64: Learn to Lead E is for Emotional Intelligence
Jul 31, 2015
Today we are going to cover the “E” in leadership. It stands for EQ, or Emotional Intelligence. It is also known by EI or EQ. I am going to use EQ.
I had one of my listeners recently say this to me about my podcast. “It’s not really just about leadership, it’s about being a healthy person.” I loved that feedback. Really that’s what emotional intelligence is all about, it’s about being a healthy person as a healthy leader. Thank you Jordan in Lyle, IL.
Emotional Intelligence counts for twice as much as IQ and technical skills combined. According to research, performance success is one-third IQ and two-thirds EQ.
