'If your emotional abilities aren't in hand, if you don't have self-awareness, if you are not able to manage your distressing emotions, if you can't have empathy and have effective relationships, then no matter how smart you are, you are not going to get very far.'
– DANIEL GOLEMAN, EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE
We shape emotionally intelligent leaders with superior self-awareness. Leaders who are specialists at meaningful conversations; speaking from the heart and listening without being defensive. Emotionally intelligent leaders who stay calm under pressure and rarely overreact. These leaders are known to be outstanding communicators, gifted at adapting how they engage to better connect with their audience.
Emotional intelligence (EQ) is a critical factor in shaping future-ready leaders, as many experts believe it to be a stronger predictor of success, quality of relationships and overall happiness than IQ. In fact, EQ accounts for nearly 90 percent of what moves people up the career ladder when IQ and technical skills are roughly similar (“What Makes a Leader", Harvard Business Review, January 2004).
The Future Leader works closely with leaders and teams to build their EQ.
