Mission-Critical Leaders all have a high degree of leadership emotional intelligence. You can’t be a great leader without it. In this episode of the Mission-Critical Leadership Podcast, we talk about ways you can become aware of, enhance, and grow your leadership emotional intelligence.
Years ago, I worked with a leader who had two emotional states: disinterest and anger. He was difficult to work with, extremely negative, and frequently became hostile. When it came time for performance reviews, he could never understand why he wasn’t promoted.
He was an emotionally unintelligent leader. And he hurt a lot of people.
In contrast to this, mission-critical leaders strive to practice a high degree of emotional intelligence.
Let’s talk about it.
