Five Simple Tips For Building A More Emotionally Intelligent Team

Five Simple Tips For Building A More Emotionally Intelligent Team | :: The 4th Era :: | Scoop.it

Getting smart people into your company is hard enough. Turning them all into great collaborators and risk-takers is even harder. Even on the most high-performing teams, coworkers don’t just openly share feedback and challenge each others’ ideas all on their own–managers need to create a culture that encourages this. And that usually requires building your team’s collective emotional intelligence. Here are a few straightforward (and entirely low-tech ways) to get started.

Sketch Note: How to Influence Without Authority | Leadership | EQ | :: The 4th Era :: | Scoop.it

My work in corporate quality functions in the past involved influencing cross-functional teams (as an internal consultant) on processes and methods when I had no direct reporting relationships with them. I knew that only technical expertise was not enough and I wished I had some guidance on how to.

Valuable tips for all business relationships!!


Emeric Nectoux's curator insight, April 24, 2016 3:50 AM

In her post: “How to Influence Without Authority”, Jesse Lyn Stoner offers useful guidance on the what she calls as “8 Portals of Influence”. Whether you lead backed by a formal authority or you lead without a title, these ideas should help you build influence.

 

    1. Character – Your own character is your greatest source of influence.
    2. Expertise – Do you have content knowledge and experience? Are you a thought leader?
    3. Information – Do you have access to valuable information?
    4. Connectedness – Do you form close relationships with people? Do they enjoy working with you? 
    5. Social intelligence – Do you offer insight into interpersonal issues that interfere with work and help facilitate resolution of issues? P
    6. Network – Do you put the right people in touch with each other? 
    7. Collaboration – Do you seek win-win solutions, unify coalitions and build community? 
    8. Funding – Do you have access to financial support?

3 Things Leaders With Impressive Communication Skills Always Do

3 Things Leaders With Impressive Communication Skills Always Do | :: The 4th Era :: | Scoop.it

Communication is an essential life skill for anyone and everyone. It's one of the earliest survival skills we learn as growing children. (How else would we have asked our parents for another cookie?) As we grow and become fully functioning human beings, communication only increases in complexity and importance--especially when you're leading a company.

 

No matter what industry you're in or what size company you're leading, you're working constantly with different kinds of people. You've got internal team members and employees, clients, prospective clients, recruits, and other industry professionals, each with their own personalities and communication styles.

 

You even communicate in a lot of different ways: during meetings; via email, phone calls, and group messaging; through thought leadership content published online and on social media; and at industry events.

To Be An Effective Leader Keep A Leadership Journal

To Be An Effective Leader Keep A Leadership Journal | :: The 4th Era :: | Scoop.it

Teddy Roosevelt did it. Harry Truman did it. Want to be an outstanding leader? Keep a leadership journal. As part of my executive coaching work, one of the most effective tools I recommend that powers up the coaching process is a leadership journal.  The exercise of leadership is not unlike a sport you play. When you review your actions in the field you learn what worked, what didn’t, and adjust along the way. Leadership guru Peter Drucker said: “ Follow effective action with quiet reflection. From the quiet reflection will come even more effective action. ”

I think this is an underused tool in many professions. Moreover, we do not journal about what we experience and how we feel about those experiences. We want to shape the world without reshaping ourselves.

Because teachers can lead in a variety of ways, many teachers can serve as leaders among their peers.

So what are some of the leadership options available to teachers? The following 10 roles are a sampling of the many ways teachers can contribute to their schools' success.
