Emotional Intelligence: How Leaders Tap Into The Power Of The Shared Experience (read it on Malakye.com)
Why Read It? Because in order to be a great leader, you need to be able to understand your own emotions to form a solid connection with others.
- Allow yourself to feel your emotions in order to best address the situation at hand.
- Sometimes people act irrationally during situations that you may find to not be a big deal, but something to consider is that there could be a deeper underlying problem that you aren't seeing.
- Being emotionally intelligent helps you communicate better with one another because of a shared understanding of what different emotions feel like.
"People with the ability to go to their feelings seem to “go with their gut”, “have an intuition”, and “feel in touch” with their relationships and decisions."
