Leadership from the field 

 EQ & You!   

 

In order to achieve higher levels of productivity, performance and leadership, a person must develop high levels of emotional intelligence.

 

Self-Awareness

If we are not aware of our emotions and how they impact others, the other emotional intelligence skills become more difficult to demonstrate. If we are unaware of our emotions, it's virtually impossible to regulate them.

Being Self-aware is the first step towards Self-regulation.

 

Self-Regulation

Once we are aware of our emotions, then we can begin to regulate them. If we fail to regulate our emotions, it becomes difficult to stay focused and on task. Self-regulation also comes into play when changes occur in our personal and professional lives. If we allow our emotions to run amok, we become demotivated.

Self-regulating leads to improved Motivation.

 

Motivation

Staying motivated despite your emotional temperature relies heavily on being self-aware and regulating your emotions. Part of emotional intelligence is channeling both positive and negative emotions into focused and productive energy.

Motivation is essential for Empathy.

 

Empathy

It is important to understand and consider the feelings of others when trying to make a good decision. While others' feelings are not the only deciding factor in a decision, they are important and should be considered. Furthermore, those that lack Empathy may have difficulty with Social Skills.

 

Social Skills

The ability to effectively manage relationships is the amalgam of all the other emotional intelligence skills. If you effectively self-manage and are empathetic towards others, good social skills follow suit. Social skills are more than friendliness. Those that demonstrate superior social skills are persuasive, easily build rapport, and are

adept at building strategic alliances.

What I Am Reading 

Geeks, Geezers, and Googlization: How to Manage the Unprecedented Convergence of the Wired, the Tired, and Technology in the Workplace. by IRA S Wolf  

 

The workplace has become a potential battlefield between four generations struggling to exert their influence and hold on to their world views and attitudes. At its center are the deep-rooted beliefs and attitudes held by each generation toward work, life, and communication. These differences in perspective and opinion are not new. What is new this time around is that the orderly progression of a new young generation replacing retiring workers has been disrupted by people working well into traditional retirement years. Many Baby Boomers and Veterans continue to work by choice. Others work because they need the money as retirement and recession collide. And many retired workers are returning to the workforce to supplement depleted retirement funds or to escape boredom. The result is that we currently have four generations working side by side for the first time in history. Read more
