Session: Emotional Intelligence for Effective Leadership
Leaders set the tone of an organization. Organizations lacking in emotional intelligence (EQ), result in lower employee engagement and a higher turnover rate. Having only technical skills is not enough. If you can’t effectively communicate with your team or collaborate with others, your technical skills will get overlooked.
Emotional intelligence has proven to be a must-have skill. It is the ability to understand and manage your own emotions, as well as recognize and influence the emotions of those around you. People with high emotional intelligence are more likely to stay calm under pressure, transform conflict effectively, and respond to others with empathy.
An empathic leadership style can make everyone feel like a team, which leads to increased productivity, morale and team cohesiveness.
