Maximizing Leadership Impact
with Emotional Intelligence
To be a highly effective supervisor or office manager today, you must be a strategist, a coach, a mediator, a diplomat and a politician! The core competencies of emotional intelligence (EQ) are at the heart of successful leadership. Emotions impact your team’s decisions, behavior and performance. An effective leader must have strong interpersonal skills and impactful relationships if their organizations are also to be highly effective. A strong foundation of emotional intelligence helps leaders assess their own behavior and their workplace culture through an emotional intelligence lens and provides strategies to ensure that the emotional intelligence and well-being of employees and team members are suitably protected.
