EQ, Not IQ
“According to the World Economic Forum’s Future of Jobs Report, emotional intelligence will be one of the top 10 job skills in 2020.” We found this eye-opening stat in a great piece in Fast Company. When we place value in someone’s ability to forge Connections and label that as a strength, we build great leaders and great teams. What once was deemed a “soft skill,” emotional intelligence is increasingly one of your greatest professional assets.
Celebrating you and your team’s ability to lead in a way that’s not only cognitively but also emotionally intelligent helps create meaning in your work each and every day. Emotionally intelligent individuals are not only better at connecting with others, they’re better at connecting a problem to the best solution.
When we tune into the way in which we are connected to everyone and everything around us, we create more compassionate services and servants. Our Connection to the universal “we” helps us find greater meaning in our purpose within our organizations.
