Why Emotional Intelligence (EI) skills are beneficial

  • Develops the ability to build connection in differences by transforming difficult emotions and criticism into shared understanding.
  • Focuses attention on what matters most, using efficient and effective language skills that lead to strong solutions.
  • Strengthens your ability to inspire compassion, cooperation and trust from others by reframing challenging communication with proven approaches that lead to peaceful resolution of conflict with integrity and connection.

EI as a Leadership Skill

The most capable leaders use EI to more adeptly handle diversity, while attending to issues of expanded markets, and human resources in collaborative ways. Since creating a team of emotionally intelligent members is essentially the same as in developing an individual, the EI Leader knows that the more these skills and competencies are developed within a collaborative team, the more effective the group can become.

EI Leaders and individuals recognize the importance of creating a collaborative environment regulated with trust and equality, and are careful to manage their emotions and resultant behavior accordingly. With support, team members quickly adopt the optimism, enthusiasm, and inspiration of EI Leaders and individuals who demonstrate a genuine interest in the shared success of the team.

Key EI Skills are the basis of Effective Collaboration

  • Empathetic Communication – open and efficient information exchange.
  • Understanding of shared and individual goals.
  • Mutual Support and a willingness to help each other succeed.
  • Aligned Efforts – alignment of contributions with expectations, and priorities.

EI maximizes one’s leadership effectiveness by strengthening the ability to influence and move people to perform to the best of their ability. For individuals, team and the organization, EI competency is key for those who want to experience the greatest effectiveness, connection and meaning in their work.
