Leading with Emotional Intelligence

“IQ gets you hired. EQ gets you promoted.”
- Daniel Goleman

The Business Case

Social and Emotional Intelligence is a form of intelligence that drives our success in work and in life and in our relationships. Studies show that Social and Emotional Intelligence is scientifically proven to:

  • Boost sales (American Express, L'Oreal)
  • Increase profits ( McDonnell Douglas)
  • Reduce turnover (U.S. Air Force, Symantec)

Without emotional intelligence, a leader can have outstanding technical training, a highly analytical mind, a long-term vision, yet still not make an effective leader of people. Research shows leaders high in emotional intelligence outperform their targets by 20%. Ninety per cent of a leader’s results come from their emotional intelligence.

The good news? While IQ remains fixed from birth, Social and Emotional Intelligence can be learned and strengthened.

The Payoff

Leading with Emotional Intelligence will provide leaders with a Social and Emotional Intelligence Profile (SEIP), the most comprehensive social and emotional intelligence assessment instrument on the market today, measuring 26 distinct social and emotional intelligence competencies.

Leaders can instantly see their strengths and potential vulnerabilities when it comes to social and emotional intelligence. The SEIP is also available in a 360 version in which a leader's manager, peers and direct reports can provide anonymous, confidential feedback to the leader in order to help them become more aware of how they are perceived by others and their impact on others.

Our Approach

We offer a one day workshop that introduces Social and Emotional Intelligence, reviews the 26 competencies, provides an overview of the SEI Profile 360 assessment, what it measures and what it means, before sharing individual SEI profiles with leaders.

We can provide optional coaching for leaders to help them understand their assessment results and support them as they begin to create their individual development plans.

Who Will Benefit

Leaders who want to strengthen their emotional intelligence that will help them manage their teams and other stakeholders in a manner that brings out the best in others.
