Understanding the Impact of Emotional Intelligence with Phil Johnson

By Kelly Barner | June 14, 2023

The rate of change and level of stress faced by most people today certainly justifies an emotional response. But how self-aware and self-possessed are we? The answer to that questions has to do with our emotional intelligence.

In this episode of The Sourcing Hero podcast, Host Kelly Barner welcomes Phil Johnson. Phil is an executive coach, podcast host, and author who focuses on fueling people’s personal and professional success through stronger emotional intelligence. His book, The Servant Warrior Leader: Mastering Authentic Business Leadership, brings together the power of emotional intelligence and the challenge of leadership – especially given the rate of change we face today.


In this interview, Phil shares his in-depth expertise to answer questions such as:

  • What is Emotional Intelligence (EI)? 
  • How does a person’s EI affect how they deal with stressful situations?
  • Why is EI especially important now? Is it possible to develop or improve EI?
  • How can leaders safely start an EI-based conversation in the workplace?
