In one of Harvard Business Review’s most popular leadership articles, What Makes a Leader (1998), Daniel Goleman states:
“My research, along with other recent studies, clearly shows that 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 s/he still won’t make a great leader.”
Nearly 25 years later, that intuitive statement continues to hold true in the modern business world. According to the 2018 State of the Heart Research, individuals who focus on developing Emotional Intelligence (EQ) are 8.2 times more likely to experience greater outcomes. Organizations that focus on promoting and developing EQ as a part of their business strategy are 22 times more likely to experience greater outcomes.
The outcomes studied within the parameters of this research include effectiveness, relationships, well-being, and purpose. So, how can you personally become a better leader and colleague through the power of EQ?

Do you slow down enough to recognise and name your emotions throughout the day?
If not, now is the time to learn the importance of validating your feelings.
Discover that all feelings have value, and learn to lean into your emotions, while working to identify and control anger, resentment, and irritation.
When you learn to harness your emotions, you will begin to make intentional reactive choices – instead of instinctive knee-jerk reactions in confrontational or tense situations.
Our thoughts are part of who we are, and they all have their place. But when we can learn to redirect our thoughts with intention, we can better control our response to a heated situation.
35,000. That’s how many conscious decisions you make each day! Some are minor, some are complex, but they all carry consequences and impact your personal and professional relationships.
Resilience is key in the workplace – not everything is going to go your way. There are good days and bad days. But it is crucial to move forward with intention and put the past where it belongs – in the past.
Everyone feels stressed and overwhelmed at times. In order to avoid burnout, it is essential to learn strategies to maintain focus, eliminate distractions, set priorities, delegate tasks, and manage workloads effectively.
