Enhancing your Emotional Intelligence (EQ) to Increase Your Success:Emotional Intelligence, or EQ, is one of the greatest assets leaders can cultivate to become more effective at problem solving, team building and resolving conflicts. EQ is having the ability to identify your emotions, determine their influence on you, express them appropriately and manage your behavior to achieve a positive outcome. Authentic leaders learn to manage their emotions and cultivate relationships with others to produce positive results.
Cultivating Courageous Conversations to Become Authentic Leaders:We all feel varying degrees of hesitancy to have courageous conversations at work, in the board room and even at home. We put these conversations off, hoping the problem will go away. Finding the courage to clearly and authentically communicate our needs with allies or adversaries is key to our performance. Learning to engage in courageous conversations makes us more authentic leaders and effective negotiators.
