Patricia D. Sadar - Leadership Strength Coach's curator insight, January 17, 2014 2:17 PM

Thank you Roy for sharing this case study!!!

 

We are being judged by a whole different scorecard as leaders. 

 

As you have heard me say before:  Emotional Intelligence is not about being warm and fuzzy and nice all of the time...it is about being intelligent with one's emotions.  It involves being aware of who you are as a leader and understanding how you are hard-wired so that you can manage your responses, build relationships, and achieve greater individual and collaborative responses.

 

It has little to do with one's title or about being the boss -- it has everything to do about connecting, communicating, and influencing.  People follow you not because they have to; however, because they want to.

 

When leaders invest their time and energy on Emotional Intelligence they will see observable improvements on relationships, effectiveness, decision-making, and communication.

How Stress Is Making You Lose Your Mind

How Stress Is Making You Lose Your Mind | Motivational Leadership | Scoop.it

Stress is affecting your brain much more than you think. Sure, you've experienced the distraction, forgetfulness, negativity or anxiety that comes from stressful situations, but did you know it's also shrinking your brain? Hormones released in response to stress not only affect brain function, they also change the physical structure of your brain.

The stress hormone cortisol can kill, shrink, and stop the generation of new neurons in a portion of the brain called the hippocampus. The hippocampus is critical for learning, memory and emotional regulation, as well as shutting off the stress response after a stressful event is over: all much-needed processes in both our professional and personal lives.
