic as part of a panel discussion among experts:

Oleksandr Zelenyuk — a graduate of EMBA-25, a professional certified ICF coach (PCC ICF), and a valid member of the International Coaching Federation (ICF) since 2019. President of ICF Ukraine (2021-2022).

Leonid Kolodyazhny — a graduate of EMBA-35, operations director of pharmaceutical company "Zdravo," cardiologist

Volodymyr Stanchyshyn — psychologist-psychotherapist, author of the books: "Walls in my head. Living with anxiety and depression", "It takes two for a relationship," "And the emotional swing of war."


It will be moderated by Olena Zhyltsova, head of Executive MBA and consultant in team management and organizational behavior.
