Even though our world of work has a better understanding of the overall importance Emotional Intelligence (EQ), we continue to see EQ Leadership development decline in the workplace. Organizations and leadership teams have become overworked, stressed and under-resourced due to industry shifts. This is the time when people skills are needed the most. Many companies and leaders don't know how to prioritize these important skills or how to bring forth a business case to invest and build this critical skillset. Leadership teams just don't have the bandwidth or the expertise within a company to educate, improve and maintain high levels of EQ. Therefore we see employee engagement decline, high levels of employee turnover and decreased productivity.
40% of companies reported that it is difficult for them to teach leaders and employees EQ on their own. This is why bringing in the right Organizational & Leadership Coach is so important to your current leadership journey and your future team success.
