Emotional Intelligence and Workplace Productivity: The Hidden Link
Thursday, August 2, 2018 - 08:35
Part of what makes a business leader successful is being able to figure out how to run a company better and, crucially, more productively. Often this involves identifying and eliminating inefficiencies and duplicated resources, as well as making sure the best possible team has been assembled with the right qualifications. But the irony is that, in doing this, we often neglect to try to improve one of our most valuable qualities, that of leadership and the ability to inspire and to motivate.
What makes one person stand out in such a way that others are moved by them? What defines such a leader? What sort of leader sustains others on a daily basis? At the core of the most powerful leaders is presence, or that indefinable yet palpable feeling that others experience around them. It is their interesting difference, the angularity of their approach, a continually positive and constructive sense of the world, or just a totally different slant they put on situations. However you describe it, leaders have it. You know when they walk in the room. When they talk, people listen.
Every successful manager knows the modern company must change with the times, adapting to new technologies and strategies in order to remain successful. Boards, committees, or departments can construct detailed plans on how a company will transform to meet these evolving challenges. Money will be spent, man hours will pile up, and countless emails will be written. Great ideas may start from just a few people, but unless your employees are engaged in helping those changes take place, implementing them can be an exhaustive process that may never provide the desired results.

Emotional Intelligence: How to Develop These 3 Key Skills
Monday, May 7, 2018 - 09:50
Every professional who wishes to scale the corporate ladder to the highest rung needs to have the ability of understanding, managing and expressing his or her emotions, as well as the emotions of others. You have probably come across people who are good listeners and always seem to have the right words, and they know how to express those words in a way that is not offensive. That is a foundation of emotional intelligence (EI).
At least as early as the 1990s, leaders of organizations were being analyzed for strengths and weaknesses not through the traditional lens of profit and loss but with new tools of psychology, including an appreciation for emotional intelligence, a systematic review of “soft skills,” and insights into their awareness of multiple intelligences. This leadership team assessment has grown and developed over the decades to produce ever-more reliable results. Assessments can now be validated to increase reliability and validity, and outcomes can be better predicted.
