High EQ Leadership Development: From Good to Great Organisations

Course Overview

Have you ever wondered why some extremely intelligent managers fail miserably when they try to lead? One reason may be that they have overemphasized cognitive intelligence (IQ) at the cost of their emotional intelligence (EQ). EQ is in fact a major factor that determines the difference between highly successful managers and those who are less successful. In “Working with Emotional Intelligence,” Goleman (1998) suggests that the most important factor that distinguishes effective leaders is not their IQ but their Emotional Intelligence Quotient (EQ).

Depending on the size of your organization, your leaders may influence the actions of hundreds, even thousands of employees. Little can compare to the value of outstanding leadership. Outstanding leaders, who inspire trust and high performance even in difficult or changing times, are fundamental to transforming your organization from good to great. However, in the present global economic crisis, leadership effectiveness may just determine the survival of your organization.

Emotional intelligence (EQ) is the ability to use emotions effectively. Since the publication of the initial research in 1990, innovative organizations have begun testing how to integrate EQ into training and hiring to gain competitive advantage. It is becoming increasingly clear that these skills are the foundation for high-performing and profitable organizations. The evidence is increasingly compelling. The measurable, learnable skills of emotional intelligence (EQ) make a significant impact on organizational performance. EQ may be essential to differentiating world-class organizations in an increasingly complex and competitive marketplace.

Companies have demonstrated that using EQ in training and organizational climate change can reduce costs associated with turnover, absenteeism, and low performance. Research has provided clear evidence that emotionally intelligent leaders are more successful. Many of these studies yield bottom-line results:

  • At PepsiCo, executives selected for EQ competencies generated 10% more productivity.
  • High EQ sales people at L’Oreal brought in $2.5 million more in sales.
  • An EQ initiative at Sheraton Studio City Hotel helped increase market share by 24%, increased customer satisfaction by 8% and reduction in staff turnover by 20%.

Today, top notch organisations need to take the initiative to develop their managers into High EQ Leaders, who will in turn foster a High EQ workplace climate conducive to high performance. These workplaces will yield significantly higher productivity, staff retention, and profitability. This is how an organisation change from GOOD to GREAT!
