Emotional Intelligence (EI) has been proven over multiple decades to be the distinguishing factor of great leaders. EI can be defined as a set of emotional and social skills that influence how we perceive and express ourselves, build relationships, cope with challenges, make decisions and manage stress. All of these aspects are critical components of effective leadership. As opposed to IQ, EI can be developed and improved with training and coaching. The business case for investing in your leadership team’s emotional intelligence is clear.
