Emotional Intelligence – The Power to Feel and Connect

Emotional Intelligence (EQ)

It is “a form of social intelligence that involves the ability to monitor one’s own and others’ feelings & emotions, to discriminate among them, and to use this information to guide one’s thinking and action.

Emotional Intelligence (EQ) may be one of the top three indicators/predictors of a leaders effectiveness, productivity and final career attainment. That might be a surprise to some but not to most. While Emotional Intelligence is nuanced, complex and advanced, it is still a skill that can be learned, trained, fine-tuned and executed. You probably didn’t hear much about the importance of cultivating EQ when you were in school or the first couple of jobs in your career. Because these skills are perceived as too soft, creative or advanced their criticality to new leadership is often missed. Unfortunately that is missed opportunity for young leaders to integrate the power of emotional understanding into their early leadership toolbox to accelerate the growth and development of their career. Your emotional intelligence inspires growth and deeper understanding of both the world and people around you.

Emotional Intelligence(EQ) is a critical part of the Great Leadership equation.

Great Leadership = (IQ * EQ * CQ)

Without EQ it is not possible to be achieve great leadership. EQ is the critical glue that binds together our Intelligence and our Curiosity.
