What is Emotional Intelligence?


Emotional intelligence is not about being nice all the time.
It is about being honest.
Emotional intelligence is not about being touchy-feely.
It is about being aware of your feelings, and those of
others.
Emotional intelligence is not about being emotional.
It is about being smart with your emotions.

Emotional intelligence will be an


important key to leadership in
the future.

Fundamental Questions
1.

What emotional resources do


leaders need to thrive amidst
chaos and turbulent change?

2. How do leaders create an


emotional organizational climate
that fosters creative
innovations, change,
performance, or lasting
relationships?

Todays business/public
environments and people
issues are far too complex to
return to a top-down, power
based style leadership.

But we still tend to use


the old language to
describe leadership:

bold,

brave

tough

a strong sense of purpose and resolve.

These Attributes Do Not


Fit Today's Needs
Todays workforce does not accept the
autocratic style often adopted by
leaders following historical models of
leadership.
Leadership has had to evolve to match
a growing sense of democracy and
independence in the workforce
Employees now have far more options
and choices than the foot soldiers of
yesterday
