How to Deal With A Boss With Zero Emotional Intelligence

How to Deal With A Boss With Zero Emotional Intelligence | Manage your Manager | Scoop.it

You might already know that your emotional intelligence can influence your job success. But what about your callously oblivious boss or your ambiguously rigid colleagues?

 

Boosting your emotional intelligence might mean you are better at your job--but what can you do if your boss or colleagues don't exhibit anything close to emotional intelligence?

 

The good news is, the situations more hopeful than you think. The bad news is, you might have to have a difficult conversation. But don't worry, we've got you covered.

Ellen Naylor's curator insight, June 5, 11:02 AM

Good leaders are not only smart, but have high EQ. They think about others and let reporting people know how important they are. Their passion is infectious, and emotional connection makes the day. I wish we had more of that in corporations today, where most of the labor force is disengaged, and doesn't look forward to their work day.

Frank J. Papotto, Ph.D.'s curator insight, June 6, 11:25 AM

An interesting approach to identifying leader attributes.  To apply these findings, use the purposeful leadership approach that emphasizes the themes of broad alignment, robust engagement, sustainable adaptation and superb execution.  One can clearly see these themes reflected in the summaries of comments described. The common leadership and  management concepts seen here repeatedly emerge in other work: consideration of people, structuring of tasks, managing change, and  envisioning and inspiring a sense of purpose for example...

Lisa McCarthy's curator insight, June 6, 12:40 PM

Fascinating research.  Here are the main themes:

  • Leadership is about people.
  • Passion and purpose are infectious.
  • Top performers go deeper emotionally – not just caring, but personal caring.  Not just a good attitude, but giving the energy for people to smile.

When it comes to leading teams and organization’s in today’s fast-changing environment, it can be tempting to focus our attention on those employees who share our point of view; whose opinions and insights help to solidify and support our perspective of what’s important and what needs to be done. It’s also easy to try and limit what information we allow our employees to have access to as a way to exert control and authority over those we’re meant to serve.

 

And yet, if we are to truly tap into the great value of teams – of benefiting from the diversity of experiences, insights and outlooks – we need to demonstrate our commitment to ensuring that everyone in our team or organization has the opportunity to be heard; that we share what we know so that our employees will be willing to share their insights and experiences to help us better identify the challenges and opportunities we’ll face going forward.

La réponse d' Eléna Fourès , expert en leadership et multiculturalité, du cabinet Idem per Idem. elena.foures@idem-per-idem.com...

Les Anglo-Saxons parlent de « managing up », « manager son patron ». Tout l'art du « managing up » consiste à savoir se positionner à sa juste place (ni fayot ni en opposition). Le « managing up » est largement répandu, quoique - en dehors du monde anglo-saxon - il soit rarement officiellement reconnu, voire admis comme tel. Les relations patron(ne)-subordonné(e)s sont déterminées culturellement et varient fortement d'un pays à l'autre. En France, à l'inverse du monde anglo-saxon, on ne « challenge » pas autant son boss, voire pas du tout. ..

The Tension Connection - What’s A Tension Map?

The Tension Connection - What’s A Tension Map? | Manage your Manager | Scoop.it
After reading Steven’s Snyder’s new book, Leadership and the Art of Struggle, I wanted to know more about his theory of positive and destructive tension.  So we connected to talk about vision, experiences, maps and tension.

My key take away:  The right pressures in the right combinations create positive Flow.

Steven describes several sources of tension which he maps into quadrants.   We experience “tensions of tradition” when we work to challenge and disrupt our team’s patterns.   We may feel the “tensions of aspiration” when we have conflicting visions or goals for the future.  These can be good, or the source of deep struggle.

I asked Steve to share more… just how can those tight shoulders lead to “flow”?  What would I want my map to look like?

“Maps which show moderate to moderate-high levels of aspirational tension, lower levels of Tradition Tension and very low levels of Relationship or Identity Tension are which i would call “Flow”.    Tension maps which show low levels of all tensions are not producing enough tension to motivate high levels of achievement.

With respect to higher levels of tension.  This is a struggle.  There is not an “ideal” type of struggle.  everyone struggles differently.  The point is that the tension map can tell you what to do about it.”

Make Your Own Map

If you’re curious as to how this all works, you can get in on a free pilot of Steve’s online assessment, Adaptive Leader Profile.  You go online, answer some questions about yourself and your situation, and he will send you back a free map and interpretation.  The only caveat is that you need to wait until he get’s enough data to ensure validity (hey, it’s a pilot).

I took it, and am looking forward to the report.  Like you, I’ve got plenty of pressure worth mapping.

For great synopsis and overviews of Snyder’s book checkout these posts by Jon Mertz or Bill George.  Or download a free chapter.

ccording to recent research, 86 percent of employees believe that if they like their boss they are more productive. So forget about cracking the whip. Instead, build these seven habits into your leadership persona.


Sounds obvious, but simply taking a moment to greet your employees (by name!) and make small talk with them goes a long way to increasing your likeability as a boss. Be as approachable and accessible as possible. Take time to compliment employees and ask them how their day is going. Be patient; remember that it's important to set aside time for your people, no matter how busy you are. In fact, that busyness yours and theirs makes a friendly word even more important.
