Leading with Emotional Intelligence

EI is the ability to recognize, understand, and manage your emotions and to effectively adapt your behaviors to create positive and constructive relationships with others. Emotional intelligence is an important characteristic for anyone at any level of an organization, but it is even more critical at the leadership level. Leaders with high EI have solid self-awareness about the link between their behaviors and how it makes others feel and perform. A leader’s emotional intelligence can have far-reaching influence over their relationships, how they manage their teams, and the results produced in the workplace. Emotionally intelligent leaders lead by example and are more effective problem-solvers. They communicate more effectively, make better decisions, create better relationships with their team members, and achieve career and personal goals in a shorter amount of time while better engaging and motivating those around them.
