Leadership

Emotional intelligence is the single biggest predictor of success in the workplace, and the strongest driver of leadership and personal success. Strong emotional intelligence allows you to recognize your attitude (self-awareness), understand its impact on others (social awareness), change it (self-management), and choose to behave in a way that lifts the mood of others (relationship management).

When we look at extraordinary leaders who inspire and make a difference, they connect with people at a personal and emotional level. They’re successful at optimizing their interpersonal skills. What differentiates these leaders is not their IQ but their EQ – their emotional intelligence.

Does any of this sound familiar?

Do you struggle to achieve the success you deserve?

Do you believe if you want something done right, you have to do it yourself?

Do you wrestle with self-doubt and feelings of inadequacy?

Does any kind of feedback tend to make you upset or angry?

Do you struggle to get your message across to your team?

Do you have a hard time keeping your cool in the middle of a conflict?

Do you have a hard time understanding other people’s emotions, needs, or concerns?

Have you ever walked away from a meeting or conversation to later find out that the true meaning of what was communicated was not at all what you took away from it? 

Are you consistently facing the same challenges over and over again?

If any of the above sound familiar, you are most likely an individual with high IQ, who possesses technical knowledge and competence. Though your skills secured your current position, if you aspire to advance in your career, there’s an emotional element you need to master.

Emotions are one of the most powerful, underlying forces within us. Every step we take in life, every move that we make is dictated or ruled at some point by our emotions.

Research conducted by Harvard University, the Carnegie Foundation, and the Stanford Research Institute has shown that on average, 85% of job success is based on an individual’s people skills, with only 15% attributed to technical skills and knowledge.
