There are countless components of emotional intelligence, but our emotional intelligence speakers will help tailor the necessary advice, skills, and guides for your organization. Overall, our keynote speakers agree that there are five aspects of emotional intelligent leadership that are essential to any organization: empathy, self-awareness, self-regulation, motivation, and acquiring new social skills.
First, when speaking of emotional intelligence, empathy lies at the core. As a leader in any organization, it is essential to understand the behaviour and mannerisms of other people: why they do the things they do and what motives lie behind their actions, never reaching any rushed conclusions.
Self-awareness and self-regulation are another two core aspects of good leadership. As a person in any position of power, reflecting on own behaviour is key. Studies show that leaders who reflect on their own skills have fewer outbursts and maintain a cool head more often amidst stressed situations.
Another key term in emotionally intelligent leadership is motivation. In big organizations, terms like ‘crunch time’ (working overtime up to an important deadline) have become mainstream, encouraging leaders to use immense pressure as motivation. But studies have shown that too much pressure is not healthy for a workplace in the long-term, and it is therefore essential for leaders to learn how to motivate their teams in positive and motivational ways.
Finally, having good social skills is something that is often discussed in emotional intelligence, but these skills are not predetermined. Both introverted and extroverted people can have excellent social skills, as it is an acquired skill. We can therefore all learn to be emotional intelligent people, leaders, and colleagues, all we need is the right framework and guideline to take us there.
Our emotional intelligence speakers will share with your audience their valuable knowledge and best advice on how to create the right framework for your organization.
