As the pace of organizational change continues to accelerate, the importance of emotional intelligence increases with it. Driven by competition, innovation, increased globalization and rapid technological change, leaders, managers and staff, now more than ever, must employ emotional intelligence to get the best from their people.
Center for Creative Leadership studies show that leaders with a high level of self-awareness significantly outperform all others. As a matter of fact, the competencies of self-awareness, self-regulation, motivation, empathy and social skills have been found to be far more important than ever realized in staff at all levels.
