Research shows that Emotional Intelligence is what separates successful workplace leaders from the less successful (Hay/McBer Research and Innovation Group 1997). The IECL's Emotional Intelligence Training helps leaders to identify what Emotional Intelligence looks like in the workplace and how they can develop it within themselves.
Emotional Intelligence (EQ) is the capacity to recognise an emotional state - your own and that of others - and incorporate that into relationships, both personal and workplace. It heightens the ability to make choices about responding to others and taking appropriate action.
In the workplace, Emotional Intelligence forms the basis of high-performing relationships and enables leaders to reach their full potential.
Emotional Intelligence (EQ) is the single greatest contributor to personal excellence and leadership. Emotional Intelligence is twice as important as intellect and expertise in terms of performance. In leadership positions, EQ is more than fives times as important. How does emotional intelligence impact performance and business results?
Daniel Goleman studied core competencies at 500 organisations and found that up to 85% of leadership success is attributable to Emotional Intelligence.
In a study of 4000 leaders and their direct reports, the style of leadership is the biggest driver of climate - impacting 70%. Organisational climate affects 20-30% of business results.
Research shows the critical factor for sustained achievement is not only a function of ability or talent but 80% of achievement is dependent on Emotional Intelligence.
In a consulting firm, people who scored high on EQ competencies delivered 139% more than others.
The more a leader demonstrates emotionally intelligent workplace behaviour to their staff, the more their staff will perform above and beyond what is expected of them.
