Research has shown that people join organizations, but leave bosses. Studies further confirm that Emotional Intelligence (EI) is twice as important as IQ and technical skills for jobs at all levels. People who have high levels of EI earn an average of $29,000 more per year and it is THE key differentiator for what separates average leaders from superstars.
What is emotional intelligence, and why does it matter?
Emotional Intelligence is the ability to be aware of our own emotions and emotions of others, in the moment, and to use that information to manage ourselves and our relationships with others. Emotionally Intelligent leaders build trust, increase employee engagement and retention, and inspire high levels of performance directly impacting the bottom line.
Training in Emotional Intelligence is not about learning to be nice-it’s about learning to become an effective and influential leader! Using the (SEIP)® assessment, leaders will learn how they score in 26 distinct EI competencies, learning to better leverage their strengths and learn new behaviors in areas of needed development. Often leaders learn that the technical skills that got them to the top, do not sustain them in leading others. Emotional Intelligence training provides the necessary tools in making the vital shift from individual success to leading teams successfully. Every leader and organization desires engaged employees who will go the extra mile to advance the mission of the organization.
