Emotional Intellegence

Just £24.99

Many managers mistakenly assume that leadership style is a function of personality rather than a strategic choice. Instead of choosing the one style that suits their temperament, they should ask which style best addresses the demands of a particular situation. 

Research has shown that the most successful leaders have strengths in the following emotional intelligence competencies:  

  • Self-awareness
  • Self-regulation
  • Motivation
  • Empathy
  • Social skill

Our free test will help you to identify any developmental needs and this 38 page e-book will help you and your team develop the five pillars of emotional intelligence (listed above).

As well as an explanation of the five pillars there are also practical tips to start working on straight away. You'll also find, contained in the book, an area for developmental goals, a reflective journal and a developmental log which can be used as evidence for a qualification or a one to one meeting with your manager/mentor. 

It's a great book, packed with information that every leader and manager needs to know to build themselves, their team and the business.
