The People Intelligence philosophy on leadership is simple – at the core of successful leadership is emotional intelligence and at the core or emotional intelligence is self-awareness. Without a solid foundation (self-awareness and self-management) a leader will struggle with building a structure (awareness of others and relationships) that directly impacts performance and results.
Emotional intelligence has become one of the most sought after corporate training courses. EI is the ability to perceive, assess and manage your own and other's emotions. The more adept you become at recognizing and understanding emotional triggers in yourself and others the more constructive your interactions will be.
Unlike IQ and personality, emotional intelligence can be developed and improved throughout your lifetime. However, it requires practice on a daily basis, much like playing an instrument, speaking a foreign language or performing athletically.
Why emotional intelligence matter?
- 83% of people high in self-awareness are top performers
- EQ is twice as important as IQ for achieving life goals
- People with average IQ's outperform and out-earn those with high IQ 70% of the time.
People Intelligence uses an approach based in science and honed over years of corporate experience to help people recognize their emotions and redirect them constructively. It's about identifying and finding out where the behaviors come from and then identifying alternate ways of expression. Once we understand why we do what we do, our ability to modify behavior will follow.
