L/MWS (5) Making the Connection: Leading with Emotional Intelligence


How can you leverage your employees' strengths and capabilities?

How can you be assured that your employees operate from a growth mindset that creates employee engagement, cooperation, workplace harmony, and effective human relations?  According to Jack Welch (former Chair of GE), "a leader's intelligence has to have a strong emotional component....high levels of self-awareness, maturity and doubt emotional intelligence is more rare than book smarts, but my experience says it is actually more important in the making of a leader.  You just can't ignore it."
