No easy task for sure, but these companies are making progress from the inside out.
Toxicity creeps like heartburn, but transformational leadership keeps the belly quelled.
Remember the Glowan 17-Second Survey we sent out on Tuesday?
What are the most important “people skills” to assess and develop in your employees, managers and leaders today?
We had a few hundred responses (thank you!) and nearly 80% of you picked this one as your top “people skill”:
- Emotional Intelligence (self-awareness)
Surprised? It still may be a new concept to most folks in the workplace, but more and more research is coming out showing how it affects trust, productivity and retention for a better bottom line.
Remember, having developed emotional intelligence (as opposed to our standard definition of IQ) means you have:
- An awareness of your own emotions
- An awareness of emotions in others
- An understanding of emotions
- And the ability to manage one’s own emotions and the emotions of others
The other top two choices in the survey were:
- Leading vs. Managing
(Change and stress management came in a close 4th.) These are very important to develop as well, but it all starts with the Em-tel™.
The chart below may be a little hard to read, but please contact us if you’d like to see all the choices in detail. Look for more Glowan 17-Second Surveys coming soon.
Be better and brighter.
