    Presentation Topic:

    Emotional Intelligence (EQ) for Managers: Understanding Self to Influence Others

    Mark Griffiths
    Client Partner, Newleaf Training & Development

    The World Economic Forum’s Future of Jobs Report states that emotional intelligence will be one of the top 10 job skills by 2022, it is therefore critical that business leaders understand why hiring for this skill is critical to a successful business.
    Simply put, managers with high emotional intelligence (EQ) combined with a high IQ tend to lead people better to achieve organizational results.
    Incorporating an understanding of EQ into your workplace can improve management effectiveness, increase teamwork and have a positive impact on key measures.
    More and more, organizations are discovering that emotional intelligence skills in managers are a vital component of their organization’s success. Great managers know how to bring out the best of people — EQ is a vital part of that skill set.
    Managers who possess high EQ approach supervisory responsibilities from a different perspective. They understand the importance of communicating effectively with staff members and treating each employee with respect while remaining laser-focused on the organization’s desired results.

    • Consider why Emotional Intelligence matters and is an essential component in high performing organizations
    • Appreciate the economic impact of EQ
    • Discuss the attributes of Emotionally Intelligent managers
