Is like day-to-day
My brand of leadership development engages the participant’s
is emotional intelligence?
Daniel Goleman, among others, has
researched and written extensively about emotional intelligence.
What is clear from the work that has been done is that leaders with
strong emotional intelligence are far more effective than their
peers who lack this strength. In Leadership that Gets
Results Goleman states, “Emotional intelligence is the ability
to manage ourselves and our relationship effectively. It consists of
four fundamental capabilities including self-awareness,
self-management, social awareness and social skill. Each capability
in turn is composed of its own set of competencies.”
BcBer explored the relationship between leadership and emotional
intelligence, organizational climate and performance. Goleman notes
two key results: Leaders with the best financial results do not rely
solely on one leadership style but use several styles in a given
week, depending on the situation. Not all leadership styles have a
positive impact on organizational climate and financial performance.
Increasing the emotional intelligence of leaders, and their ability
to adopt a situation-appropriate leadership style improves climate
and improves corporate performance.
