In This Episode

In this episode, we talk about the team dynamics and emotional intelligence overlap that your team needs to have. We will discuss:

Team Dynamics and Emotional Intelligence

Recently, I had a personal value disrespected. While it looked like I was angry, I wasn’t. The problem is that disrespect and anger can present similarly. Where I failed was to make a clear expectation of my result. When that expectation wasn’t met, it wasn’t the other person’s fault. It was mine. I needed to do better. Learning how to name, identify and express emotions appropriately is part of what it means to be a mission-critical leader. Had I done better, the team would have performed better. Let’s learn about the relationship between team dynamics and emotional intelligence.

Episode 9

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. Podcast Cover Art for episode 9

In contrast to this, mission-critical leaders strive to practice a high degree of emotional intelligence.

Let’s talk about it.

Welcome to the Mission-Critical Leadership Podcast! In this episode, we’re talking about three leadership lessons from the Civil War you need to learn on your journey as a mission-critical leader.

We’re all on a journey. We all face hardships. We all have shortcomings and difficulties. That’s a given. What’s not a given, is our response. We can choose to rise to those moments, see an opportunity instead of an obstacle, and choose to rise above.

OR

We can shrink back, live in fear, and play small.

The American Civil War gave us insights into both. While there are thousands of lessons we could cover, today, we’re going to cover three.

Three Leadership Lessons from the Civil War

1.) The Rosecrans Principle – or why you need to take action and not just plan.

2.) Learn Self-Master – or why people loved Lincoln (and they’ll love you too).

3.) Learn to apologize – or why humility is your greatest leadership asset.

As a history fan, and a mild Civil War historian, I can’t wait to share this episode with you.

Let’s dive into three leadership lessons from the Civil War!
