Emotional Intelligence

Natural Born Leaders

Contrary to popular opinion – Knowledge is NOT power.  Your conduct and behaviour in everything you do is Power!

 

You must self-manage and optimise your personal strengths.  That is what will separate you from the crowd.

 

Businesses may think soft skills are unnecessary in a leader, but they’d be absolutely wrong.

 

In a HBR study, Daniel Goleman found that those who excelled in senior leadership roles, compared to those who were merely average, had close to a 90% difference in their emotional intelligence profiles.

 

Why is that?  Strong leaders have an ability to connect to their direct reports.  They have the empathy to see things from others’ shoes.  They don’t take things personally and can think clearly through what needs to get done.

 

EQ (also referred to as Emotional Intelligence) refers to a measurement of emotional intelligence. The good news is that unlike IQ, which tends to be constant, EQ can be intentionally raised.

 

Your level of EQ (or EI) impacts your job the more you work with people.  Studies have shown that EQ can have as much as 12x an impact on productivity for Doctors, Consultants, and Sales People.

Your level of EQ is measured by your understanding of five core areas.

  1. Self Awareness: (The ability to recognize and understand your moods, emotions, and drives, as well as their effect on others)
  2. Self Regulation:(The ability to control or redirect disruptive impulses and moods and the propensity to suspend judgement and think before acting)
  3. Motivation:(A passion to work for reasons that go beyond money or status and a propensity to pursue goals with energy and persistence)
  4. Empathy:(The ability to understand the emotional makeup of other people)
  5. Social Skills: (A proficiency in managing relationships and building networks)

 

Studies reveal that only 35% of people have naturally high levels of Emotional Intelligence.  Look around your company, it means that 65% of your staff are not working at their optimum level.

 

Businesses with employees with high emotional intelligence are happier, more productive and show results more than 10 fold of those companies who don’t.

Develop your Leaders

To increase the effectiveness of your Leader (or Potential Leader) add a Behavioural Profile to their EI training. It will:

  • Provide leaders with an understanding of how their leadership style impacts on their environment, team members and job performance
  • Understand the leadership styles of employees and identify potential leaders
  • Select focused competencies that identify specific leadership capabilities
  • Identify leaders with emotional challenges or working outside their comfort zone
  • Identify leaders who require support or require further training
  • Use updated behavioural reports to identify progress or the need for further development/training
