Those that have worked with me in the past, especially 10 plus years ago probably remember instances where something in a meeting triggered an impulse. The result was me saying or doing something that, although funny, was emotionally unintelligent and caused unintentional damage. One that I recall and still cringe is during one of our standard managers' meetings, we were asked to bring our senior yearbook photos. The projector cast images of our younger selves, clad in iconic '80s styles. One particular image triggered an impulse in me, leading me to quip, "Looks like she spent time under the bleachers." The mood shifted instantaneously.
From IQ to EQ: The Silent Shift Transforming Leadership Success
If you answer yes to any of these questions, the following article on Emotional Intelligence is for you.
Traditionally, leadership has been perceived as the domain of the intellectually gifted. The individual who can strategize with unparalleled acumen is often presumed to be the most intelligent person in the room and, therefore, the most qualified to lead.
However, this understanding of intelligence and leadership has evolved significantly in recent years, particularly in the context of the modern workplace. A growing body of empirical research now suggests that emotional quotient (EQ) – the ability to comprehend, manage, and effectively leverage emotional dynamics in oneself and others – is equally, if not more, important than traditional intelligence quotient (IQ) measures.
