The world seems to be talking much about Emotional Intelligence and its importance in leadership success. In a definitive sense, EI refers to an individual’s ability to identify, understand and manage own emotions and those of others around. It’s about keeping your calm and responding with solutions. If you were to recognise the importance of EI in leadership, make a choice here. Who out of the two would you like to become or have as your Manager – one who yells at the team under stress or the one who keeps calm and constantly focuses on the solution without venting out at others?

The Emergence of this EI derivative called Emotional Quotient or EQ has had many leaders debate or jostle between EQ and IQ (Intelligence Quotient). A common perception that seems creeping up is that “EQ will likely replace IQ”. Our take, predisposed to an in-depth study of the subject and an extensive experience in resolving the underlying problems, differs here. For leadership to acquire and sustain success, EQ and IQ must complement each other and not replace or outdo one another. If you are wondering how, you’ve found us rightly. Our customized programs help you identify your existing blockers and resolve them for a higher performance as a leader.

Before you jump to conclusions or a dismissal, have a quick check on which EQ values you are enduring already and which ones you may be lacking.

Shalini Bhattacharya has been coaching our senior management team to use EI for their career growth. We have observed notable changes in the people being coached and one of the key things is their ability to accept their emotions and responses and the why. This has enabled them tailor their responses. They are moving towards efficiency and actually seem far more in control. We are going to continue coaching our people across levels owing to the experience we have had with our senior management team.
