Interesting study supports that Emotionally Intelligent people make more money.

 

Awareness is the beginning to all change, and emotionally intelligent people not only strive for self mastery -- to understand, manage, and use their strengths...they are aware of how their actions impact people and situations.

 

What are your thoughts?  How can you tell when you a leader is emotionally intelligent?

 

---- If you have any questions around Emotional Intelligence or Leadership...I am on it!  My goal is to share thoughts, tools, and inspiration to help you leverage your strengths, and help your teams do the same!  I am grateful and fortunate to work with best in class global organizations and talented leaders, and I love to pass along lessons I gained from my experiences.

PS - Live on Purpose!

Lot of good advice on leading in the 21st century.... I especially like " be upfront about your leadership style" Many leaders say they are one thing and do another... if you like feedback can you take it as well as give it... If trust is big with you do you trust as well as expect others to trust you. Millennial appreciate openness....good read

The Definitive Case For Being A More Compassionate Boss

The Definitive Case For Being A More Compassionate Boss | Wise Leadership | Scoop.it
Here are some of the benefits of a compassionate workplace:

1. POSITIVE EMOTIONS BOOST PRODUCTIVITY


2. POSITIVE WORKPLACE INTERACTIONS IMPROVE EMPLOYEE HEALTH


3. POSITIVE SOCIAL INTERACTIONS AT WORK RESULT IN POSITIVE CUSTOMER SERVICE


4. A COMPASSIONATE WORK CULTURE FOSTERS GREATER LOYALTY


Seppala argues the creation of a compassionate work environment begins with leaders. When leaders act in a self-sacrificing, service-oriented way, she explains, employees are more likely to be helpful and friendly to each other; creating a chain reaction of kindness.

Kenneth Mikkelsen's curator insight, December 8, 2014 7:17 AM

The damaging consequence of a focus on traits is that it suggests we need to select the right people to run our lives, rather than consider what forms of hierarchy or non-hierarchy can elicit the best group behaviours to achieve desired goals.


Instead of a focus on heroes with great traits, to develop sustainability leadership we should enhance our understanding of how to develop leaderful groups, where senior role holders act as hosts not heroes, and enable leadership to emerge from within the group.


Miklos Szilagyi's curator insight, December 8, 2014 8:48 AM

Right... although to search for traits helping leaders being more apt to lead the more and more complexity remains always searching for traits determining the potentially useful leaders...

The 5 Psychological Traps We All Fall Into

The 5 Psychological Traps We All Fall Into | Wise Leadership | Scoop.it
There are many times when our social perception fails us. We have a tendency to take mental shortcuts, using what psychologists call “heuristics,” when trying to make sense of our social world. As a result, we are prone to make errors in our mental processing.
Here are some examples of common biases in social perception and how they lead us to misjudge people and events

 

The best way to prevent becoming a victim to these common biases in social perception is to be aware of them, and to stop and analyze situations before you act.

Shedding my natural advantages gave me an interesting career opportunity. After a 15-year career in investment banks, you learn a thing or two about determination, tenacity and endurance. True, the generous benefits help to cushion the associated sacrifices, but they can also shackle you to a purpose that might not be you at all. We’ve all heard plenty of stories about misaligned incentives in investment banks, but not what it means for the individuals.

Was there ever a time that was more uncertain than today? Are leaders prepared to manage change in ways that strengthen the teams around them?

Leadership is about taking the initiative to do the things others would rather avoid doing – and about allowing risk to be your best friend.

It is hard to wear so many hats simultaneously. The wise leader will develop them one at a time and add them to his or her toolbox.  In this way more will be accomplished in a shorter period of time than if we tried to do it all at the same time.  It is better to be excellent at several things acquired over time than to be mediocre at several things tried simultaneously...
