27 Aug The Magical Workweek
Awareness. Inspiration. Success.
For business owners, team leaders, and entrepreneurs, working alongside others is a daily reality. Almost every moment, you face colleagues, team members, and clients; people who trust and look up to you – people who expect outstanding results from you again and again.
What many business people don’t realize, is that your awareness and control of your own emotions, and your awareness and empathy of others – can make or break your business. In fact, your ability to deal with emotion is your ticket to success.
Author Travis Bradberry puts it plainly, “Decades of research now point to emotional intelligence as the critical factor that sets star performers apart from the rest of the pack.” http://www.entrepreneur.com/article/241998
These skills are game-changers for business owners, team leaders, and entrepreneurs:
From your team to your clients, each of your interactions count. Business owners tuned into emotion are able to build trusting relationships with both employees and customers, win lasting respect, and empower their workforce to achieve more, faster than ever.
By gaining a deep understanding of your own emotions, and tuning into your team’s feelings, you suddenly become a powerful example; intuiting ways to lead your team to new heights.
From the self-motivation it takes to kick-start each day, to the social interactions you have with clients, Emotional and Social Intelligence or ESI are critical tools for those working independently. Entrepreneurs with these skills experience high levels of client satisfaction, and more meaningful, sustainable success.
Your Intelligence. At Your Fingertips.
In his book Social Intelligence, published in 2006, psychologist Daniel Goleman points out, “…rapport only arises between people, as a property that emerges from their interaction.” http://www.danielgoleman.info/topics/social-intelligence/
Learn to have powerful interactions, and watch your career and your business evolve. Emotional and Social Intelligence are two tools that help you transcend the normal every single day, and elevate to a new level of communication, performance, and success.
