Emotional Intelligence development can make a huge difference to your leaders, your teams and your people.
Emotional Intelligence isn’t a luxury you can dispense with in tough times. Its a basic tool that, deployed with finesse, is key to professional success. – Harvard Business Review
It’s not the smartest people that are the most successful or the most fulfilled in life. You probably know people who are academically brilliant and yet are socially inept and unsuccessful at work or in their personal relationships. Intellectual intelligence (IQ) isn’t enough on its own to be successful in life. Yes, your IQ can help you get into college, or get on the career ladder but it’s your EQ that will help you manage the stress and emotions that result from pressure and increasing rates of change. Emotional Intelligence development can help you with this.
EQ has a far higher impact on success, however you define it, than IQ.
Benefits of Emotional Intelligence Development:
When you’re running about your day with a mile long “to do” list, it’s unlikely you have the extra time to figure out how everyone is feeling about everything. To you – you’re building a company, developing a product, raising money, trying to find resources and so on. You don’t have the time to focus on the emotional state of being of everyone around you. This is where we make mistakes that stunt the progress of our business.
Emotional Intelligence measured as your EQ can be just as valuable as IQ in the workplace. It is time we put empathy, encouragement, insight and self-awareness higher up the agenda.
A good leader should be empathetic and try to understand how others feel.
Softer skills can be dismissed as being irrelevant at work and historically it used to be considered unprofessional to show an emotional side in business. But times have changed and the importance of so-called emotional intelligence, or EQ, is now being recognised as an important leadership skill, helping govern behaviour and influencing our relationships with others, as well as our own performance and results.
