I’ve been working with a business leader who is struggling to retain personnel. According to ta Gallup poll the primary reason people choose to leave their job is that they have a poor relationship with their boss. This was definitely an issue for him, so we had a long talk about emotional intelligence. The good news for him is that this is definitely something that can be learned!
Dr. Daniel Goleman defines emotional intelligence as “The capacity for recognizing our own feelings and those of others, for motivating ourselves, and for managing emotions well – in ourselves and in our relationships.”
When you can be self-aware and manage your own emotions, then you can truly gain social awareness of others and have more successful and productive interactions. This is critical for our home and work lives.
When it comes to being motivated – for yourself and others – the critical factors are knowing your values, finding the why and the joy in everything you do, and making time for self-reflection.
Have trouble relating to others? Give me a call!
