Emotional Intelligence (EQ) is a crucial skill for both leaders and employees to have. EQ begins with self and social awareness and is defined as the ability to recognize emotions (and their impact) in both yourself and others. You don’t have control over what emotions you feel, but you can control your thoughts and how you react to those emotions. The big question is, how effective are you as a leader at managing and navigating your emotions?
In Steve Gutzler’s recent article, Do You Lead Others With Emotional Intelligence?, he provides a short checklist of traits emotionally intelligent leaders demonstrate. His challenge to you is to take this checklist and begin focusing on one are where you can improve. Steve reminds us, “You must lead with vision, clarity, strategy, team-building, and emotional intelligence.”
Steve’s program, Emotional Intelligence for Extraordinary Leadership teaches audiences that in order to lead with impact, one has to fully engage the minds, emotions, and spirit of those they lead. Empower your team to feel emotionally connected with their own purpose and to one another by bringing Steve to your upcoming meeting or event. For booking information, please contact Michelle Joyce.
