There are those who encourage co-workers to express their ideas and opinions ... and those who stifle creativity. There are those who foster a spirit of teamwork and look for inventive means of motivating co-workers ... and those who fail to "connect." There are those who express themselves clearly and effectively - with an undeniable presence that demands attention - and those who shrink away from the spotlight.
Understanding poor leadership and how to avoid it relates directly to emotional intelligence. Current research indicates that 90 percent of leadership success is due to skills related to emotional intelligence. These "soft" interpersonal skills do not replace technical skills; they complement them. As people progress in leadership responsibility, these skills become increasingly important.
