EQ and Leadership

2019-09-02T09:01:41+02:00August 16th, 2019|

Fundamentally, the purpose of leadership is to help the team succeed. All of us need to get along, and we also need to get ahead. The team can only grow stronger and achieve its objectives when both motives are managed and balanced. Although analytical intelligence is important in life, emotional intelligence (EQ) is key to relating well to others and achieving your goals.

It also means that you value others, listen to their wants and needs, and are able to empathize or identify with them on different levels. Reversely, if you don’t care about EQ, your career may be prone to derailment.
