Stuart LevineWhat traits and behaviors will impact your success as a leader and the ability of your organization to successfully transform itself?  Can these behaviors be learned? An ever-increasing number of studies show that people at all organizational levels can improve their careers and ability to lead successful teams and companies through self-awareness, self-control, motivation, empathy and social skill.  These five qualities comprise emotional intelligence.

Effective leaders possess significant EI.  The traditional leadership qualities and a high IQ are not enough.  David Goleman, who popularized the term in his 1995 book “Emotional Intelligence” stated: “… emotional intelligence is the sine qua non of leadership. Without it, a person can have the best training in the world, an incisive, analytical mind, and an endless supply of smart ideas, but he still won’t make a great leader.” 

Goleman’s research and that of many others demonstrate that it is exactly the soft skills associated with EI that are tied to measurable business results, including higher profitability and ROI.
