Why do managers need emotional intelligence (EQ)?

Take a look at some stats, and it immediately becomes clear — 92% of leaders with strong emotional self awareness have teams with high energy and high performance.  Plus, emotional intelligence has been named as one of the top leadership mindsets for the future of work by Korn Ferry. Yet, EQ still remains a relatively unexplored skill, with only 22% of 155,000 leaders identified as having emotional intelligence.

So, it’s time to re-evaluate our meaning of intelligence. We have a tendency to focus on IQ as a measure of our brain’s strength, when in fact it’s capacity can not be measured in one single form. Daniel Goleman, psychologist and author of emotional intelligence said: ‘In a very real sense we have two minds, one that thinks and one that feels.’

Learning to tap in to the aptitude of both of our brains can broaden our intellectual capacity, where both our emotional and logical brains hold equal weight. This not only realises new potential in ourselves, but has positive impacts to those around us. You’ve probably experienced the effect of great emotional intelligence yourself — a conversation that has left you feeling truly heard by an empathetic leader, or simply a calm and collected colleague. But, how well developed are your own emotional intelligence skills? Take some time to look inwards, and you may be provided with some valuable insights that you can use to build this part of your brain.

Take this emotional intelligence test now, and measure your own EQ.
