Emotional Intelligence Training for Leaders

Emotional Intelligence and Leadership Can Make or Break Employee Engagement and Productivity

Emotionally intelligent leadership brings out the best in people.

Whether we’re at home or at work, our emotions are woven into our every interaction. They influence how we react to challenges and opportunities. They determine whether or not we collaborate to resolve conflict. They prompt our willingness to forgive ourselves and others.

And as we move through our days, our emotions play a role in the amount of effort we demonstrate, our psychological health, and our moods.

Emotional intelligence is defined as our capacity to be aware of, to control, and to express these emotions. The ability to connect emotionally with employees is essential for leadership effectiveness. In part, that’s because the way a leader makes people feel can impact engagement, as well as productivity.

Individuals at every level in an organization benefit from emotionally intelligent leadership, as it yields greater employee commitment and engagement, productivity, and profitability.

Our research has found that managers who show more empathy toward their direct reports are viewed as better performers in their jobs by their bosses and their teams. But when leaders lack critical people skills, employees experience more daily stress, dissatisfaction, and disengagement — and productivity plummets.

Our evidence-based development solutions, including emotional intelligence training for leaders, help to foster greater self-awareness, empathy, and active listening skills, while also helping to build cultures of greater psychological safety and inclusion.
