Emotional Intelligence is Crucial for Leaders
Emotional Intelligence (EQ) is integral for leaders, now more than ever. Leaders with high emotional intelligence experience:
Higher personal performance
15% to 29% higher revenues in their teams or divisions
Four times better employee retention
More constructive conflict resolution
Higher levels of trust with their employees
Higher employee motivation
Better team cohesion and effectiveness
What is EQ?
According to the EQ-i 2.0 ® Technical Manual, 2011, EQ is a set of emotional and social skills that influence the way we:
Perceive and express ourselves
Develop and maintain social relationships
Cope with challenges
Use emotional information in an effective and meaningful way
How can you increase EQ?
Unlike IQ, you can strengthen your EQ.
Practice self-awareness and mindfulness
Be aware of how emotion hinders your decision-making (e.g., procrastinator, worrier, avoider…)
Choose to focus on your strengths
Allow yourself to be open and vulnerable
Work with a coach
