At Guardian Business Group, we offer the EQ experience to leaders who have demonstrated a genuine belief that strong relationships with people is the key to finding happiness and prosperity (personally and professionally).
Emotional Intelligence (EQ) is a set of emotional and social skills that influence the way we perceive and express ourselves, develop and maintain social relationships, cope with challenges, and use emotional information in an effective and meaningful way.
Leaders must be open to pushing themselves towards becoming a person of positive influence. The EQ report will help you understanding yourself at a deeper level and also provide insight into how others may perceive your attitude and behaviour.
As executive and leadership development coaches, we’re often asked what it takes to be a great leader. Most leaders are smart people (IQ) and are technically competent (TS), however we’ve noticed that great leaders are able to make people feel good about themselves. They have a unique ability to establish rapport and connect with their people at a deeper level.
Great leaders prosper in communications, earn the trust and respect from everyone, and create a safe & friendly environment of teamwork and collaboration. Great leaders realize they are in the PEOPLE business. They possess a high level of Emotional Intelligence (EQ)!
Emotional Intelligence Is the Other Kind of Smart.
When EQ first appeared to the masses in 1995, it served as the missing link in a peculiar finding: people with average IQs outperform those with the highest IQs 70% of the time. This anomaly threw a massive wrench into what many people had always assumed was the sole source of success….IQ.
Decades of research now point to emotional intelligence as the critical factor that sets star performers apart from the rest of the pack.
World class leaders have a combination of IQ + Technical Skill + EQ
Research has demonstrated that an individual’s Emotional Intelligence is often a more accurate predictor of success than the individual’s IQ. No matter how intellectually intelligent someone is, their success is still governed by how well they communicate their ideas and interact with their peers.
