You might think that for your business to be truly successful you need smarter people, a better product, or a more strategic plan. But chances are what your team really needs is greater emotional intelligence (EQ).
Countless studies show that it’s skills like empathy, self-awareness, and communication that set people up for success and make organizations more profitable. Too often EQ is undervalued as “soft skills,” but it goes beyond how much people “like” you. EQ influences not only your professional success but your company’s bottom line. It’s why 71% of hiring managers said emotional intelligence (EQ) is more important than IQ.
At UNA we know that to be true, which is why we brought in John Chisholm of Ember Learning for an in-depth EQ training. John is a brilliant management consultant who has helped over 400 businesses build better teams, resolve conflicts, and invest in organizational development.
His workshop on how groups can improve their EQ is a training every business should have; which is why today I’m sharing my takeaways from our session. Including why EQ is crucial for your organization’s success, and how both you and your team can improve your EQ.
