Many leaders and chief executives are often frustrated by how their personal effectiveness is perceived by their teams. This frustration is amplified by not knowing how to take this hurdle.
Do you wish to know THE scientifically proven predictor of outstanding leadership?
Recently, I worked with a chief executive who had poor interpersonal relationships with his direct reports. He relied solely on intellectual knowledge and ignored all other resources available to him.
Above all, he was unable to see himself objectively. He was unable to observe both his own emotions and those of others.
What he urgently needed was to use his Cognitive Intelligence together with Emotional Intelligence. The combination of these two modes of understanding leads to outstanding leadership.
Why was this exposure to Emotional Intelligence necessary for this person?
