Studies show emotional intelligence means more than cognitive ability for entrepreneurial and positional leadership success. Business owners and positional leaders who lead with self-awareness and empathy can weather economic storms, build better relationships, and stay motivated — while uplifting up their teams.
Leaders — whether you are starting your own business, leading a team, department, division, or in charge of the entire company — you need emotional intelligence. You set the temperature for the rest of the organization and emotional intelligent influences your team to act the same.
