The Value of Emotional Intelligence with Phil Johnson

Episode 32

According to the The World Economic Forum, Emotional Intelligence is one of the top-ten, must-have job skills of the twenty-first century. And that doesn’t surprise me in the least. Here’s why…because the difference between success and failure as a leader often comes down to one’s ability to relate to people. It’s all about relationships. The lack of emotional intelligence is usually pretty easy to recognize. It’s the manager that throws a tantrum when things don’t go his way or is quick to throw one of his people under the bus in a meeting. It’s the coworker who shares way too much at the wrong time, it’s the leader who lacks empathy–asking you to sacrifice your family time, while he leaves early, and then claims the credit for your hard work. It’s anyone who lacks the ability to control their emotions and have empathy for others. You will recognize it pretty quickly with most people–and let’s hope that that person isn’t a key stakeholder in your life or work. Most people readily recognize people who have emotional intelligence in abundance. They are authentic, they are usually good listeners, and they attract people to them–you just want to be around them because they bring out the best in others. They’re safe.
