Emotional Intelligence for Business Professionals & Leaders

Two of the very early articles we had published on Whirling Chief in 2016 were around what majority of us calls ‘King Managers’ because these managers believe (and therefore behave in a way) they have the ultimate solution.

King Managers: Skills you should learn before losing time!

King Managers, continued…

By writing about these topics, we try to bring humility and humor into very real human scenarios, which make or break up our days at the workplace, every day.

It is really a shame that despite a ton of research and best-selling books on the topic of leadership, many people managers continue to downplay the importance of emotional intelligence (EI). In fact, we continue to hear it being referred to as a “touchy-feely” soft skill.

Thank goodness, by the virtue of industrial and organizational psychology and neuroscience researches being published in the last few years, we are finally able to pinpoint to the hard, physical facts that demonstrate higher emotional intelligence is a stronger predictor of success for those in people management roles.

An understanding of what exactly constitutes emotional intelligence is not only important because the capacity is so central to being true to self, but it also bolsters the hard skills, like analytical thinking, operations management, etc., helping us think more creatively about how best to leverage our technical know-how.

If you are a people manager, please, please, take a little time to invest in yourself. To gain self-awareness, self-regulation, try to understand your intrinsic motivations, grow empathy and other skills.

For those in Zurich area, enhanced by research findings from Daniel Goleman, Brene Brown and Susan David, my dear colleague, Vendula Pavlikova and I are offering an Emotional Intelligence for Business Professionals & Leaders workshop.

We have a few slots remaining, so, please consider joining us!
