Another very important benefit of an increased EQ is higher productivity, both of individuals and the team.

Here are 5 important productivity by-products of Higher EQ:

Emotional Intelligence Importance to Teams

We have looked at EQ a number of times in our posts.  This post looks at the importance Emotional Intelligence plays in the development of successful teams.  Yes… teams have a collective emotional quotient!  And developing High Team EQ is a Success Habit!

For a team to be truly successful, individual team members must be committed to the greater good of the team.  Collaboration replaces competitiveness. After all, if you are on the same team, why would you want to operate against each other.

A Good “How To” List for Improving Your EQ

Researchers have confirmed what Human Resource professionals have known for quite some time.  One’s level of emotional intelligence is a great predictor of success at work as well as a measurement of healthy and productive relationships and leadership abilities.

Research has also shown that EQ is the second most important factor in job performance, only behind cognitive intelligence.  So, it stands to reason that we will all benefit by improving our personal Emotional Intelligence Quotient!

Do You Think Low EQ Doesn’t Affect Your Workplace?

High EQ Workplaces experience high employee engagement.   Low EQ Workplaces experience high turnover, burnout, low productivity, and declining sales.   Now, read these two sentences again and let it sink in…

Say What??    Yes, Low EQ Workplaces can mean big problems to your bottom line!

What If You Could Improve Your Life By over 50%?

Prominent research shows that up to 58% of performance on the job is due to skills such as:

  • Self-Awareness
  • Self-Regulation
  • Motivation
  • Empathy
  • Social Skills

These skills also regulate and predict personal success as well!

Emotional Intelligence, or EQ, is the ability to sense, understand, and effectively apply the power and acumen of emotions to facilitate higher levels of collaboration and productivity.  Can your organization use more of this???
